Day 1 numbers in at PokerStars EPT Berlin

With both Day 1 flights now in the books the remaining players in the EPT Berlin Main Event will be combined into a single field as they move on to Day 2 of the tournament at the Spielbank Casino in Berlin, Germany.

It was a good, but not great, turnout for the tournament, as a total of 773 players showed up for the 2011 EPT Berlin –a bit of a disappointment when compared to last year’s 915 total entries—and of those original 773 only 353 managed to survive their Day 1 flights and bag up some chips at the end of the day (some needing bigger bags than others).

Here is a look at the players who will enter Day 2 of the tournament with the 10 largest chip-stacks:

1.    Sander Berndsen — 242,900
2.    Oleg Elkin — 210,000
3.    Cristian Dragomir — 205,500
4.    Jochanan Robert Flink — 203,400
5.    Alek Samardzic — 200,200
6.    Mayu Roca Uribe — 190,000
7.    Max Heinzelmann — 186,400
8.    Aurelien Guiglini — 182,600
9.    Vladimir Geshkenbein — 181,500
10.    Ben Wilinofsky — 180,500

One name that should stand out is that of 2011 EPT Snowfest Champion Vladimir Geshkenbein, who could not only become the first player to win two PokerStars EPT titles, but could possibly do it in back to back tournaments! Of course the Team PKR Poker pro still has a long way to go to make that dream a reality.
