European Poker Tour London: Day 1B

The European Poker Tour set in London is one of the most prestigious stopovers of the series, and day 1B saw a total of 280 players on its tables combined with the survivors from day 1A.

Day 1B

As one of the biggest series in the poker world is underway, a lot of prominent faces in the industry have gathered up to participate in the £5,000 buy in main event. Day 1b attracted a total of 280 players to come in and join the fray, including Doyle Brunson, Barry Greenstein, Nick Binger, and Robert Romanello, former EPT Champion, who all made it on to the next day. Unfortunately for John Duthie, David Ulliott, Xuan Liu, and Phil Collins, they did not make it to day 2. Of course, a number of Team PokerStars members were also in at day 1b including Daniel Negreany, Vanessa Russo, Joe Hachem, and Vanessa Selbst. Other prominent faces of the game also went in including Will Failla, who’s had a pretty good run with several tournaments pretty recently, Jean-Robert Bellande, Justin Bonomo, and Annette Obrestad.

John Gale Climbs Up

Former WPT Champion John Gale managed to climb up in terms of chip count. It was Dan Shak who gave Gale a chunk of chips when they went against each other during a hand. Gale managed to get 10-8, and got a straight with it right after the flop came about. Even though Dan already had a pocket of 6’s, and the cards on the board gave out another 6, there weren’t any improvements to be found and he was stuck with a three of a kind. Gale, was able to take his chips past the 100k thanks to the match.

On to the Next Day

At the end of the day, it was John Gale who climbed up the ranks of the leader board with the chip lead. Of course, he’s not at all guaranteed to win as there are still a number of formidable opponents around for him. One of which is Jason Mercier, who has done impressively well throughout the day. Sam Stein is also around and he’s done pretty well so far, considering Gale doesn’t really have a huge lead over the rest. Things are still to be decided on the next days of the tournament, on who will be the player to top the rest in this year’s EPT London.
