WSOP Europe Event #2: Field Already Halved
September 16, 2021
The second event of the 2010 World Series of Poker Europe, the ₤5,250 buy-in, Pot-Limit Omaha, has already completed it’s first day of competition, bringing the total starting field of 120 entrants down to a more manageable 49. 

That number of entrants, for the only non-Hold ‘em event at this year’s European series, created a total prize pool of ₤600,000- or about $940,000 USD- allowing for the top 18 finishers to get a piece, and creating a first place cut worth ₤159,000- plus a highly coveted WSOP bracelet- to go to the eventual champion.

Who that champion will be is a matter still up for debate, but who it wont be has become much clearer throughout the first starting day as top pros like Phil Ivey, Andy Bloch, Tom “durrrr” Dwan, Phil Hellmuth, Jason Mercier, Sorel Mizzi and Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi, were all pushed to the rail during the day’s fevered action.

Players still in contention on the other hand, set to return tomorrow at 3 p.m. London time for Day 2, include PokerRoad’s Barry Greenstein, Jeff Madsen, Scott Fischman, Jeff Lisandro, Chad Brown, Hoyt Corkins and 2010 WSOP Europe Event #1 winner Phil “The Unabomber” Laak.
