Kevin MacPhee leads EPT Berlin at the end of Day 3

Kevin MacPhee leads EPT Berlin at the end of Day 3

Saturday, 6 March 2010

As Cathphrase host Roy Walker would say, it was another “fast and furious” day at the Hyatt Hotel Grand Ballroom yesterday as the 124 returning players were swiftly reduced to just 24.

With so much cash on the line many were expecting Day 3 in Berlin to be a somewhat cagey affair. In fact just the opposite was true with a string of rapid fire eliminations. At the end of play it was Kevin MacPhee who was in pole position, sitting with a stack of 2,526,000 chips.

Joining the American on the 2m chip plus mark are Danish pro Theo Jorgensen, France's Marc Inizan and the sole British survivor Ketul Nathwani. The 2008 GUKPT London Main Event winner had a fantastic day, charging his way through the field and eliminating a string of players, including fellow Brit and newly minted PokerStars pro Julian Thew. He finished the day in 4th place with a stack of 2,056,000.

Day 2 chip leader Stefan Huber is still in with a chance, as is Ireland's Jude Ainsworth and fellow PokerStars pro Johannes Strassmann.

Play resumes at lunchtime today where the 24 remaining players will be whittled down to a final table of eight. Join us for updates tomorrow.
