The World Poker Tour has now made a stop in Amneville, France, and already Day 1a and 1b have been played. Out of the 379 players that paid the €3200 + €300 and entered the tournament, 218 players still have chips left and will return to play Day 2 later on today.

Day 1a was lacking of superstars, but Day 1b attracted quite a few big names. For example there were 2 famous poker couples on show with Liv Boeree/Kevin MacPhee and Catherine Hong/Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier. Unfortunately both MacPhee and ElkY hit the rail at the early stages of Day 1b, but luckily both their girlfriends made it through to Day 2. Other notables that made it to Day 2 are Jamies Rosen, Arnaud Mattern, Joseph Cheong and famous French rap artist Bruno "Kool Sheen" Lopes.

48 of 542 players survived the 2 first days of the WPT Amneville Main Event and returned to their seats to play Day 3 a couple hours ago, however, 8 of these players have already been knocked out. It feels like the final table is just a few hours away now. 

Chip leader at the moment is Nesrin Kourdourli who really made a name for herself in Day 2 of the tournament. Now, she's is aiming to reach the final table with a healthy stack and she probably wont let anyone get in her way. Only two PartyPoker online qualifiers are left, and as we mentioned in the previous WPT Amneville update, they have the chance to win $1,000,000 extra if they take down the tournament.
