From 452 players to 175, yesterday’s EPT Berlin Main Event came to a conclusion last night with Ana Joentausta leading the way.
After a day of frantic action that saw the likes of Giacomo Fundaro, JC Alvarado and Nicolas Chouity hit the rail, it was Finland’s Joentausta and his 751,300 stack in command at the end of play.A late surge allowed Joentausta to finish more than 200,000 chips ahead of his closest rival, Anaras Alekberovas.While Day 2 was positive for Joentausta and Alekberovas, their route towards the €880,000 top prize certainly won’t be easy as the chasing pack contains a plethora of world-class players.Indeed, in addition to Juha Helppi (225,100), Barny Boatman (102,700) and the in-form Dominik Nitsche, defending champion Davidi Kitai (282,100) will also return for today’s third session.Having called Walter Blatter’s all-in with pocket queens, Kitai was able to bolster his stack after his opponent’s 9d 8h failed to connect with the 5c 9h Ah 5h Ac board in any significant way.Today’s session will see the remaining 175 players try to make it past the 136th place bubble and lock up at least €8,000. Qualify for future EPT events at PokerStars. New players will get $20 worth of freeplay.
