278 players started the second of two opening flights at WPT Amneville yesterday with 130 of them surviving into Day 2.
Leading the way was Frenchman Thierry Morel followed by Italian Poker Tour winner Marvin Rettenmaier from Germany. Looming ominously for the rest of the field though is Antoine Saout. Last year's WSOP Main Event third place finisher went on a real heater towards the close of play and eventually finished the day fourth in the chip counts. Fortune wasn't with Bertrand 'ElkY' Grospellier though. The biggest name in French poker (with apologies to David Benyamine) busted out just before the close after his AJ was overturned by a very raggy looking A5.Of the 541 starters (it was originally 542 but one silly boy who'd already made it through to Day 2 in the opening flight bought in again on Day 1B!?!), 242 will be back for Day 2. The top 54 will make the money with the min cash set at €7,200. All the survivors will be aiming much higher than that though with the winner set to pocket €433,000 plus a WPT Championship buy-in worth $25,000. The runner up prize isn't too shabby either at €229,000 and an entry into WPT Paris worth €10,000.The actions resumes at 1pm UK time today.
