Cristian Dragomir leads EPT Berlin Day 1a

Cristian Dragomir leads EPT Berlin Day 1a

Wednesday, 6 April 2011

So far, so good at EPT Berlin – over three hundred players for the opening flight and no armed robberies to speak of. You remember EPT Berlin as being the stop last year that saw a group of men burst in with guns and grenades to steal hundreds of thousands of euros.

Well, Cristian Dragomir is one player fervently hoping that doesn’t happen as he managed to bag up 205,500 by the end of play, way ahead of any other player in contention. Other survivors of Day 1a include Jack Ellwood, Jeff Sarwer and Arnaud Mattern. Failing to make it through Day 1a were Chris Moorman, Michael Tureniec and Benny Spindler who was eliminated by Dragomir on the last hand of the day.

Dragomir made the the final table at the recent EPT Snowfest but is still probably best known for his altercation with Phil Hellmuth at the 2008 WSOP.

Today we’re already seeing a monstrous field of more than 400 players filling up three floors of poker tables. There are considerations of making some tables ten-handed while players such as Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier, JP Kelly, Liv Boeree, Kevin MacPhee and Boris Becker fill up the available seats.
