EPT9 Prague: Grinders left in Eureka High Roller

Day 2 of the Eureka High Roller starts today with 25 players remaining and just 24 getting paid. Among those trying to dodge the bubble - and spin up to the €89,200 first place prize - are EPT Vilamoura winner Toby Lewis, his heads-up combatant Martin Jacobson, EPT final tablists Jan Bendik, Dmitry Vitkind and Praytush Buddiga, and WSOP bracelet winner Craig McCorkell (who finished 9th at the EPT Grand Final in 2010).

The overnight chip leader is Guillaume Rivet, a 22-year-old French Canadian who leads the field with 304,400. Most at risk is former WSOP runner-up Martin Staszko who is sitting on just 10,100. Play resumes shortly.
