Wang Starts with a Bang

Niveau 11 : 1,000/2,000, 300 ante

Gleb Tremzin, Chance Kornuth and Bryn Kenney were the other three new entries for Day 2 with Kornuth and Kenney firing their second bullet. For the latter, it would only last some 15 minutes though and he was just eliminated by Yang Wang.

Wang opened to 4,500 from the hijack, Mark Teltscher flat-called from one seat over and then Kenney pushed starting stack from the button. Wang reshoved and Teltscher folded quickly.

Kenney: {A-Spades}{K-Diamonds}
Wang: {9-Hearts}{9-Spades}

The door card was the {A-Hearts} but it was soon followed by the {9-Clubs}, letting Wang jump out of his chair with a loud "yessss". The rest of the board ran out {Q-Spades}{7-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} and Kenney was drawing dead on the turn already, quietly leaving the tournament area.

Spin & Go

Niveau 11 : 1,000/2,000, 300 ante

Anthony Spinella is off to a hot start, picking on table boss David Dayan in just the first few hands.

Spinella called a 12,000-chip bet from Dayan in position on an {a-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} flop, then another 13,000 on the {5-Hearts} turn.

But when Dayan led for 20,000 on the {9-Hearts} four-flushing river, Spinella sprung into action, raising to 66,000. Dayan folded.

Mercier Flushed Out

Jason Mercier
Jason Mercier

Team PokerStars Pro Jason Mercier is hitting the showers early.

He ran pocket jacks into Alexandros Kolonias' {a-Hearts}{j-Hearts} preflop, with Kolonias flushing Mercier's €25,750 High Roller dreams down the toilet.

Kolonias now has a threatening stack as a result and the newly registered Daniel Cates has taken the seat vacated by Mercier.

Schemion First Casualty

Niveau 11 : 1,000/2,000, 300 ante

Ole Schemion was spotted walking out of the tournament area and he won't be making a miracle comeback this time. Starting the day with just 10 big blinds, he open-shoved the small blind and "David (Yan) woke up with tens." Asked what he had, Schemion just smiled and said "not much."

Monte Carlo
Monte Carlo

The 2016 PokerStars and Monte-Carlo® Casino EPT Grand Final €25,750 High Roller is already a record breaker, and registration remains open until the start of Day 2, at 12:30 p.m. local time today.

The tournament has already seen 220 entries, beating the record set last year when the UK's Charlie Carrel beat a field of 215. So far, this year's field includes 173 unique players, 47 of whom have taken advantage of the optional single re-entry.

After 10 levels of play Wednesday, EPT12 Malta champion Niall Farrell took the chip lead among 95 survivors.

He bagged up 311,200, just a few days removed from finishing runner-up in the €1,100 FPS Main Event for €127,900.

Enrico Coppola is the only other player who will start Day 2 with over 300,000 in chips, but Saar Wilf (288,000), Dong Zhao (278,900), David Dayan (272,900), Dan Smith (272,500) and Ivan Luca (271,300) are all within striking distance

There are also four Team PokerStars Pros still in it, including Daniel Negreanu (136,700), Liv Boeree (71,400), Jason Mercier (54,900), and Andre Akkari (170,000).

Record breaking numbers mean there will be big money on the line as the field plays through 11 more levels today. The PokerNews Live Reporting Team will be here throughout, so get that F5 finger ready, and enjoy Day 2 of the 2016 PokerStars and Monte-Carlo® Casino EPT Grand Final €25,750 High Roller coming right at you.
