With the end of Day 1B of the World Series of Poker Europe, 48 players were left standing (or sitting perhaps).

The top ten chip stacks looked like this as of Saturday night:

Adam Junglen - 84,200 - US poker player has accumulated $308,772 so far in career live poker tournament earnings.

Daniel Nutt - 74,500

Remy Biechel - 65,500

James Akenhead - 58,800 - London, United Kingdom. Akenhead started playing poker two years ago and has 3 first place finishes under his belt. He has amassed $615,874 in live tournament play over this time period.

Costas Artemi - 57,300

Salim Ghozali - 52,700

Phil Laak - 50,000 - The most well known of the poker players in the top 10. Phil Laak is probably even better known for dating poker pro and movie star, Jennifer Tilly. Laak became known widely in the poker scene as the "Unabomber" because of the hooded sweatshirt and sunglasses he wears at the table, making him resemble the forensic sketch of Theodore Kaczynski who was known as the Unabomber. As of 2008, his total live tournament winnings exceed $1,300,000.

Fuad Serhan - 40,700 - United Kingdom. Total winnings $70,620

Jesper Hougaard - 38,800 - Danish poker player by way of England. Hougaard was a player, and later a coach for the Danish National Table Tennis Team. His total earnings in live poker tournaments are $738,069.

Thomas Marchese - 36,200

And for those of you wondering, Annette Oberstar - last year's WSOPE winner and Internet prodigy - is still in the running as well.
