2015 EPT Deauville Day 1a: France's Nathan Gozlan Leads

Nathan Gozlan EPT Deauville

On Sunday, PokerStars European Poker Tour's (EPT) 11th season continued at Casino Barrière de Deauville in France with the start of the €5,300 Main Event. With 199 players paying the buy-in and taking to the tables, approximately 108 remained by the end of the day, and the player with the most chips was Nathan Gozlan of the hosting nation with 148,500.

Of the 199 entrants on Day 1a, not a single Canadian was recognized in the field, but there should be some familiar faces popping up in the next couple of days.

Team PokerStars Pro Marcin Horecki bagged up a top-20 stack, and Sweden's Anton Wigg will also have some chips to play with on Day 2. Others still in the mix include Benjamin Pollack, Dominik Panka, Ronan Monfort, and a short-stacked Eugene Katchalov.

Day 1b begins on Monday with another chance for more players to build a stack for Day 2, and we'll be bringing you a recap of the field when play ends.
