The 2010 EPT Deauville event (which is in the Normandie region of France, in case you were wondering) turned out an impressive field of 768 for a first place prize of € 847,000.
With both Day 1’s done, Robert Cezarescu holds the chip lead, stacked at 216,900.
Notable big stacks still in the field include but are certainly not limited to Ludovic Lacay (185,000), Peter Eastgate (125,000), Shane Schleger (115,000), Dario Minieri (98,000), Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier (45,000), half-man, half-amazing Freddy Deeb (45,000), double-sized-man, somewhat amazing Greg Raymer (36,000), and Jean Robert-Bellande (34,000).
