EPT Berlin - Main Event: Massive field in Day 1b of the tournament!

A massive field of 557 players packed the ballroom at the Grand Hyatt hotel in Berlin as the second starting day of the EPT Berlin Main Event kicked off. Out of the 557 players who started the day, roughly 300 players made it to Day 2 of the tournament.

Among them we find PokerStars PRO's William Thorson (133,100), Vadim Markushevski (93,800), Jude Ainsworth (138,100), Noah Boeken (54,100), Florian Langmann (134,000), Julian Thew (71,600), Johannes Strassmann (100,700), Marcel Luske (75,400), Thierry van den Berg (36,200) and Chad Brown (45,400)

Chip leader as Day 1b came to an end was Tu Tuan To from Germany with 212,600 chips. He is now only 1k behind the big chip leader from Day 1a, Kfir Yumin from Israel. However, the tournament is still at the early stages and its hard to say which players that will make it far in the tournament. 

Well, if I could take a wild guess, then I would say that the Swede William Thorson (picture) will make it far in the tournament. He's a a very talented and skilled poker player (3 EPT Final Tables, 13th Place in the 2006 WSOP Main Event etc) who has been doing very well lately in many major tournaments. So maybe its time for him to take down a big tournament now?

ouch, after day 1a i thought there would be only 389 players but if we add these ones it is almost 1000 players. Seems like a huge tourney.

Yeah, the last Day 1 is usually the one with the biggest field. Wish I could be there.

This is a very strong field. Strong indeed. We will see who the best is. I hope that someone from South America wins the Tourney.

I'm glad that Jude Ainsworth is still there. I am a big fan of him since he won the last WCOOP when he wasn't pro. He is a nice Irish person so ... I wish he win.

All european tourneys are getting bigger each year that passes. This confirms what everyone has been saying, that poker is growing and more people are trying their luck at the big tables. Which is also a sign of the crisys, because when economy is going down, people tend to bet more on their luck. That can bring other problems related...

Just a random thought but...
The surrounding hotels must love this poker boom! More rooms let out!
Also the local economy must have a small uplift when more and more players are around the area? Dont know do you think it would be a noticable uplift?
Tu Tuan To from Germany with 212,600 chips.
thats a nice stack after only one day, I wonder what they started with? anyone know?

Ok, yesterday I posted my doubts about this EPT: now I have to say the cap has almost been reached: more or less 980 players is a wonderful result Smile
Good luck all italian players
