The first day of the first poker tournament staged on the hallowed turf of Wembley Stadium is in the book with plenty of big names still in the hunt for the €1m first prize.
Day 2A of the International Stadiums Poker Tour (ISPT) attracted a field of 319 players and after eight levels of play it was Frenchman Alban Juen leading the way with a stack of 367,500. The former business student earned a six figure score after cashing in the WSOP Main Event in 2010 and will have eyes on an even bigger pay day after yesterday's impressive start. Juen will face plenty of competition though with the likes Leigh Wiltshire (326,900), Jamie Burland (164,800), Mathew Frankland (150,400), ISPT ambassadors David Benyamine and (139,900) and Sam Trickett (132,600) and Hendon Mobster Barny Boatman (100,100) all surviving the day's action. All told, 171 players will be back for day 3. Notables who won't be amongst that number (unless they rebuy today) included the likes of Michael Mizrachi, Chris Brammer and former WSOP Main Event winner Peter Eastgate. An even bigger field is expected for today's second Day 2 flight. And if you can't afford the ISPT Main Event buy-in there's plenty of side action on offer.
