Also still in is 2009 PCA third-place finisher Benny Spindler, up and coming French online player Basile Yaiche, 2010 Irish Open champion James Mitchell and EPT winner Joao Barbosa.

On the way to the final 24 we had to say goodbye to a few big names as well, including Brit Laurance Houghton, Humberto Brenes, Roberto Romanello, John Gale, Marvin Rettenmaier, Ana Marquez, Jamie Rosen and Barney Boatman.

EPT London: 40 Players Left, Iacafono New Leader

Kevin Iacafano
Kevin Iacafano now sits atop the chip counts.

We’re nearing the end of the second level of the day here at the EPT London main event and just 40 players are still in it with a shot at the £750,000 first-place prize.

In addition to losing 22 players already this afternoon we have a brand new chip leader in American Kevin Iacofano. He’s followed closely by the UK’s Neil Pearce.

Click here for updated chip counts.

The plan for today calls for play to continue until just 24 players remain, all of whom will return tomorrow with a shot at making Thursday’s final table.

Right now keep reading for a look at the leaderboard and highlights from the afternoon thus far.

Ana Marquez Eliminated

Recent Team PokerStars Pro addition Ana Marquez as been eliminated. Her last hand began with one limper and a shove from Marquez for around 140k. It folded to Hugo Loureiro who called with pocket tens which were ahead of Marquez’s A-8.

The board ran out with no help to the Marquez and she was done.

Rettenmaier Relegated to Rail

Things were looking up for Germany’s Marvin Rettenmaier when he scored a much needed double-up earlier this level. He called all-in when Andries Swart four-bet him preflop and saw he was in good shape with A-8 against A-2.

After that hand Rettenmaier was up to almost 500k, but it wouldn’t last long.

Not long after, he picked up A-K and was more than happy to get it all-in preflop. The only problem was that his Basile Yaiche was holding pocket aces. The bullets proved to be Rettenmaier’s undoing and he’s out.

Among those busted this afternoon were a few notable names
