Day 2b becomes history at Wembley Stadium in 2013 ISPT

Share this

The International Stadiums Poker Tour (ISPT) finished Day 2b with Pete Linton (a Dusk Til Dawn regular) holding the chip lead at 306,000. Linton holds over 300,000 after nine levels of play but he isn't the overall chip leader.

Yesterday's starters numbered 442 (Day 2a) and Day 2b brought 319 to the lawn at Wembley Stadium. The total field of 761 players means a massive overlay is in store to give first place the guaranteed €1 million.

Michael 'The Grinder' Mizrachi's stack jumped up after he flopped a set of deuces against an over pair early on and he built it up to 150,000 but then it all went downhill. The ISPT ambassador's stack fell to 35,000 and then he had the misfortune of trying chop off Aces with his Kings. He was out of action.

Fellow ambassadorette, Liz Lieu, managed to grow her stack steadily throughout the day and had some tough tables to get through — with Linton, and a bit later with former WSOP Main Event finalist James Akenhead. Lieu bagged up 70,200 for the night and Akenhead is going into Day 3 with 44,700 after having been over the six-figure mark earlier in the day.

Former Main Event winner Peter Eastgate, EPT Champion Toby Lewis, and Mr. Entertainment himself -- Tony G -- were all eliminated on Day 2a but re-entered the action and lived to move on to Day 3. Former November Niner Sam Holden fell to set-over-set and Jeff Sarwer and Michael Tureniec are no longer in action.

The chip lead going into Day 3 is held by Juen Alban and Day 3 is the last day the action will be on Wembley's turf. When the cards go in the air on Monday, the tournament will be played in the Bobby Moore suite which is named after England's most famous footballer. Moore was captain when the only World Cup won by England was captured back in 1966.

The inflatable tents set up on the Wembley Pitch for Day 2b create a pop-up poker village.
