Dan Smith Takes Early Chip Lead in EPT Grand Final

Dan Smith is the chip leader after the opening flight of the Pokerstars Pokerstars Monte Carlo European Poker Tour Grand Final Main Event.

The second flight of the Main Event is underway and features a number of leading players including Daniel Negreanu, Gus Hansen and Vanessa Selbst.
