Can Tosques Go Back-to-Back? Returns on Day 3 Second in Chips

A total of 545 players entered the 2019 World Poker Tour DeepStacks Marrakech Main Event and now just 12 players remain in with a chance of 1,100,000 MAD and the chance of being crowned the latest WPTDS Europe champion.

While Pedro Ingles might top the chip counts almost 600,000 chips ahead of his nearest rival, it is the identity of that player sitting in second on the leaderboard that everyone will be paying attention to.

Last year Francois Tosques took home 1,000,000 MAD (€91,411) after defeating Moroccan Jaouad Abida heads-up to top a 431-player field.

Now he's back and in a strong position not only to make the final table, but to match his performance from twelve months ago.

Other players still in contention include Daniel El Keslassy, who is the only Moroccan left in the field and is the only other player over two million in chips behind Tosques and Ingles. Sitting second from bottom in the chip counts is another notable in the shape of Bruno Fitoussi who will hope to have a strong start to spring back into contention.

Here is the seating draw of the final two tables ahead of Day 3:
