Ole-Kristian Nergard (pictured) leads the way for the second straight day at the EPT Grand Final in Madrid. Nergard was the Day 1B chip leader following Sunday's play; he kept things going today and will come into Tuesday's action as the chip leader!

The group chasing Nergard includes Kristoffer Thorsson, who sits second in chips, about 15k in chips behind the leader.

French pro Hugo Lemaire is fourth in chips while US pros Melanie Weisner and the electrifying William Reynolds are right behind Lemaire.

EPT Berlin champ Ben Wilinofsky refuses to go away - he is 8th in chips and is looking to make it two EPT titles in two months.

There are a bunch of other big names also in the race as Day 3 action approaches - Weinman, Ramdin, Gomes, Karr, Sunar, Reinkemeier, Palovic to name a few.
