After eight hours of play today the field of 103 who started Day 2 made it down to 24 players who moved forward to Day 3 and a had their shot at cashing here at IPT Malta.
The Italian player Marco Bognanni began the day the chip leader 546,200 chips, followed by Nicola D'Arrigo with 285,000. Before it was time for a final table, that top spot had gone to Joeri Rick Van Der Sman who leads the final table today.
Sadly, the day's play had its share of causalities with 79 hitting the rail along with PokerStars Team Pros Pier Paolo Fabretti and Luca Pagano.
With a €254,140 prize pool and a €82,000 first prize, the show must go on.
