Bubble nears at EPT San Remo – Cada in contention

Bubble nears at EPT San Remo – Cada in contention

Saturday, 30 April 2011

Just 164 of the 928 EPT San Remo starters were left at the close of Day 2 meaning that 20 will be going home disappointed later today as the bubble will burst at 144 players.

Leading the way is Georgios Manousos from Greece who closed the day with a stack of 573,900, just ahead of Italian Germano Martucci on 545,300. There are a host of big names looming though with EPT Snowfest runner-up Kevin Vandermissen, former EPT Barcelona winner Carter Phillips and 2009 WSOP Main Event champion Joe Cada all in the top 10 of the chip counts.

Other notables still in contention include Victor Ramdin, Max Lykov, Ted Forrest, Ludovic Lacay and Vanessa Selbst. London's Kamal Choraria heads a strong British challenge which also includes John Eames, David Vamplew, Roberto Romanello, Andrew Teng, Rupert Elder, James Sudworth and Tom Macdonald.

The first goal for players returning today is to survive the bubble and make a min cash of €7,500. A trip to the final table will guarantee a pay day of at least €81,950 with the winner set to walk away with €930,000.
