Lots of players (many familiar faces) took part in EPT Main Event Day 1b. Unfortunately many notables went off the trail during the day. Just to mention a few, Eric Lindgren, Daniel Negreanu, Tony G, ElkY, Boris Becker, Pieter de Korver (last year's champ), Jason Mercier.
Of course a few notables made it to Day 2 as well. Joe Cada, Isabelle Mercier, Marcel Luske and Joe Hachem and a few more. But still - would have been nice if more notables made it through Day 1b.
Around 400 player will be returning to play Day 2 of the tournament today. Chip leader is Thiago Decano (264,2000) followed by Paul Berende (195,500) and Tommaso Briotti (175,400). A bit further down in the felt we can find a few big names. For example the PokerStars Pros Joe Cada (123,600) and Alex Gomes (122,800).
