A big congratulations to Team PokerStars Pro Vicky Coren who ended up winning the EPT Sanremo Main Event yesterday for €476,100 and a SLYDE watch! Coren, from UK, was the first women to win an event on the European Poker Tour when she took down the EPT London Main Event in 2006.
Just like Day 1 & Day 2, Day 3 had a new chip leader when the tournament director called it a day after five 90-minute levels of play. Spain's Raul Mestre will be leading the final 39 players into Day 4 with a stack of 942,000, and not far behind him are, for example, Day 2 chip leader Lukas Berglund (867k) and Oliver Busquet (806k) who has over $4.2 million in live tournament earnings.
Another day of play has come to end at Casino Sanremo on the Italian Riviera. 115 players made it through to Day 3 of the EPT Sanremo Main Event with Lukas Berglund from Sweden bagging up the largest stack of chips.
On Thursday, the EPT London High Roller with a £10,300 buy-in (rebuy) kicked off. The tournament saw 127 entries and approximatly 75 players remained after 8 levels of play. Paul Volpe is the chip leader (239,000 chips) heading into Day 2 of the tournament. Volpe has been running extremely good in the past 3 weeks or so. Two weeks ago he finished second in the WPT L.A. Main Event for $651,170, then he finished third in the WPT Bay 101 Shooting Star Main Event for $435,610 last weekend.
We might see more entries today as players can register for the tournament until 11:45 am. Below are the top 10 stacks when the second day kicks off (in a few hours time).
Today the third day of the European Poker Tour London Main Event will be played. There are 114 players still standing and the chip leader is Mantas Visockis (522,200), followed by (equally unknown) Matthias Tikerpe (507,600). Day 2 chip leader and UKIPT London champion Sergio Aido will also return to play today with 251,400 chips.
Isabelle Mercier was part of Team PokerStars Pro for five years. The French-Canadian poker superstar is saying goodbye to one of the most lucrative deals in the poker industry, apparently to "take on new projects".
Mercier yesterday sent out a press release stating that she "currently has extensive projects, both nationally and internationally, in the world of poker" and "is not about to give up her life's passion."
PokerStars said it was Mercier's decision not to renew the sponsorship with them and they wish her all the best in the future, says a representative from PokerStars.
"I'm sad that Isabelle has left Team Pro, but I do understand it. The International tournament circuit is pretty relentless, but Isabelle has embraced the full-on romantic poker life, always on the road, living out of a suitcase for months at a time." said Vicky Coren from Team PokerStars Pro.
