The PokerStars European Poker Tour is still in Kyiv, Ukraine, as 68 players who remain out of a 263-strong field are battling towards a first-place prize of €330,000 (£286,000).
The eliminations today were fast and furious, with the 203 day one survivors being quickly whittled down to just 68 players. Russia’s Max Lykov leads the field and is probably wondering more than anyone; why the hell he can’t play this awesome game in Russia anymore.During the first 75-minute blind level, 40 players hit the rail including PokerStars pro Katja Thater as well as WSOP bracelet holders Vitaly Lunkin and Alex Kravchenko. Cristian Dragomir, Ivan Demidov, Faraz Jaka, and Nicolas Levi also failed to make it to Day 3.American tournament pro and online fan favourite Shaun Deeb was having a good run of it, making it to the late stages of Day 2 before a check-raise bluff with 33 on a jack-high board got ugly, his opponent – German player Jonas Kronwitter – tabled QQ and held to eliminate Deeb.Day 3 is kicking off this afternoon, with 68 players remaining and 40 making the money. It’s too late for the EPT Kyiv, but if you want to qualify for future events – including London – then head to PokerStars for cheap satellites.
