After 480 players entered Unibet’s return to the Parisian capital, just 105 players remain in the Unibet Open Paris Main Event ahead of Day 2, which starts at 11am.

Held at the Club Circus in central Paris, the tournament had four starting days including a special one for Parisian regulars and another Turbo flight which was open only to re-entering players.

In the end, it was the chip leader of the very first flight on Wednesday, Michel Leibgorin, who bagged the overall chip lead with over 500,000 in chips.
