Could the EPT London Be Chris Moneymaker's 1995 British Open?

Chris_moneymakerWe've been sort of predicting that Chris Moneymaker will pull off a John Daly this year by winning his first major after pretty much sucking ever since he won the 2003 WSOP Main Event, and although he's come up empty handed so far, the flash-in-the-pan poker player is off to a good start at the EPT London, finishing Day 1A with the third most chips (79,700) behind current leader Nicolas Levi (100,300) and Daniel Mangas (98,500).

So could this be the one? Can Moneymaker pull off a win on the same soil that saw Daly make his triumphant comeback in 1995 at the British Open?

Yeh, probably not.

Others at the top on Day 1A at The Vic whose names we can spell and pronounce include Ola Brandborn (73,100), Barny Boatman (45,300), Marc Goodwin (43,000) and the forgiving husband of Rhowena Colclough, David Colclough (39,000).

Journalist, one-time porn producer and last year's EPT London winner Vicky Coren, a woman, was eliminated during day one action.

Day 1B is already underway with Daniel Negreanu, Gavin Griffin, Joe Beevers, Thomas Wahlroos, Ram Vaswanie, Sander Lylloff and Liz Lieu among the players in the field.
