353 players bought into the second opening flight at EPT Vienna yesterday and there was a familiar face, to British poker fans at least, leading the way at the close of play.
Laurence Houghton ended the day as the chip leader, amassing a stack of 190,300 by bagging up time. Joining the Londoner on Day 2 will be fellow Brits Luke Schwartz, Andrew Teng, Surinder Sunar and Richard Gryko who all survived Day 1B.It proved to be an interesting day for Tom Dwan who made a fashionably late arrival at the Kursalon. Durrrr tweeted "Apparently I went to the wrong concord card casino... Blind me off more." The tardy entrance didn't cause too much damage though as Dwan ended the day with over 60,000 chips and is nestled safely in the middle of the field. 278 players join Durrrr for Day 2 including high profiles pros Daniel Negreanu, EPT London High Roller winner Nacho Barbero, Jan Heitmann, Sebastian Ruthenberg, Dario Minieri, Richard Toth and former Wimbledon champ Boris Becker.587 players from 48 countries coughed up the €5,000 buy in making it the biggest tournament in Austrian poker history. The total prize pool is a whopping €2,935,000 with the winner set to take home €700,000.The leading chip counts are as follows:Laurence Houghton UK 190,300Szymon Pieszczoch Poland 183,300Sergii Baranov Ukraine183,200Claudio Simaldoni Switzerland 181,000Giacomo Maisto Italy 172,400Ramon Cserei Romania168,300Martin Hruby Czech Republic159,000Jose Severino Panama 156,000Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.Image courtesy of PokerStars.
