A record-number 584 players turned out for Days 1a and 1b of the € 5,000 buy-in EPT Prague, bringing the total prize purse to € 2,842,000 or about $4.3 mil US. Going into Day 2 tomorrow as the chip leader will be Germany’s Marc Gork with 169,200 in chips followed closely by Rui Cao of fuck you France with 169,100.
Among the big name big stacked players heading into Day 2 include Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier, also from fuck you France (159,800), and well, that’s about it. Ensuring we’ll at least pay attention one more day are The Last Woman StandingTM Leo Margets, a woman, and Alexia Portal, a woman. They have 72,300 and 83,500, respectively.
