Many big names were lost during the second day of the EPT Berlin main event: Max Lykov, Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier, Eugene Katchalov, Jeff Hakim, Tobias Reinkemeier, Mattias De Meulder, Benny Spindler, Jake Cody, Vanessa Selbst, and a few others. Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi, the Day 1B chip leader, also failed to make it through the day. Mizrachi was sent packing during the fourth level with the nut flush against the turned full house of Khiem Nguyen, a young German player.

Boris Becker is the most familiar name among the 175 players who will return to play in a few hours. The former German tennis pro will bring 113,000 chips to the tables, which is about average. He will be joined by notables such as Theo Jorgensen (171,600), Olivier Busquet (170,000), Alex Kravchenko (135,000) and Liv Boeree (85,400). The money bubble will burst when 136 players remain (€8,000 minimum cash) and the winner will take home an incredible €880,000!

If you've been following the tweets of Boris Becker over the past couple of days (@TheBorisBecker), you'll notice a confusing and endearing habit of his to refer to himself in the third person. But because it's Twitter, he does it in abbreviated form, meaning "BB", as in "Into Level 14, average is 126, BB has 120".

That's weird when folks refer to themselves in the third person...

Another guy who does that a lot is 'The Rock'....

I was watching a televised TV poker tournament a few months ago in which Boris was playing. He didn't seem to know what he was doing too well. When I first realized it was the famous Boris Becker,....I was SHOCKED at how old he looked.... He's an OLD MAN!!!

I think the last time I saw anything of him was about 10 or 20 years ago... Smile

Those tweets from him must be very confusing for those who aren't into the scene of what he's talking about.

Sure,...but if it wasn't for the banner across the bottom of the screen,...and the announcers saying his name,...I wouldn't have even knew who it was...

Back in the day,...he was in the news weekly and looked so young and vital!!!

Maybe poker has taken its toll on him and turned him into a withered old man..... Big Smile
