Roberto Romanello leads EPT Copenhagen

Roberto Romanello leads EPT Copenhagen

Saturday, 20 February 2010

Just 24 players remain at the latest EPT event in Copenhagen and there's a very familiar face leading the way.

Welshman Roberto Romanello managed to overcome a nasty bout of food poisoning to take the lead at the end of Day 3 of the latest EPT event in Copenhagen.

Relief came in the unlikely form of a recipe from the mother of tournament director Robert Serra, which gave the Welshman enough strength to battle through the day. Given the effect on his chip stack, which shot up from 349,200 to 1.4m by the close, it's surprising that the rest of the field weren't queuing up to ask Serra for his mother's magical recipe.

Fellow Briton Andrew Teng also had a great day and sits in second place going into the final three tables. The biggest name left in the field is that of Peter Eastgate. The 2008 WSOP winner lies in seventh place with a stack of 726,000 chips.

Surprisingly ElkY isn't among the final 24. The Frenchman made the money but busted out in 40th place. Day Two chip leader Csaba Toth also hit the rail, as did Amsterdam Masters winner Kristoffer Thorsson.

The action resumes at 1pm today.
