In case you missed it: The 2013 European Poker Tour London Main Event kicked off a few days ago and attracted a 604-player field. Now, after 2 days of play, there are about 110 players left and Tudor Purice, from Romania, is the chip leader with 628,200 chips.

Purice's winning streak started during level 11 of Day 2 when he eliminated Mike McDonland ( AClubQDiamond ) with 2Heart2Club on a board of 5Heart4Diamond3SpadeASpade3Club to build a stack of 199,000. The second big hand for Purice occurred during level 14...

Giovani Gouveia raised to 5,000 from early position and Purice made it 15,000. All players folded back to Gouveia who four-bet to 28,000. Purice announced "I'm all in" and Gouveia called with his remaining 130,000 or so.

Gouveia: QDiamondQHeart
Purice: AHeartKSpade

The board ran out KHeart6Diamond3Club10Club10Diamond and Purice took down another huge pot.

There are several big names who will return to play in a few hours time, including Team PokerStars Pros Henrique Pinho (150,300), Barry Greenstein (129,300), and Theo Jorgensen (71,200). Another player to keep an eye on during Day 3 is Sebastian Blom who's currently ranked 14th with 271,000 chips. Sebastian is the big brother of high-stakes guru Viktor Blom.

We will back with another update tomorrow!

Calling that with AKo smacks of slightly amateur..doubt he wins it.

This is broadcast on the EPT site if anyone wants to watch, it's slow but pretty cool to see some actual poker.

Haha hope his runs continues and that he makes us smile and we do not here about the old folks again, it would be great to hear about the new bloods lol.

Also about Blom brother, i wonder how his big brother is dealing with his younger brother media attention, his moves will be scrutinized and compare to Viktor every time lol

Anyway good luck guys, hope we get more juicy action!

these pots are the classic flips in tournament poker.the guy raises with a big pocket pair and gets reraised with big slick. the only way to play this hand was the way it played out and luckily he held on. classic tournament play
