EPT London down to 24 - Chance Kornuth leads

Sunday, 3 October 2010

The EPT London Main Event field was whittled down to 24 yesterday and by the close of play it was WSOP PLO bracelet winner Chance Kornuth who'd worked his way to the head of the chip counts.

Joining him in the seven figure stack club are long time chip leader David Vamplew, EPT Monte Carlo Grand Finalist Matt Perrins, NAPT winner Tom Marchese and Team Poker Stars Pro Thomas Bichon. John Juanda found time away from visits to the National Gallery (he's quite the art buff given his Twitter updates) to build up a big stack, as did Irishman John O'Shea.

Bubbling just underneath the leaders are the likes of UKIPT winner Jamie Burland and WSOP Main Event winner Joe Hachem with Chad Brown nursing the short stack.

Daniel Negreanu's first EPT cash proved to be of the min variety, as it did for JP Kelly and Nik Persaud. Other notables to hit the rail yesterday included Greg Raymer, Phil Ivey, Tony Cascarino, Alex Kravchenko and Chino Rheem.

The field will be reduced to a final table of eight later today. Join us to see who will be battling it out for the £900,000 first prize.

The leading chip counts are as follows:

Chance Kornuth USA 2302000
Per Ummer Cyprus 1763000
David Vamplew UK 1756000
Steven Levy USA 1719000
Matt Perrins UK 1550000
Artur Wasek Poland 1542000
Thomas Bichon France 1500000
Rumit Somaiya UK 1420000
John O'Shea Ireland 1324000
John Juanda USA 1272000
