Day 3 of EPT Berlin’s Main Event was all about the number “5” as five levels of play managed to cut the field to just 55 players from an initial 912.
Starting yesterday’s session at the top of the chip counts was Aku Joentausta and after a successful grinding session that’s where he stayed. Using the weight of his stack to pressure those around him, the Finnish pro was able to break away from Anaras Alekberovas who started the day in second place and bag 1,039,000 chips. Indeed, while Alekberovas couldn’t keep in touch with the chip leader, he still managed to end the day amongst the frontrunners with a stack of 805,000. One player who couldn’t make it through the day, however, was Davidi Kitai. The defending champion found himself on the wrong end of a jacks versus kings encounter early on in the day and could only limp past the bubble before busting out. After moving all-in with pocket deuces, Kitai was unable to outrace his opponent’s K-Q and eventually heading to the cashiers’ desk in 129th place to collect €8,000. At the close of play a number of big name pros were left watching from the sidelines with Kitai, including Barny Boatman, Juha Helppi and Johan Eames.However, thanks to the depth of talent in this year’s event, the remaining roster still boasts a host of high quality players, including: Liv Boeree (279,000), Olivier Busquet (719,000) and Bryn Kenney (220,000) as well as Boris Becker (116,000).Qualify for future EPT events at PokerStars.
