Akin Tuna again finished with the chip lead at the close of the day in €10,300 No-Limit Hold'em at the PokerStars European Poker Tour Prague, but this time he's considerably closer to the prize as only five players still have a pulse out of the 38 total entries.

Tuna bagged 572,000 at the close of 10 levels of play, and he'll be joined by Davidi Kitai (490,000), Daniel Dvoress (396,000), Ognyan Dimov (272,000) and fellow Turkish grinder Orpen Kisacikoglu (150,000) on Day 3.

While Tuna started the day with the lead and ended right back there, it was anything but smooth sailing for him as he experienced plenty of peaks and valleys while a handful of other players ascended to the top of the counts at various times.

Most notably, Dvoress spent a significant portion of the day as the leader, both at some early stages and later ones. He amassed over 600,000 after busting both Jan Schwippert and Ivan Deyra in two of the final three unpaid places, including the latter in seventh on the stone bubble.

Both of those players fell to dominating hands held by the Canadian, but Tuna put Dvoress in the dominated spot right after that when he four-bet queens and called Dvoress' five-bet ship, fading a pocket pair of nines to double past his opponent.

A little after that, in a slow final level to end Day 2, Thomas Boivin finished as the only player busted but in the money when he squeeze shoved pocket queens but ran into the flatted pocket aces held by Dimov.

Some of those who busted out of the money included Steve O'Dwyer, Sam Greenwood, Sam Grafton, Juha Helppi and Ryan Riess.

The last five runners are scheduled to return at 12:30 p.m. local time on Sunday, at which point they'll play down to a winner who will claim €125,330. Find out who that player will be by coming right back to PokerNews to follow the live updates.

Thomas Boivin Eliminated in 6th Place (€25,800)

Level 17 : 4,000-8,000, 8,000 ante

Orpen Kisacikoglu opened for 16,000 under the gun and got a call from Ognyan Dimov on his left. Thomas Boivin then jammed for about 140,000, and action folded back to Dimov, who snap-called with {a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}. It was {q-Clubs}{q-Hearts} for Boivin and the {8-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{8-Clubs} brought him no salvation.

Dvoress Eliminates Deyra on Bubble

Level 16 : 3,000-6,000, 6,000 ante

Ivan Deyra defended big blind from Daniel Dvoress and then shoved about 40,000 in on the {8-Clubs}{4-Spades}{k-Spades} flop. Dvoress quickly called with {k-Clubs}{8-Spades} for two pair, and he was way ahead against {7-Clubs}{4-Clubs}. The {7-Spades} turn improved Deyra to two pair but it wasn't enough and he busted on the bubble when the {9-Clubs} sewed it up on the river for Dvoress.
