As many predicted, Day 1b of the EPT Copenhagen Main Event attracted a much bigger player-field than Day 1a. In total, 215 players arrived at the SAS Radisson Hotel in Copenhagen yesterday and battled it out for seven levels of play.

The day ended with a local player in the lead, Mads Wissing, who managed to accumulate 127,575 chips. A few familiar poker players who also made it through Day 1b: Johnny Lodden, Anton Wigg, Luca Pagano, Juha Helppi, Arnaud Mattern and home town here Theo Jorgensen.

Day 2 of the tournament begins at noon today and 188 players will return to the tables and continue the battle. Chip leader is still Steve O'Dwyer from USA who accumulated 190,975 chips during Day 1a, and is second place is Lauri Varonon with 165,150. Mads Wissing's stack of 127,575 chips leaves him in third place.

Prize pool:
The 299 entrants have created quite a nice prize pool and 48 players will get a piece of it. The winner will take home DKK 2,515,000 (€338,223), the runner-up gets DKK 1,600,000 and the 3rd place finisher DKK 1,000,000.

There are still 140 players who have to go home before everyone gets a piece of the prize. Luca Pagano seems to be the most known in the field, will he reach the prizes? It’s curious to see how the day1b had more players than the day1a and the chipleader accumulated less chips than the leader from day1a. Does this means the game was tighter in day1b than in day1a? This doesn’t matter anymore, as now they are all in the same fighting for the first 48 places.
