119 left at EPT Berlin – Fabrice Soulier leads

Friday, 8 April 2011

Frenchman Fabrice Soulier is the man to beat heading into Day 3 of the EPT Berlin Main Event. The Everest sponsored pro (poker not double glazing) accumulated a stack of 1,079,400 by the close of play, a full quarter of a million ahead of closest rival Alessandro Laubinger who has 742,200.

Yesterday proved to be a fateful one for the two opening flight chip leaders, Cristian Dragomir and Sander Berndsen, who both busted out within a couple of levels. Other notables to hit the rail included Irish Open champion James Mitchell, Sandra Naujoks, Team PokerStars pro Arnaud Mattern and Irishman Dermot Blain.

There are still plenty of big names dotted amongst the 119 remaining players including 2008 WSOP Main Event winner Peter Eastgate, Ben Roberts, Thomas Bichon, Jack Ellwood and EPT Prague winner Roberto Romanello.

The money bubble burst just before the close yesterday after two short stacks were eliminated with German veteran Karl Heinz Klose sneaking his way to €7,500. The field will be whittled down to just 24 by the end of the day today.

Join us later to see who is that bit closer to a €825,000 pay day.
