The latest jaunt to San Remo by the European Poker Tour (EPT) continued yesterday as 381 players sat down for Day 1B of the €4,900 buy-in main event.
Having welcomed 175 on Day 1A for 2014, the overall field inside the Casino Sanremo topped 556. While that number wasn't as high as in previous years it was still enough to push the prizepool beyond the €2.5 million mark.Among the early frontrunners on Day 1B were the likes of Johnny Lodden, Vicky Coren and Sorel Mizzi but none of these could catch David Yan at the close of play. The New Zealander managed to amass 179,000 chips during the second starting flight to finish just ahead of Andrey Lobzhanidze and his 172,800 chips.This haul was not only good enough to top Day 1B's selection of survivors but capture the overall lead heading into Day 2, which kicks off at midday today.While Yan will hold the advantage for the beginning of today’s action, which kicks off from midday, a trailing pack featuring the likes of Roberto Romanello, Mickey Peterson and former EPT San Remo champion Liv Boeree will certainly be putting pressure on his lead.Overall, 316 players will return for Day 2 and this figure will be whittled down to the 200 mark before play breaks for the evening ahead of Thursday's flight.EPT San Remo 2014 Day 2 Leading Chip Counts:1.
