Ben Wilinofsky heads EPT Berlin final table

Sunday, 10 April 2011

Just 8 players are left at EPT Berlin with Ben Wilinofsky leading the chip counts. The Canadian qualifier, who plays online as NeverScaredB, will start the final day with a stack of 5,225,000, just a few big blinds ahead of Maximilian Heinzelmann who has 4,970,000.

Martin Jacobson has made his third EPT final table and after very near misses in Vilamoura and Deauville he will be hoping to finally take an EPT bracelet. The Swede returns with 2,085,000 chips.

Joining Wilinofsky, Heinzelmann and Jacobson at the final table will be Vadzim Kursevich, Darren Kramer, Armin Mette, Team PokerStars pro Joep van den Bijgaart and Jonas Gutteck.

One notable name missing from that list is start of day chip leader Daniel-Gai Pidun who was the final table bubble boy. The short stacked Pidun must have though he was well placed for a timely double up when he shoved with queens late on day 4. Unfortunately he ran into Armin Mette's aces and couldn't overturn them. The German was forced to settle for €45,000 for his ninth place finish.

The eight remaining players are all guaranteed at least €66,000 with the winner walking away with €825,000.

The chip counts heading into the final table are as follows:

Ben Wilinofsky Canada 5,225,000
Maximilian Heinzelmann Germany 4,970,000
Vadzim Kursevich Belarus 4,345,000
Darren Kramer South Africa 2,235,000
Armin Mette Germany 2,185,000
Martin Jacobson Sweden 2,085,000
Joep van den Bijgaart Netherlands 1,060,000
Jonas Gutteck Germany 1,025,000
