EPT Baden: It's a Wrap
Peace at last
Play has just finished, with 38 of the 164 starters surviving. Tomorrow we start again with Day 1B.
We'll have the official chip counts in the morning, but one thing is certain, our Mystery Russian, "Rodion", has raced into a huge lead, with 200,000 chips. At least they will be stacked nicely for a change at the start of Day 2.
Also finishing well were Peter Gould from Britain and Sweden's Ramzi Jelassi. Team PokerStars' ElkY has got himself right back into contention, with about 50,000, after sitting quietly and unnoticed for much of the day, and PokerStars qualifiers Sigi Stockinger, from Austria, and Britain's Phil Shaw are also through. The average stack is 45,000.
So tomorrow will bring another crowd of players eager to hit the ground running, including London EPT winner Vicky Coren, Hendon Mobster brothers Ross and Barny Boatman and, well, about 170 others.
You can catch all the action again right here. Don't miss it!
