ISPT Day 2b – Linton Leads Second Wembley Flight

wembley stadiumThe second flight to be played at the glorious Wembley Stadium was completed yesterday as another 442 players had to be cut down in size before joining with the survivors of Day 2a into Day 3 of the ISPT Wembley.

That means we now have a total figure of entries standing at 761 for the live portion of this event, though only 267 of those players yesterday survived.

Pete Linton was the player that managed to get through the day in the best shape as he finds himself comfortably top of the chip counts with a very healthy 306,000. Ade Bayo is his closest challenger currently from Day 2b with 250,00, whilst Linton does not actually hold the overall lead in the event as that accolade is held by the chip leader from Day 2a Alban Juan with 367,500.

Also in the top ten are Ross Loggie, Ole Schemion and Gareth Holt, with all of them looking to close that gap when the action kicks off again.

Other players that are still in the hunt include Michael Mizrachi, Toby Lewis, Liz Lieu, Peter Eastgate and the ever talkative Tony G. Most of these players bought back in on Day 2b after failing to make it through from Day 2a, so it so far seems to be a good decision by all of them.

The tougher test is still to come though as each of these notable players will now have to try and get deep enough to secure some cash.

Other names didn’t even get into Day 3 such as former WSOP Main Event final tablist Sam Holden, Jeff Sarwer and a man that fired two bullets but still couldn’t get through Michael Turenic. It just goes to show that with an event this size, it doesn’t matter who you are, if the cards aren’t going for you, there is not much you can do.

The Day 2b Top Ten!

Pete Linton – 306,000

Ade Bayo – 250,000

James Clutton – 238,700

Manuel Garcia Gonzalez – 229,300

Ross Loggie – 214,500

Ole Schemion – 196,700

Chris O’Donnell – 193,600

Gareth Holt – 183,600

Antoine Saout – 151,500

Day 3 will again be starting at 12pm today UK time and will see the field have to take on the challenge of making it through another day and a step closer to the paying positions. We will be following this event until we have a winner, so if you are looking for regular updates, you know where to come.
