Day 2 of World Poker Tour Grand Prix de Paris has now come to an end. The day started with 143 players (we got the numbers wrong yesterday) and ended with 63 after some really exciting and wonderful four levels of poker.
Philipp "Philbort" Gruissem will bring the largest stack (280,600) to the tables today, and there are many well-known faces with healthy stacks in the remaining squad. Just to mention a few: Juha Helppi (222,800), Faraz Jaka (157,400), Jason Mercier (140,700), David Benyamine (137,600) and Theo Jorgensen (126,900).
The money bubble will burst when 27 players remain - all players will then be guaranteed at least $17,154 each. The winner of the tournament will take home bank-busting $515,720, and the runner-up gets $341,149!
