With EPT London winding down over the weekend it was the turn of the World Series Of Poker Europe (WSOPE) to steal the focus of the poker community with the first tournament in it eight-event roster.
As reported earlier today the first bracelet of the year was won by Jackie Glazier on Saturday, but with more action to cram into the two-week festival there wasn't time for the organisers to share in her joy. Indeed, Saturday also saw the start of Event #2, the €1,100 No Limit Hold'em re-entry event. With pros filtering in from all corners of the globe the opening session saw 261 players take to the felt and by the time the action was brought to a close it was Niels Herrgodts leading the way with 55,000 chips. Whilst the like of Phil Hellmuth, Ryan Reiss, Matthew Ashton and Nacho Barbero all failed to make it through Day 1A, Herrgodts was able to top the session's 39 survivors. Day 1B saw a marked increase in the number of players taking to the felt and by the time the 398 starters had played through nine levels the field was left with just 46 hopefuls. Of those still standing it was Germany's Kilian Kramer leading the way with 102,400 chips. That stack was enough to put him top of the overall chip counts ahead of such luminaries as Chino Rheem (62,600), Scott Clements (40,100) and Barry Greenstein (31,800).Day 2 will get under way later and play down to a final table before another bracelet is handed out on Tuesday.
