€8,500 Cannes Main Event

Day 2 is a Wrap

Unofficial Overnight Chip Leader - Patrice Albert Sitbon
After almost 11 long hours of play, we've reached the end of Day 2. Tournament staff opted to stop the clock and call it a night with 48 players remaining, each of them now in the money.

Day 3 is scheduled to begin at 3:00 p.m. local time (9:00 a.m. EST) at which time the remaining players will begin their quests to reach the final table. A million-Euro first prize is up for grabs ($1,426,645 USD) and each of the 48 Day 2 survivors are hungry for it. Among said survivors are notable PokerBattle representatives Michael and Robert Mizrachi, Scotty Nguyen, Noah Schwartz and Patryk Hildebranski.

The Partouche staff have informed us that the official end of Day 2 chip counts will be released in approximately forty five minutes, so we'll post them as soon as they're made available.

Join us tomorrow afternoon (or morning, depending on where you are in the world) for our continued coverage of the 2008 Partouche Poker Tour Cannes Main Event, live from the Palm Beach Club.

Until then, good night and good luck!
