Estrellas Poker Tour Season 2 begins with bumper field

estrellas-poker-tour-thumb.PNGAfter the success of Season 1 of the PokerStars Estrellas Poker Tour it was no great surprise to see Season 2 getting off to a flyer. Day 1A at Madrid yesterday saw 229 players at the tables.

After nine levels just 80 of those survived to come back for tomorrow's Day 2 (Day 1B plays today). Chip leader is PokerStars qualifier Miguel Angel Candanedo Dominguez from Spain with 134,900 chips, followed by Daniel Mcaulay from Ireland with 116,200.

Two of the 149 to bust were Estrellas leaderboard winner Alvaro 'Dracu' Marin and Jesus Lozano Cortes, the EPT Barcelona runner-up.

There will likely be an even bigger field for today's Day 1B, including Team PokerStars Pros Juan Manuel Pastor and Juan Maceiras, as well as Friend of PokerStars Poli Rincón.
