Only 59 of 862 players remain after two days (well, four days if you include the starting days) of intensive poker at the PartyPoker World Poker Tour Montreal Main Event.
Although a lot of big names fell during Day 2, including Phil Laak, Matt Salsberg, Gavin Smith and Antonio Esfandiari, there are still quite a few familiar faces left in the mix of players who still have the chance of going all the way to the title and the top prize of half a million dollars!
Ludovic Lacay is one of them. The Frenchman will lead the way into Day 3 with 1,261,000 chips. He has $3.1 million in live tournament winnings and two WPT final tables to his name, so don't be surprised if he wins this one. Other notables who will return to the poker tables later on today are, for example, two-time WPT champion Jonathan Little (1,053,000 - 4th place), 2013 WPT National Cannes champion Guillaume Darcourt (952k - 6th place), and 2005 WPT Foxwoods Poker Classic winner Victor Ramdin (222k - 43rd place).
