Mike Leah Tops Day 2 of partypoker Grand Prix Canada

0

Just 38 players remain after Day 2 of the partypoker Live Grand Prix Canada concluded Sunday evening at Playground Poker Club. Canadian poker legend Mike Leah sits atop the counts after the field was minimized from 269 players.

Leah began the day around the middle of the pack and steadily climbed the rungs all day long. During the last few levels, Leah shifted into over-gear and took over the lead, finishing with 6,054,000, more than three times the average stack.

Leandre St-Laurent, who led more most of the day, bagged up second place in chips with 5,414,000. Other big stacks include Benjamin Bracken (4,239,000), Robert Leboeuf (3,916,000), and Kyle Chang (3,570,000).

The Golden Chip last longer bonus promotion is still in play as 11 of the 38 players still in contention, including Mike Leah, hold the potential $20,000 prize offer. The last player standing with Golden Chip intact will instantly win $20,000.

Notable Canadians still battling include Timothy Deering (2,900,000), Francois Allard (2,416,000) who started the day as the chip leader, Scott Montgomery (1,137,000), and Eric Afriat (1,110,000).

Everyone who returned to action on Day 2 was already in the money, booking a payday of at least $400 which was paid out to their partypoker accounts immediately after they qualified. A few Canucks to see their ride come to an end on Day 2 include Victor Artemenko (56, $1,150), Jason Comtois (63, $1,150), Nicola Basile (65, $1,150), Will Molson (117, $800), and Michael Malm (132, $700).

The remaining players will return to Playground at 7pm local time on Monday evening to play down to a champion and a top prize of $100,000. There will be a cards-up live stream of the final table on a short delay.
