A total of 531 players returned for Day2 of the €5,300 Main Event and the field was reduced to 259 by the end of the day. All of the remaining players are guaranteed for a €8,900 payday, but the €1,611,500 first prize promises a life-changing opportunity for most players so no one will rest on their laurels.

EPT Berlin Main Event champion, Ben Wilinofsky is leading the field with an enormous 850,000 stack. Ben has been on the top of the leaderboard since Day1a, bagging the biggest stack back then too. David Petrzelka awaits Day3 in the second position, he will return to the tables with 771,000 chips. Almedin Imsirovic took the third place accumulating 723,000, while Michal Lubas (712,000) and Tony Broekhof (703,500) aren't far behind either.

Other notables with healthy stacks are Dominik Panka (603,000), Ben Heath (476,000), Shaun Deeb (363,000), Patrik Antonius (310,000), Niall Farrell (220,000), and Seth Davies (198,000). Viktor "Isildur1" Blom will also return for Day3. Despite his short stack of only 50,000, the legendary Swede is always a force to reckon with.

An epic picture was shot during Day2 when Blom and Antonius got seated next to each other. True poker fans clearly remember the crazy nosebleed action at the online tables between the two, especially a PLO hand which is the biggest ever online pot in the history.
