World Series Of Poker Europe Main Event Day 2 Ends With 66 Remaining

September 26th, 2010 – by Glen Farmer

The second day of the World Series of Poker Europe Main Event ended with some heart break for many players, but took expected turns for others. Only 36 players will be paid in the event, with a prize pool of 3,460,000 GBP.

In the remaining 66 were some big names. Eli Elezra is continuing his chase toward his next bracelet. Freddy Deeb was still in the running. Huck Seed, Hoyt Corkins, Barry Greenstein, and Yevgeniy Tomishenko were also still participating in the event.

For many poker fans, Phil Ivey and Daniel Negreanu are the favorites to win their next bracelet. Ivey already took WSOP gold this year, and Negreanu is hoping to add another notch to his belt. Ivey held 6th place at the end of the day, while Negreanu held 33rd. These two poker behemoths held 289,300 and 142,800 chips respectively.

Amongst some of the more important eliminations were lovers Jennifer Tilly and Phil Laak. The two were eliminated in 79th and 81st place. A good friend of Laak, Antonio Esfandiari, had also been eliminated. Esfandiari bit the dust in 100th place. Faraz “the Toilet” Jaka had bit the dust in 164th, while Chris Ferguson managed to hang on a little longer, being eliminated in the 157th position.

The day started with 195, and the field thinned very quickly. At the rate players are beginning to bust, it is uncertain whether or not this event will even need to run into its scheduled 5th day.
