Noviks does not have a single recorded live cash according to The Hendon Mob but he’s changed that fact here in Estonia because the money bubble of this event burst during Day 2. Noviks soared into the chip lead after winning one of the last hands of the evening’s action. Maksim Petrov jammed for 400,000 at the 6,000/12,000/12,000a level with {a-Spades}{k-Clubs} and Noviks looked him up with {5-Spades}{5-Clubs}. The fives held as the community cards fell {q-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{9-Spades}. Petrov busted and Noviks climbed to the chip counts’ summit.

Sascha Manns (1,175,000) of Malta was the only other player to bag up more than one million chips at the close of play. Sweden’s Kristoffer Winterstein (960,000) rounded out the podium positions.

Also in the top 10 chip counts going into Day 3 is Mikael Viggander, who you may recall triumphed in a €1,100 Hyper Turbo event at the delayed EPT Prague festival in March. Finland’s Jari Mahonen (685,000), a player with more than $500,000 in live cashes, is another player to look out for on Day 3.

Each of the 30 returning players is guaranteed €1,730 for their efforts after the money bubble burst on Day 2 and 41 players busted inside those money places.

Peter Nordin was the unfortunate soul who burst the bubble. Nordin got his stack in with {q-Clubs}{q-Diamonds} and found himself in a world of pain against the {k-Clubs}{k-Spades} of Oleksandra Shenderei. A final board reading {a-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{j-Clubs} sent Nordin home in 72nd place and everyone else into the money places. You can find a list of busted players and their respective prizes here.

The plans for Day 3 are to get down to the final table. Return to PokerNews, later on, to discover who made it to the final table and which players fell by the wayside.
