Roger Hairabedian (Day 2) Leads The Final Table

We're mere moments away from beginning a final table that will crown the third champion of the 2012 World Series of Poker Europe. Roger Hairabedian was able to rise above the field during Day 2 play to claim the top spot among the chip counts. The path to victory will not be easy for Hairabedian, however, as the final table includes such names as Michael Mizrachi, Joe Hachem, and Jason Mercier.

Day 2 began with only 25 players but despite the small size of the field it took some time to whittle down to the final table. Names such as Aubin Cazals, Jan-Peter Jachtmann, and Ran Azor appeared back on the felt for Day 2 but were unable to make the money. Canadian pro Sam Chartier busted on the stone bubble, allowing Vanessa Selbst to come away from this event with a min-cash. When Bruno Fitoussi was eliminated in 10th place, the final table was set.
