WPT National London Main Event Reaches Day 3: Elior Sion Leads With 27 Left

WPT National London

Day 2 of the World Poker Tour National Main Event took place on Sunday afternoon and saw 115 players reduced to just 27, each of them now guaranteed to take home some prize money for their efforts.

Leading the way is young Briton Elior Sion and his 573,500 chips. Sion been on a tear of late, first cashing in the £2000 Pot Limit Omaha turbo where he finished second for £12,220 and then fifth in the £10,000 8-Game for a career best £32,000; both tournament taking place at the recent EPT London festival.

Hot on Sion’s heels are a trio of players who each have more than 400,000 chips. American Brandon Hall (515,500), German Sebastian Muller (477,500) and Emma Tolley (418,500). The latter got very lucky when she committed her stack in a three way all-in pot on a {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs}{Q-Hearts} flop with {A-Spades}{Q-Clubs}. She got lucky because Jonathan Slater held {J-Hearts}{10-Hearts} for a flopped straight and William Champion held some of her outs with his {K-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}. The {5-Spades} turn kept Slater ahead but the river was the {Q-Spades} and Tolley reaped in the gargantuan pot.

Other players to look out for include Danny Blair (198,500), Tudor Purice (170,500), Kevin Williams (162,000), Benjamin Pollak (116,000) and Manig Loeser (103,500).

Each of the 27 players who will return to their seats at 14:00GMT on Monday will do so safe in the knowledge they have locked up at least £3,000 in this tournament. By the time the curtain comes down on the Day 3’s proceedings the final table of eight will be set and the guaranteed take home pay will be at least £10,000.
