Mark Hirleman, from Arizona, leads the field with 163,400 chips after that Day 1a of the 2011 EPT Copenhagen Main Event has come to and end. He and another 132 players are now through to Day 2 of the tournament. Three of the biggest names that will play Day 2 as well are Annette Obrestad and Johnny Lodden from Norway, and Peter Eastgate from Denmark. Anton Wigg, last year's Main Event winner, was among the last players to bust. Anton Wigg played very well and could easily have ended up as the chip leader if it wasn't for an all-in against Obrestad with AJ flush draw vs pocket 10's - an all-in which Annette Obrestad won with a set of 10's.
Day 1b of the tournament is about to start now. An even bigger field of players are expected today, so let's hope that it will be an interesting day of poker!
