The Deauville EPT Day 2 began with 248 players in contention, of which 47 were at the end, all prize after breaking the bubble. Only 64 were cashed.
There have been many professional players who have fallen by the wayside: Vanessa Rousso, Jesper Hougard, Juha Helppi, Gabriel Nassif, Joao Barbosa, Ludovic Lacay, Surinder Sunar, Ricardo Sousa …
A striking role of Barbosa, who is literally spectacular in this season’s EPT (5 boxes in 7 stops to Portuguese!, One of which was victory in Warsaw) and is emerging as one of the biggest names in the circuit for this year.
Dave “Devilfish” Ulliott no longer leads the standings but still alive in the tournament.
The clear leader is currently Moritz Kranich, with 517,500 points.
