The second starting day of the EPT Berlin main event saw a field of 502 players, more than twice the amount of players that played Day 1a. Cengiz Ulusu, from Germany, finished the day as the chip leader with a massive 242,800 chips - just about 40k more than Vladimir Geshkenbein's 201,600 from Day 1a.
Ulusu is no stranger to success when it comes to the European Poker Tour in Germany. In 2009, before EPT Berlin was born, he made it to the EPT Dortmund final table and finished 8 - after he let a coin decided whether or not he should make a big call. Unfortunately the wrong side came up and he called and lost the pot.
PokerStars Pros from Day 1b who will join Ulusu at the poker tables today are Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier (40,900), Viktor "Isildur1" Blom (109,000), George Danzer (54,100), Alex Kravchenko (49,000), Nuno Coelho (8,500), Matthias De Meulder (14,500), and Friend Of PokersStars Charlotte Van Brabander (37,300).
In total, the 745 entrants have created a prize pool of amazing €3,725,000 and 112 of the remaining 329 players will get a piece of it. The 8 players who make it to the final table will be guaranteed at least €72k each. The last man standing will get nothing less than €825,000.
