Mark Newhouse: Hunting final table again.

A fascinating group of 107 players remain after Day 2 of the EPT London main event including WCOOP leaderboard winner Yngve Steen, November Niner Mark Newhouse and Sebastian Blom.

Tudor Purice holds down the chip lead at 628,200 but right behind him are an array of notables ready to reel him in.

Second overall is Norwegian Yngve Steen, who recently topped a massive field of runners for the overall WCOOP leaderboard title.

November Niner Mark Newhouse also made his way into the top six, bagging up 380,800 to end the night and position himself for another final-table run.

The "other" Blom brother - Sebastian - took some inspiration from his sibling Viktor to build a top 15 stack of 271,000.

Volpe, Rossiter, Shorr, Smith All Move Forward

As expected at a star-studded event like EPT London the field lined up behind Purice, Steen et al is littered with top talent. Sam Greenwood, Nicolau Villa-Lobos, Thomas Muhlocker, Paul Volpe, Jeff Rossiter and Dave "Devilfish" Ulliott all cracked the Top 30.
