In the build-up to Christmas it seems that grinders across the world have been out in force looking to boost their bankroll just in time for the festive season.
Indeed, with the Eureka Prague event breaking the tour’s attendance record, the PokerStars EPT Prague main event has attracted an equally healthy field. Although records weren’t quite broken, a total of 864 players each anted up the €5,000 buy-in across Days 1A and 1B.On display was a host of world class players, including Fabian Quoss, Dominik Nitsche, Alex Kravchenko, Johnny Lodden and last year’s winner, Martin Finger.After two opening days of action the staggered field will now merge later today as the march towards one of the 128 payout spots really begins. Leading the remaining 480 players in the hunt for the €835,000 top prize is Iosif Beskrovnyy with 239,000 chips. He’s followed Vadim Belov (179,300), Jose Alastuery (177,500) and Luis Rodriguez (176,800).Chris Brammer heads the UK challenge with Chris Moorman, Andrew Teng, Roberto Romanello and Jake Cody all handily placed.Today’s action will see the field whittled down even further before the final table commences on Saturday.
