375 Players Enter 2013 World Series of Poker Europe Main Event

This year's World Series of Poker Europe Main event has 375 entries, a €3.6 million prize pool, and €1 million payout to the champion.

Remaining players from the first two days will be combined to kick off Monday’s play.

Among the more familiar names still taking part:  Phil Ivey, Antonio Esfandiari, Phil Hellmuth, Daniel Negreanu, Martin Finger, Max Steinberg, Shannon Shorr and Noah Schwartz.

You know you have a stacked poker tournament when Daniel Negrenau, Phil Ivey, and John Juanda end up at a table together. There is really no better word to describe Day 1B of the World Series of Poker Europe Main Event than stacked, writes Jessica Welman of the WSOP.com.

Some of the players who failed to make it through the second starting day of action were Jesse Sylvia, November Niners Sylvain Loosli and Michiel Brummelhuis, Jason Koon, Steve O’Dwyer, Scott Seiver, Jeff Madsen, Chino Rheem, and Michael Mizrachi.
