Today marks the start of Day 2 of the record-breaking WPT Prague Main Event and amongst the 218 surviving players from Day 1a and Day 1b are a total of eight British players and they will be lead into battle by Martins Adeniya who starts the day with 205,000 chips, enough to place him sixth overall.

Adeniya seemed to be hovering around his starting stack for most of Day 1b but went on a late surge to not only find himself as the deepest stacked Brit but to also put him in contention for yet another deep run in a major tournament. At time of writing Adeniya has $382,980 in live tournament winning but that figure could quite easily be double, triple or even more if it was not for bad luck in the business end of some tournaments. Hopefully the talented Brit will have a little extra run-good in this event and bring home the bacon for the UK.

He actually has quite a tough starting table over on Table 10, as it is the home to Vitaly Lunkin, Michael Tureniec and his fellow Brit Scott O'Reilly.

Also making it through from Day 1b were Daniel Carter (143,200 chips) Neil Lusmer (61,100), Anthony Cartwright (22,700), Scott O'Reilly (21,300) and Jon Larson (15,700) and they will be joined by James Akenhead (88,700) and John Eames (44,300) who both made it through Day 1a on Thursday.

All seven of our heroes will take their seats in the King's Casino at 1400CET and here's too all seven making it safely through to Day 3! Best of luck boys. God save out gracious Queen.....
