A surprising low turnout for day 1a of the first ever World Poker Tour London yesterday, with just 72 runners in total. That number is expected to rise massively today as the fallout from EPT Vilamoura starts to make their way the Palm Beach Casino.
Although the numbers were few, the quality was immense with names like Phil Ivey, Erik Seidel, Luke Schwartz and Praz Bansi all in attendance. 36 players from day 1a will return and right now the man to catch is Seidel:
