Jesper Feddersen Leads Day 1A of EPT Deauville, Watch The Day 1B Live Stream
It was a big field, as always, for the first starting day of EPT Deauville. You can watch the live stream of Day 1B right here from 14:45 CET.
This was not a far cry from the 339 who played Day 1A last year and with even more players expected today for Day 1B, it should prove as big an event as ever.
Not a great deal of big names were out in show on Day 1A, but some of the notables among the 165 survivors included Vanessa Rousso, Isabelle Mercier, Arnaud Mattern, Antoine Saout, Elisabeth Hille and Marvin
' xcrash154' Rettenmaier.
The overall chip leader is PokerStars online qualifier Jesper Feddersen who is only playing his third live event ever. However he didn't let newbie nerves stop him from bagging up an impressive lead of 188,900.
Some notables who were not so lucky on Day 1A include David Vamplew, Jonathan Duhamel, Eugene Katchalov, Dimitar ' ddanchev' Danchev and Martin Staszko.
