The final table has now been reached at the European Poker Tour London Super High Roller after just under ten levels of play on Day 2 of the event. There had been 52 entries on Day 1, though 14 of those were actually re-entries and that was added to by another five registrations at the start of Day 2.
That brought a figure of 57 total registrations throughout the event and gave a total prize pool for the event of £2,736.866 to be shared amongst the eight players that finished on the final table.
Day 2 started with a few players that had only just bought in with their first bullets, with Patrik Antonius and Viktor “Isildur1” Blom being the most recognisable. The latter eventually fell but the former actually managed to claim a place on the final table.
He joins chip leader Martin Finger, who amassed 4,740,000 chips on Day 2, giving him double the chips of his closest challenger in start of the day chip leader Johannes Strassmann. Others on the final table include Bill Perkins, David Benefield, Timothy Adams and Tobias Reinkenmeier.

Super High Roller events attract only the very best poker players so it is a certainty that those who fall will all be big names. We lost Daniel Negreanu, Jason Mercier, Dan Shak, John Juanda,Sam Trickett and final table bubble boy Mike McDonald.
Busted in 14th my TT vs Ole’s JJ for a 1.4 million pot. Played well and am fine with the last hand.
