2012. October 02.
The World Series of Poker Europe (WSOPE) €10,450 Main Event is well underway, with Day 2 being finished and 77 players left, including quite a number of international pros.
A total of 420 players entered the WSOPE 2012 €10,450 Main Event, amassing a prize pool of €4,032,000. 230 of them made it to Day 2 with the chiplead of Day 1A top finisher Michael Mizrachi (234,850), followed by Day 2A best Bertrand 'ElkY' Grospellier (190,400) and JC Alvarado (180,675).

Mizrachi played hyper-aggressively with huge swings throughout Day 2, resulting in his elimination on Level 11 (200/800/1,600) with KT against A4 on a neutral board. He was accompanied at the rail by the likes of Vanessa Rousso, Joe Hachem, Isaac Haxton, Noah Schwartz, Faraz Jaka, Andrew Lichtenberger, Dan Shak, Steve O'Dwyer, Alex Kravchenko, Scotty Nguyen, Phil Ivey, Tyler Bonkowski, Kevin MacPhee, Greg Merson, Roberto Romanello, David Baker, Jonathan Duhamel, Antonio Esfandiari, Dominik Nitsche, Konstantin Puchkov, Ashton Griffin and John Monnette.

Despite the list of renowned pros dropping out, the remaining field of 77 players remains strong enough with 12-times WSOP champion Phil Hellmuth (364,900), Joseph Cheong (328,400) and 'ElkY' (326,700) in the top 10, accompanied by Daniel Negreanu (290,000), Dan Smith (274,300) and WSOP Main Event October Nine chipleader Jesse Sylvia (209,000), who is about to repeat Ivan Demidov’s 2008 feature of making it to the final table of both the WSOP and the WSOPE main events.
