(pokernews.com)- Day 2 of the 2015 European Poker Tour €5,300 Main Event is done and dusted. After just about 1,000 players returned for action, the field was steadily cut down to 343. Finishing atop the survivors was a familiar face, as Nick Petrangelo bagged up 570,000.
Petrangelo was slowly building throughout the day, but in the final level of the night he was hanging around 225,000 or so. A few hands helped him increase his stack, but the banger came when he busted Tonnie Krijn in one of the final hands of the night to shoot all the way up the leaderboard. Petrangelo has been having himself quite a year, first winning over $400,000 at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, cashing twice for six-figure scores at EPT Malta, and then winning his firstWorld Series of Poker gold bracelet during the summer. He has plenty more big results on top of that, having already earned over $1.4 million this year.
