The second starting day of the first-ever World Poker Tour Amsterdam Main Event drew a field of 194 entries to the Holland Casino in Amsterdam, Holland. In total, 99 players made it through to Day 2 from Day 1B, with Italian pro Giacomo Fundaro bagging up the overall chip lead.

Amongst the players that didn't make it through the second day were WPT Champions Club Member Michael Mizrachi, Bryn Kenney, Dan Heimiller, and Paul Newey.

According to WPT's website, the total entry count currently stands at 324, with 153 players still in the tournament. We'll be back tomorrow with another update!

This tournament has attracted a sizeable entry list and its good to see. There are plenty of big names left in and there have been quite a few big names eliminated as well

Jacky Fundaro has more in lifetime tournament winnings than I ever going to have in my whole life (even in rice, just think about it) but he only once got close to the Sun, and he was beaten by a woman. That is something he will never forget, even that Coren is an alright player - I would bet on it that heads-up is something he remembers every day still.
