The second day of the 2016 PokerStars and Monte-Carlo® Casino EPT Grand Final was filled with excitement, and Pierre Calamusa bagged up the overnight chip lead with 580,800 in chips.

Early on Day 2, the tournament saw Leo Margets, Gaelle Baumann, Felipe Ramos, Igor Kurganov, Salman Behbehani, and Niall Farrell hit the rail. Team PokerStars players Liv Boeree, Yaxi Zhu, Jason Mercier, Betrand "ElkY" Grospellier, Naoya Kihara, Lex Veldhuis, and Celina Lin were all knocked out on Day 2 as well, but there are still plenty of players left representing the red spade.

PokerStars team pro Vanessa Selbst had a stellar start to her day, but in the end she dropped some to finish with 206,700. EPT Deauville winner and fellow PokerStars team pro Jake Cody bagged up 150,100, while Team Online member Randy Lew and SportsStar Fatima Moreira de Melo are among the biggest remaining stacks in the tournament.

Lew chipped up consistently on Day 2 to end on 385,800, and the same could be said for Moreira de Melo. The Dutch three-time Olympic medalist bagged up 357,200, as she looks for her second main event cash this season, following a 240th-place finish in Barcelona.

The No. 3 player on poker's all-time money list, Erik Seidel, with $26.5 million in career live tournament earnings, had a very strong day. Seidel stayed under the radar for most of play on Day 2, but bagged up 368,400.

Former EPT champion Aaron Gustavson (374,400) and Davidi Kitai (113,000) are still in the hunt, along with Dimitar Danchev and other big stacks like Marcin Chmielewski (493,500), Erwann Pecheux (413,800), Albert Daher (375,100), and Matthew Davenport (349,100).

Once registration closed, the 12th EPT season's finale drew a total of 1,098 participants, creating a prize pool worth €5,325,300 that will pay the top 159 places. First prize is worth €961,800, and with 205 players remaining the money will be reached on Day 3, as another five levels are slated to be played.

Play will recommence on Tuesday at 12 p.m. noon and PokerNews.com will be right there with all the coverage.

Five More Hands

[user20283] • Level 14: 1,200-2,400, 300 ante

The clock has been stopped and just five more hands are left to be played.

Huo's Aces Hold Up

[user20283] • Level 14: 1,200-2,400, 300 ante

Jinfeng Huo just found herself all in for 107,200 and up against Grzegorz Grochulski in the following showdown.

Huo: {A-Diamonds}{A-Hearts}
Grochulski: {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}

The board ran out {A-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{6-Spades} and Huo celebrated a big double up right before the end of the day.

Hoefer Enforces Fold

zedmaster84 • Level 14: 1,200-2,400, 300 ante

Jens Hoefer check-raised a flop of {7-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{2-Clubs} flop out of the blinds and then shoved the {4-Diamonds} turn for around 24,500 to enforce a fold from his opponent. The German, who won an Aussie Millions ring at a Side Event this year and the Little One for One Drop in Las Vegas last year, is still below average but in it to win it.

Fellow German and former EPT Prague finalist Fabio Sperling is doing much better with more than twice the average stack.

Gueneau Doubles

zedmaster84 • Level 14: 1,200-2,400, 300 ante

"Nice flop. Nice hand," Simon Deadman said after Vincent Gueneau had just doubled with {Q-Spades}{J-Hearts} against the {K-Spades}{Q-Diamonds} of Apostolos Bechrakis for some 20 big blinds. The board came {A-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{J-Spades}.

The biggest stack at the table currently belongs to Dominykas Karmazinas in the last seat, but he faces very experienced competition in Deadman and Tobias Reinkemeier.

Danchev Doubles Through Karnapp

zedmaster84 • Level 14: 1,200-2,400, 300 ante

The TV crew rushed to the table of Pierre Calamusa and Dimitar Danchev because the former is among the biggest stacks and the latter was just all in for around 40,000 chips on a three-way flop of {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs}{5-Spades}. A third player was in the hand as well and the full betting is unknown, but Danchev put himself at risk with the {Q-Clubs}{5-Clubs}.

Knut Karnapp looked him up with {A-Diamonds}{J-Spades} and Danchev got there thanks to the {2-Clubs} turn, making the {3-Spades} river a formality.
