Brian Altman Leads Record-Breaking EPT Prague Main Event After Day 2

Brian Altman finished the day as chip leader with 704,100 with exactly 200 players advancing to Day 3. The American, who currently resides in Canada, won his seat for Prague in a €320 satellite on PokerStars. The 26-year-old has been to several PokerStars Caribbean Adventures, scoring a min-cash this January, but he rarely competes in mainland Europe. His best live result to date was a fifth-place finish in a Borgata tournament last month.

Gustav Nordh is in second place after bagging up 584,000, followed by Omar Lakhdari in third place with 568,000. Lakhdari, the Frenchman, flew in from final tabling the World Poker Tour National Paris event earlier this week. Stephen Graner, who finished sixth out of 7,977 entries in the Millionaire Maker at the World Series of Poker this summer for $273,854, accumulated 558,200 in chips.

The 2014 European Poker Tour Prague Main Event closed registration at the beginning of play today and the final numbers were confirmed with a record-breaking 1,107 players. This was made up of 342 entrants on Day 1a, 752 on Day 1b, and 13 who bought in at the start of Day 2, meaning the record for this event was beaten by exactly 100 entries. Those numbers generated a huge prize pool of €5.3 million, and the champion stands to win €969,000. The runner-up will receive €582,720, with third place set to get €410,190.

A total of 64 countries were represented in the field, with 98 players coming from Russia, just ahead of the Germans who were also strongly represented with 94 participants. The United Kingdom maintained last year's third position with 77, meaning all top three standings were exactly the same as one year ago. The home country was represented by 33 players, and 42 out of the 50 European countries had players in the field — a true testament to the widespread popularity of the EPT in its 11th season.

With close to €1 million for the eventual winner this year, here is a look at how that compares to previous years:

After six 75-minute levels of play, the 600 Day 1 survivors, plus the extra 13 who bought in before Day 2 kicked off, have been reduced to just 200.

One of the first players to fall was Chris Moorman, who had a big stack right up until the end of Day 1b, but was reduced to a sub-20 big blind stack when he ran kings into aces near the close of play. Moorman busted when he opened and then shoved with the {9-Clubs}{9-Spades} over Sergii Baranov’s three-bet with the {4-Spades}{4-Diamonds}, and it was all over when Baranov spiked his four on the flop.

Some of the other big names who failed to make it through the day included reigning WSOP Main Event champion Martin Jacobson and Team PokerStars Pros Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier, Theo Jorgensen, and Marcin Horecki. Also eliminated were Martin Staszko, Kevin MacPhee, Jack Salter, Dermot Blain, and Dimitar Danchev.

Overall though, it was a good day for Team PokerStars Pro. The squad will be represented on Day 3 by Liv Boeree (179,000), Vanessa Selbst (139,000), Eugene Katchalov (116,300), George Danzer (98,700), and Johnny Lodden (56,600). Flying the flag for Team PokerStars Pro Online will be Mickey Petersen (168,000) and Isaac Haxton (66,500).

Some of the other notables who have made it through to Day 3 included Rhys Jones (411,900), Artem Metalidi (357,900), Tamer Kamel (352,900), Simon Ravnsbaek (352,800), Davidi Kitai (342,300), Shannon Shorr (322,200), Mustapha Kanit (322,000), 2013 EPT Prague runner-up Georgios Sotiropoulos (311,800), Thomas Muehlocker (282,100), and Sam Grafton (273,100).

Play resumes tomorrow at noon local time with five 90-minute levels scheduled. The PokerNews Live Reporting team will bring you all the drama of the money bubble as only 159 of the remaining 200 players will be paid. That means there will be a bunch of unlucky players leaving empty handed just shy of a min-cash worth €8,970.

Be sure to join us then, and in the meantime check out the following video with Eugene Katchalov:

Another Huge Pot for Altman in the last hand

• Ниво 14: 1,200-2,400, 300 ante

Serhat Demiroglu defended his small blind against a raise of Brian Altman for 6,000 and then bet the {A-Hearts} {5-Hearts} {K-Diamonds} flop for 7,000. Altmann called and bet 18,000 on the {10-Spades} turn after the action was checked to him. Demiroglu made the call and then led for 30,000 after the {7-Hearts} river.

Altman gave it some thought and then raised to 96,000, which was called rather quickly by Demiroglu with {J-Hearts} {10-Hearts}. Altman turned over {Q-Hearts} {3-Hearts} for the queen-high flush and added even more chips to his already impressive stack.

Salvatore Bonevena Eliminated

Webjoker • Ниво 14: 1,200-2,400, 300 ante

In one of the last hands of the day EPT Prague 2008 Main Event winner Salvatore Bonavena got eliminated. He got his last 74,000 chips in with {K-Diamonds}{K-Hearts} on the {10-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{4-Spades} turn and was up against Rhys Jones' {J-Clubs}{10-Clubs}, Brian Altman folded. The {3-Hearts} on the river did him no good, and just like that the tournament was free of former EPT Prague Main Event winners.

Selbst Clashes with Mattson Again

Webjoker • Ниво 14: 1,200-2,400, 300 ante

Emil Mattson opened to 5,700 from middle position and Vanessa Selbst on the button was the sole caller. Mattson would fire all three straat with 7,000 on {7-Clubs}{K-Hearts}{3-Hearts}, 14,500 on the {6-Clubs} turn, and all in for 53,600 on the {7-Diamonds} river. Selbst called all streets, tanking long before her decision on the river, but had to muck after seeing Mattson's {A-Clubs}{A-Hearts}.

Altman Increases Lead

• Ниво 14: 1,200-2,400, 300 ante

Brian Altman raised to 5,500 and got one caller to see the flop of {A-Diamonds} {2-Clubs} {4-Spades}. The American made a continuation bet of 6,500 and got a call by the sole opponent to head to the {A-Spades} turn. Another bet of 12,000 was called and then Altman put his opponent all in after the {J-Diamonds} river for the last 44,000. The opponent gave it some thought and then called, but somehow couldn't beat the {3-Spades} {3-Hearts} of Altman.
