Day 2 of the Epic Poker League at the Palms concludes with 23 players remaining as Fabrice Soulier’s decision to bypass playing the World Poker Tour stop in Paris is currently paying off as he starts Day 3 as the chip leader. Only 12 players make the money, so expect a long day starting at 12pm Thursday as the field will play down to the televised final table of eight.

Players sent to the rail on day 2 included EPL debuting players Tom Dwan and Mike Matusow. Michael Binger, Andrew Robl, Pro/Am winner Greg Mueller, Phil Hellmuth and November Niner Ben Lamb also had to leave the Key West room when they were left without chips.

Chasing Soulier among the top five in chips Soulier is David Steicke, Erik Seidel, Nam Le, and Matt Marafioti. Jaime Kaplan finishes the day 9th in chips as Matt Glantz, Christian Harder, Chino Rheem and Allen Bari also remain in contention make the money and take advantage of the season-ending $1,000,000 freeroll.

Here’s the top ten chip counts:

    1. Fabrice Soulier – 453,500
    2. David Steicke – 436,000
    3. Erik Seidel – 353,500
    4. Nam Le – 306,000
    5. Matt Marafioti – 306,000
    6. Dutch Boyd – 262,000

    8. Chris Moore – 250,000
    9. Jaime Kaplan – 245,000
