Michael Tureniec heads EPT Copenhagen

Thursday, 24 February 2011

Day 2 of EPT Copenhagen has drawn to a close with 73 players still in the running for the almost €500k first prize. Sweden's Michael Tureniec dominated proceedings yesterday and leads the way with 640,000 chips.

Snapping at Tureniec's heels is Nordic Poker Award nominee Per Linde who ended the day on 514,000 with another Swede, Joel Nordkvist currently third on 419,000. JP Kelly is next on the leader board and heads the British challenge. The double WSOP winner finished the day with a stack of 416,000.

Scandinavian players dominate the remaining field but there's still a strong British presence with Surinder Sunar, John Eames, Robert Akery and Jonathan Weekes all still in contention. One Scandinavian who won't be back though is Peter Eastgate. The former World Champion busted out after his pocket queens ran into Michael Aron's set of fives.

The money bubble will burst in the first few levels today before the field is whittled down to 24 players.
