The 2010 EPT London Main Event brought in a field of 848, making it the largest poker event in U.K. history. Some might even call it a “record.”
Day 2 play is currently underway, with around 230 remaining. Femi Fakinle, who has a UK & Ireland Poker Tour win at Killarney (whatever), is the current chip leader with 465,000. He’s followed by Alex Kravchenko with 325,000.
Other notables remaining in the field include but are certainly not limited to Max Pescatori, Chino Rheem, Noah Boeken, John Juanda, Phil Ivey, Daniel Negreanu, Ivan Demidov, Matt Affleck, “Salty” Joe Hachem, Vicky Coren, Shannon Shorr, Leo Margets, and Eric Baldwin.
A total of 128 get paid, with first banking £900,000. Follow the action here.
