Both opening flights of the European Poker Tour Deauville Main Event have finished. Day 2 kicks off today at 12:00 CET and around 360 players (of 591 entries) will be returning to the poker tables - plus any latecomers as the registration is open until the cards are back in the air.
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!
Day 3 of the World Poker Tour Mazagan (Morocco) main event is running at the moment and there are 20 players left out of 146. The average stack is 219,000 and the chip leader is Frederic Brunet with 360,500 chips.
Gaelle Baumann, who finished 10th in the 2012 WSOP main event, was eliminated a while ago, but there are still some familiar faces left with the chance of winning the first prize of $168,207! Just to mention 3 of them: Champions Club Members Davidi Kitai and Guillaume Darcourt, and the winner of the 2011 WSOP HORSE Championship ($609,130): Fabrice Soulier.
The EPT Bacelona main event began on Saturday and already the 2 starting days are in the books. In total, the main event attracted a field of 811 players and 407 of them have chips left and will return to the tables today. Guillaume Darcourt, from France, finished 35th in the World Series of Poker main event this summer and now he's the EPT Barcelona chip leader with 195,300. As you can see in the picture, it's not hard to spot out the chip leader among the other players.
