Fatima de Melo returned with a stack of 91,600, while Adrienne Rowsome had 36,400. Other women left in the field included Norway’s Katja Spillum Svendsen (62,600) and Portugese player Isabel Carvalho (29,200).

Adrienne Rowsome had a great day. In the first level she doubled up with aces vs. David Wood’s pair of tens, which saw her stack grow to 75,000, and at the first break of the day she was suddenly sitting with 215,000 in chips. The poker mama from Canada was able to hold on to her stack and she ended the day in top 15 with 227,000.

Fatima Moreira de Melo also survived the day, and she will return tomorrow with 58,500. The former Dutch field hockey player has proved she is a fighter, and even if she is a bit short stacked she will definitely do her best to surpass her second place finish from last year’s event.

Unfortunately neither Katja Spillum Svendsen nor Isabel Carvalho are among the 40 players, who will return for day 3, and they both finished out of the money.
