Yesterday’s WPT Copenhagen event finished with 45 players still in the hunt for the $229,938 first place prize.
After 141 players started the day the pressure was on Andre Petrovic to maintain his chip lead. However, with the likes of Ville Wahlbeck and Marvin Rettenmaier still in the field that was never going to be easy. Indeed, despite starting the day with over 220,000 chips, Petrovic couldn’t make it past the masses and into Day 3. He certainly didn’t have anything to be ashamed about though as he was in illustrious company on the rail as Rettenmaier, Wahlbeck, Ana Marquez and Mickey Petersen were just some of the world-class players also exiting on Day 2. While it was bad news for a lot of well known pros yesterday, Steve O’Dwyer managed to capitalise on a rush of positive variance to end the session with 415,600 chips. That haul was enough to put this year's WPT Denmark National winner in fourth place just behind Day 1B chip leader, Sergii Baranov. Today’s action will kick off with Frei Dilling Kjaer leading the pack and play will continue until the bubble has burst and at least 27 players take home $7,171 or more. The chip leaders are as follows:1 Frei Dilling Kjaer 445,500 2 Peter Jepson 434,400 3 Sergii Baranov 417,500 4 Steve O'Dwyer 415,600 5 Jimmy Jonsson 321,400 6 Bircan Catar 284,300 Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
