Day 2 of the second event at this year’s World Series Of Poker Europe saw the remaining 85 players that had survived either of the opening day flights, re-converge to the tables before being whittled down to just the final table of nine.
The final table was supposed to be reached within ten levels maximum, but it actually occurred around half way through the eighth level. The player that will go into that final table with the biggest chip stack is Henrik Johansson after he bagged up 587,500 chips, a lot of which were from the final table bubble boy Marco Conti whom he eliminated at in the very last hand of the day.
Others that will be competing for the title include Daniel Laidlaw, Daniel Weinman and Serge Ekert, meaning it should be a pretty tough final table out there today.
3/9 with 357k going into WSOPE event 2 FT tomorrow. Blinds 3k/6k(500).

Day 2 saw the money bubble reached and passed as only the top 72 players would be going home with some form of profit on their investment in themselves. Among those that were eliminated but cashed were Chris Klodnicki, Dominik Nitsche, Scott Clements, Jacob Balsiger, Jake Schwartz and Chino Rheem.

The remaining players will again return to the tables for one final time today in order to fight it out for the WSOPE bracelet that is on offer and of course the top payout.
