Tuesday, 23 April 2013

If the organisers of this year’s Germany based event thought the Berlin Cup attracted healthy numbers, then they will no doubt be ecstatic that the Main Event went one better.

Indeed, while the total field for the Berlin Cup settled on 911, this year’s Main Event welcomed 912 to the felt, creating a first place prize of €880,000.

That bumper field has made it the second largest EPT Berlin ever and yet another indicator that poker in Europe is continuing to thrive.

On a day that saw a sea of big names, including >Chris Moorman, David Williams, Luke SchwartzDavid Vamplew, hit the rail, it was Michael Mizrachi who thrived.

Having made the trip across the from the US, the “Grinder” managed to finish the day with 175,400 chips and will go into today’s official Day 2 ahead of such luminaries as: Sam Grafton (135,900), Vanessa Selbst (94,800) and Tobias Reinkemeier (81,800).

In total 452 players will return for Day 2 and by the close of play it’s expected almost half that number will remain in contention for the title.
