Monday night in Poland saw Day 2 of the third iteration of this spectacular EPT event unfold, with 109 players returning from the first days of play to continue the struggle over another seven or so levels of excitement.
Check out our interview with Mattern here.
Advancing into a Polish zloty payday are Mattern, Minieri, Roland De Wolfe, Ludovic Lacay, Mercier and 2007 Irish Open champ Marty Smyth. Action will resume at 2 p.m. CET and continue until only eight players are left standing and we've got our final table.
Last season the penultimate day of play took barely two hours to complete, and while we probably won't break that record this time around, history has shown this to be a relatively insane tournament, so grab your seat early and hang on tight as PokerListings.com brings you more from the EPT in Warsaw.
