Yesterday saw the money bubble burst at EPT Prague as the final handful of competitors moved closer to an EPT title and €835,000.
Having started with 167 players, the field quickly whittled its way down to 128 players. With at least €8,000 banked most players began to loosen their raising arms and by the end of the day’s fifth level a total of 55 players remained.Hitting the rail on Day 2 were some of the game’s best players, including: Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier, Shannon Shorr and the UK’s John Eames.One player who didn’t sink or swim during the day was Iosif Beskrovnyy. After leading the field since Day 1, the Russian grinder stagnated somewhat and finished the session with 601,000 chips (from a starting stack of 625,200).While Beskrovnyy was treading water, Ramzi Jelassi, Chris Brammer and Jeff Sarwer were all swimming out in front. After a rush of cards throughout the day it was Sweden’s Jelassi that broke the million chip mark first, before ending the day on 1,238,000 ahead of Brammer (1,021,000) and Sarwer (963,000).Also still in contention in today’s countdown to 24 players is: Johnny Lodden (456,000), Roberto Romanello (278,000) and Fabrice Soullier (265,000).Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
