There doesnt seem to be as many entries as normal in this event. Sanremo is a beautiful part of the world and i thought there maybe more entries but we will have to see after day 1b

It's strange how EPT Sanremo didn't attracted that much players. The weather is starting to get hotter, what better place to be than near the Mediterranean Sea, enjoying the fresh air while playing some chips?

Interesting, that only 175 people came to play this tournament.

Usually EPT tournaments have a bigger player field.

I played for a package last sunday (altough it would have been a helluva 24 hour travel plan managing to get there in time) on the riverstars Skrill EPT free.roll but I wasnt playing that careful at all, so I remained home.
KK vs. A5 vs. QQ - early stage out, queens got set on flop then p.oker on the river Big Smile

Yeah not many know players either on a small field, I think it clashes with another event that is why there are not many players playing. i don't know which event exactly but I seem to remember one from. Anyway if somebody remembers let me know and have fun guys!

Oh, so there are actually more players,

the number is roughly twice as high than I have thought, still not that many.

It would be sick for a local to win this event, well by local i mean italian in this case...

I really had no spare time to watch this event even though i saw pokerstars documented it pretty well on their blog.
