Oscar Lima heads EPT Tallinn going into day 2

Wednesday, 3 August 2011

As expected, numbers for the second opening flight of EPT Tallinn was much bigger than day 1A with 190 players coughing up the €4,250 buy-in making a total field of 298 runners. By bagging up time it was Oscar Lima who had the chip lead.

The Spaniard closed the day with a stack of 132,000 just ahead of Finnish pro Jani Sointula on 123,950, Anatolii Ozhenilok on 108,125 and Sergy Pilugin on 101,650. There are plenty of big names further down the leader board including Jeff Sarwer, Juha Helppi, Ville Wahlbeck, Sami 'Larsluzak' Kelopuro and defending champion Kevin Stani.

Kevin Green heads the UK challenge with 65,750 with JP Kelly, Matthew Ashton, Chris Brammer and Charles Clark all returning tomorrow.

A total of 40 players will make the money with the min cash set at €6,500. The lucky eight to make the final table will walk away with at least €25,000 with the winner taking home €275,000.
