The 2011 EPT London brought in a field of 691 (down from last year’s record of 848), creating a first place prize of £750,000 (otherwise known as $1,162,500).
After two days of play, a total of 180 remain. Leading the way is Benny Spindler of Germany with 410,000. He’s followed by Jamie Rosen with 400,000.
Plenty of notables remain in the field, including but certainly not limited to Sorel Mizzi (180,000), Jake Cody (165,000), Humberto Brenes (132,000), just some guy named Doyle Brunson (120,000), Jason Mercier (112,000), half-man, half-amazing Freddy Deeb (70,000), and Fatima Moreira De Melo, a woman (62,000).
A total of 104 will get paid. Play resumes on Monday. Get full chip counts here.
