The second starting day of the World Poker Tour Prague Main Event attracted a much bigger player-field than Day 1A (60 entries). A total of 173 players entered Day 1B, and 112 of them made it through to Day 2 after 8 levels of intensive play.
Welshman Josh Cranfield bagged a massive overall chip lead with 176,400 (closest opponent: YINGUI LI with 116,000). Cranfield, who qualified for this tournament via a £12 satellite on party poker, only has around $1,500 in live cashes to his name. In other words, this should be a great opportunity for him to make a mark in the live tournament poker world.
Play will continue today at 9 p.m. local time, with six 90-minute levels on schedule. We will be back with another update tomorrow.
