Day 1b of the 2016 EPT Dublin Main Event wrapped yesterday with a massive influx of 442 players.

Combined with the 147 players from Day 1a and several early registrations for today the final player count of 605 players made for an overall prize pool of €2,934,250.

The chip lead heading into Day 2 belongs to Gilles Bernies with 189,600 but Mike McDonald (162,400), Adrien Mateos (128,800), Anthony Zinno (124,800) and Fabrice Soulier (123,400) are also in the discussion.
