The final event of the hectic London poker festival calendar looks set to be the biggest, again. EPT London is looking set to break its own UK attendance record today following 339 players sitting down for day 1a. The record is 730 so day 1b has a very realistic aim of 392 players to break its own record today.
Online qualifier Soheb Porbandarwala finished the day top of the leader board with 218,600 but a further 145 players survived the early action to make it to day 2. Lots of big names left in the fieldn including Greg Raymer, John Juanda and Allen Cunningham.
We said the smart money was on a Brit and there are plenty of them still in contention including Jamie Burland, Rumit Somaiya, Nicky Evans, Robin Keston, Jake Cody, Teddy Sheringham, Ben Roberts and Neil Channing. Proving our point even more, EPT Vilamoura champion Toby Lewis continues his hot streak by shipping the £1,000 side event last night for £55,200.
There is only one place for all the action from day 1b and to see if PokerStars break their own UK attendance record, and that is via our EPT Live Updates.
Today is the last day to qualify for the current $10,000 Sunday Million Freeroll on PokerStars – don’t worry if you miss it as we have just announced three more coming soon and this time they are worth $15,000.
