There’s only one thing left to do in the 2015 Coco Poker Open, all the prelim and post-lim events are in the books and we just have to find out who will be the Coco Poker Open Champion. There are 135 players remaining from the starting 410 entrants and they still have some work to do.

The last 45 will each earn a piece of the $1,000,000 prize pool and it will take some time to get there. Jean “Prince” Gaspart bagged up the most chips in 1C which was good enough for the over all lead returning today. There are plenty of top players lurking just behind including Aaron Mermelstein, Ryan Van Sanford, Faraz Jaka, Corey Burbick, and Jason Mercier in the top ten.

They are schedule to play down to 36 players, or 27 if time permits, and they’ll return tomorrow for the final day. Players are unbagging their chips and will be underway shortly.
