They were 316 players still in contention for the title at the start of the day 2,but when the day concluded only 115 were left. One of those was Victoria Coren, the first woman to win an EPT. Now eight years after her historic EPT London Main Event win, she has the chance to become the first to ever win two EPT titles.
When day 3 starts tomorrow Coren will be the last woman in the field as both Liv Boeree, Gaëlle Baumann and Vanessa Selbst busted on day two. Gaëlle Baumann, who bubbled the WSOP Main Event final table two years ago, did not get the chance to enter a final table this time. Unfortunately for Baumann her aces got cracked by kings in a big pot for three time chips average. Shortly after she was out:
Perdu AA < KK preflop pour un pot de 300k, moyenne 100k. Bust 🙁 #EPTSanRemo

On Coren’s way to day 3 she busted Kevin MacPhee when her AK won a flip against his QQ. She will return tomorrow with a stack of 162,400, a bit over the average 145,000. Lukas Berglund from Sweden is chip leader with massive 700,600.
