WPT Prague Main Event Day 2 – McLaughlin Leading

WSOP chips

On a frantic night in Prague where one title has already been won on the EPT and another very close to being so, the World Poker Tour Prague also saw its event see the field get reduced down to just 64, meaning that the business end of proceedings is fast approaching.

Once Day 2 saw the end of proceedings it was Marc McLaughlin that headed the field with a stack of 410,800. There is not too much in it though as Kara Scott is having an excellent event and is sitting in second place with 375,100.

Further back in the field are the likes of Roger Hairebedian, Roberto Romanello, Jason Duval, Vinny Pahuja, Yann Dion, Kevin MacPhee and Benjamin Pollak ensuring that we still have plenty of notable names going into Day 3.

Among the players that were sent home during Day 2 were Seth Berger, Sergio Aido, Shannon Shorr, Paul Volpe, Paul Tedeschi, Will Failla, Steve O’Dwyer, Fabrice Soulier, Ana Marquez, Marvin Rettenmaier, Liv Boeree and Jonathan Duhamel, with each of them all now planning on getting home to their friends and family for the festive period.

The next big events will not be coming until January, meaning they can all look back on 2013 and see where they could have perhaps done better.

Day 3 will now see those survivors attempting to progress even further in this event and hopefully get through the bubble period and into the money. That bubble will be burst there are just 36 of the 64 starting players left.
