Just after the last March’s EPT Campione, European fanciers meet at the EPT Berlin in Germany for the very last stage of the 8th European Poker Tour season before the Grand Final of ETP at the Monte Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort in Monaco.

Last Sunday, the EPT Berlin unfolded its doors but the Main event started on Monday, a championship which registered 243 poker players for the Day 1A. Players paid the buy-in of € 5300 and among them we found Pierre Neuville, Scott Seiver, Andrew Chen, Ilan Boujenah, Vanessa Selbst, Olivier Busquet, Antoine Labat, Regis Burlot, Samuel Chartier, Stephane Albertini, Shaun Deeb, Alec Torelli and Anton Wigg.

During this Monday, the 243 poker players played in ten game levels of sixty minutes and only hundred and ten players remained for the next round at the end of the day. Vladimir Geshkenbein grabs the chip lead along with a good deal of 201600 chips. Behind the Russian player, we saw Jens Weigel with 199600 chips followed by Ariel Celestino with 153300 chips for the top three as far as chip count for Day 1A.

Among other experienced poker players, we hold back the presence of Azmi Korkmaz, Anton Wigg, David Yan, Scott Baumstein, Kalle Niemi, Stephane Albertini, Mathias Kuerschner, Kevin Vandersmissen, Jens Kaiser, Angel Guillen, Iliodoros Kamatakis, Bryan Piccioli and Bozidar Miljkovic for this Wednesday’s Day 2 on 18th April. Petar Kapuran and Ludovic Lacay were not quite as lucky as the 110 qualified poker players and got out untimely the poker room table at the Hyatt Berlin.
