WSOP Europe Main Event Day1B


WSOPE-2010The action continued yesterday on Day 1B of the Main Event in London. With both Day ones combined, the final tally is 346 players and a monstrous prize pool of £3,460,000.

The money and glory brought out famed players Antonio Esfandiari, the 2 Phil’s Ivey and Laak, Carlos Mortensen, Mike “The Mouth” Matusow, Freddy Deeb, Bertrand “ElkY” Grospelier, Patrik Antonius and Barry Greenstein.

The two other Mizrachi brothers Eric and Robert also played, but like their brother Michael yesterday, both fail to advance onto Day 2.

From the Canadians, we have Rudy Blondeau from Quebec with 76,975 chips who’s been travelling and in August placed 8th in Brazil and the Latin American Poker Tour. He is followed by Vincent Chahley of Calgary who won Event #7 at the Canadian Open Poker Championships on August 25th.  Andrew Pantling from Toronto returns, with 72,975 chips, who dazzled us on Event 1 with a three day chip lead to finish 2nd to Phil Laak at the end.

Other Canadians in the running from Day 1B are:

Greg Mueller                     60,875 chips        Vancouver, BC
Yann Dion                          58,625 chips        Quebec City, QC
Shawn Buchanan        40,675 chips        Abbotsford, BC
Erik Cajelais           37,500 chips        Lachanaie, QC
Daniel Negreanu  32,475 chips        Las Vegas, NV
Evan John Parkes 20,000 chips        Vancouver, BC
Nenad Medic 11,075 chips        Niagara Falls, ON

November Niner Matt Jarvis from Canada is out of the running after playing several events here in London and so is Jason Senti who played today. This leaves the Italian Filipo Candio who advanced from Day 1A and the two November Niners from Florida who advanced from Day 1B John Dolan from Bonita Springs, FL who was 2nd chip leader on Day 1B and John Racener from Port Richey, FL.

Day 2 plays out today. Stay tuned.
