EPT Copenhagen: Here for free

This is PokerStars player Branislav Pajic, enjoying his first ever major event thanks to qualifying in a satellite paid for with his frequent player points.
Branislav, 24, who plays under the screen name BaneTheSaint, is a machine engineer from Canada, and is here with his brother who is cheering him on from the rail. This is his biggest poker moment and he's currently on about 7,000 - not bad considering he has only been playing for a year!
Not such good news for James Bond villain Mads Mikkelsen. The Danish film star, who played Le Chiffre in Casino Royale, had been slowly bleeding chips for a couple of hours, and then crashed out with 10-10 against A-K on a king-high flop.
Blinds are now up to 100-200, and 165 of the 215 starters remain. One of the room's big stacks is Dane Phillip Hilm, who finished fourth here last year. He is currently sitting on about 45,000.
