Jeff Sarwer leads the way at EPT Vilamoura
Thursday, 19 November 2009
A field of 186-players sat down for Day 1B of the latest EPT event in Portugal yesterday and at the close of play there was a familiar face at the top of the leader board. Anyone who followed the action at EPT Warsaw will be aware of Canada’s Jeff Sarwer who was chip leader for much of the final day in Poland. The chess master continued that excellent form in Vilamoura, dominating proceedings on the second opening day, eliminating ElkY and building a stack of 142,000.
