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?
