Welcome back to the Season 10 European Poker Tour London Main Event. What started with 604 players is already down to 107, of which 87 will get paid. That means 20 players will leave empty handed, and we don't expect it to take too long for the money bubble to burst here on Day 3.
Tudor Purice is the man best positioned to make a deep run into the money as he begins the day as chip leader with 628,200 in chips. Others who are sitting on healthy stacks are Ludovic Geilich (436,000), November Niner Mark Newhouse (380,800), Andy Moseley (487,100), and Yngve Steen (576,400).
In addition, three members of the Team PokerStars Pro remain — including Henrique Pinho (150,300), Barry Greenstein (129,300), and The Jorgensen (71,200). Other notables still in the field are Sebastian Blom (the brother of legendary Viktor "Isildur1" Blom), Kitty Kuo (266,000), Maximilian Senft (251,400), Sam Greenwood (248,800), Paul VOlpe (217,200), Jeff Rossiter (212,800), David "Devilfish" Ulliott (210,000), Shannon Shorr (202,200), Dan Smith (179,300), Kyle Julius (157,900), Timothy Adams (151,700), Daniel Weinman (150,100), Jan Sjavik (143,700) and Tom Middleton (141,100).
If you recall, Middleton won the EPT10 Barcelona Main Event last month. Could he become the first player to win two EPT Main Event titles (and back-to-back titles for that matter)? Only time will tell.
Action is set to kick off at Noon local time, which is less than an hour from now. Today the levels will be 90 minutes, and the plan is to play five of them. Be sure to stick around as we bring you up-to-the-minute updates straight from the floor.
