Thursday, 12 April 2012

Day 1b of the World Poker Tour Vienna saw a turnout of 233 players to give us an overall field of 396. After the opening flights, Darko Stojanovic is the runaway chip leader with 320,000 chips, over 50% more than the second place and near double the Day 1a chip leading stack.

Of the 179 survivors, Sam El Sayed in fifth on 182,700 chips is the highest-ranked notable name, though there are still some famous faces playing out Day 2 today. Faraz Jaka, Marvin Rettenmaier, Chris Moorman, Anton Wigg, Toby Lewis, Andy Black, Roberto Romanello and Yevgeniy Timoshenko all survived with above-average stacks.

Trailing them but still alive are ElkY, Andy Frankenberger, Eugene Katchalov, Jonathan Duhamel, Adam Levy and Xuan Liu. Of the remaining players, 45 will receive at least $8,676 with the winner set to take home $402,300.
