EPT Prague Day 2 Main Event: 189 Players To Fight over Record-Breaking Prize Pool

Second day of the €5300-buyin main event concludes.

Day 2 of the EPT Prague Main Event is in the books. 189 players managed to not spew off their stacks and will return for day 3 tomorrow.

In total, 1007 players signed up to the event, making for a huge prize-pool of €4,883,950 and a first place prize of €889,000—thought to be the largest in EPT Prague history.

Chip leader going into the third of six days is Lebanese pro Walid Bou Habib, who sits at #181 on the GPI rankings with over $1.1m in lifetime cashes.

Other big name players in the top 10 include Jonathan Little with the second largest stack, online grinder Ka Kwan Lau and November Niner Amir Lehavot.

Also in contention is Ana Marquez, pictured above, and PokerStars pro Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier. Jonathan Duhamel and Eugene Katchalov are still alive, but with smaller stacks.

The money bubble is set at 127 for a min-cash of €8600.
