Michael Berry leads EPT London at the end of Day 4

Michael Berry leads EPT London at the end of Day 4

Tuesday, 6 October 2009

There’s a potentially great story brewing at EPT London with British freeroller Michael Berry heading the field with just 24 players remaining. Berry earned his seat by navigating his way through not one but two freerolls.

He initially worked his way through a Daily Mirror freeroll, held in conjunction with PokerStars, of 5,771 runners and then sealed his seat by winning a second 290-runner tournament. Already guaranteed prize money of £17,000 he could be on for something massive.

There is still plenty of top quality competition left in the field though. Among those still challenging for the £850,000 first prize are former WSOP Main Event winners Peter Eastgate and Annette Obrestad, 2009 November Nine finalist Kevin Schaffel and reigning Poker Million champion Marty Smith.

A number of big names bowed out yesterday after making the money. They included Michael Greco in 29th, Chris Ferguson in 37th, Jeff Lisandro in 39th, Teddy Sheringham in 49th, JC Tran in 50th, JP Kelly in 58th and Ross Boatman in 82nd.

The field will be whittled down to a final table of eight when play resumes at noon today.

The leading chip stacks are as follows:

1. Michael Berry (UK) 1,837,000
2. Rodrigo Caprioli (Brazil) 1,647,000
3. Nikolai Senninger (Germany) 1,587,000
4. Tobias Reinkemeier (Germany) 1,291,000
5. Josef Samanek (Czech Republic) 1,215,000
6. Vivek Rajkumar (USA) 1,196,000
7. Benjamin Spindler (Germany) 1,110,000
8. Ivo Donev (Austria) 1,062,000
9. Theo Tran (USA) 991,000
10. Peter Eastgate (Denmark) 988,000
