31 left at WPT National Diamond Championship

Saturday, 12 February 2011

The €5,000 WPT National Diamond Championship in Paris is nearing the business end with just 31 of the original 188 starters still in contention.

Sweden's Nichlas Mattson heads the chip counts at the end of day 2 but all eyes will be on Sam Trickett who is very handily placed in 6th place. Last month's Bluff Europe cover star has had an amazing start to the year with huge wins in the Macau cash games and deep runs in the High Roller events at the PCA and Aussie Millions. Nottingham's finest is firmly in contention to add a title to his impressive cash scores.

The money bubble looks set to be burst later today with the eventual winner set to walk away with €243,830.

The leading chip counts are as follows:

Nichlas Mattson (Sweden) 319 500
Benjamin Pollak (France) 307 300
Tobias Wagner (Germany) 295 000
Alexandre Brivot (France) 288 600
Jérôme Zerbib (France) 288 400
Sam Trickett (Englan) 287 000
Yacoub Dori (Lebanon) 277 000
Philip Jacobson (Denmark) 231 700
Manuel Bevand (France) 174 400
Pierre Le Dour (France) 174 000
