Victor Sbrissa Leads Going into Day 2 of EPT Grand Final

LAPT Sao Paolo champion Victor Sbrissa is chip leader at the end of Day 1b of the PokerStars and Monte-Carlo®Casino EPT Grand Final today with 224,800.

The 24-year-old from Sao Paolo, one of ten Brazilians competing here, had an emotional victory in his home city just over a week ago when he took down the LAPT Main Event for $250,000, beating a 753-strong field - and a final table that included Team PokerStars Pros Leo Fernandez and Andre Akkari.

Sbrissa is one of 215 players left from the 423 who started Day 1b. Combined with yesterday's 53 survivors, that means 268 are coming back for Day 2.

There were 531 players for this season's EPT Grand Final Main Event. The festival is running from May 6-15 and features 50 events including the €100k Super High Roller, €25k High Roller and first ever €500,000 guaranteed €1,000 Monaco Cup.
