EPT8 Berlin: Day 2 seat draw, action set to start

ept-thumb-promo.jpgWe're going to try to avoid making any glib comments about the reunification of the field for Day 2, the Easterly 243 of Day 1A being brought into the fold of the Westerly 502 of Day 1B. Too late, that just happened. Looking ahead we can see a healthy 329 players shuffle in for level 11 and it's fair to say that close to two-thirds of that number will find themselves going empty-handed to the iron rail by the end of level 16, when the curtain falls on Day 2.

Chip leader Cengiz 'coin-flip' Ulusu may have a terrifying 242,800 stack but that certainly doesn't mean he can expect to have a smooth day. One seat to his left, the God seat if you will, is EPT London winner David Vamplew, and two seats further is double bracelet winner JP Kelly. Toss in Team PokerStars SportStar Boris Becker into the mix and it should make for an interesting table (table 36).

The full seat draw can be found below and particular note should be taken of table 18 (Jake Cody, Will Moolson, Andrew Chen, Davidi Kitai and Andrew Chen), table 14 (Kevin MacPhee, Dominik Nitsche, Heinz Kamutzki, Jakob Karlsson and Giuseppe Pantaleo) and table 19 (purely because Bertrand 'ElkY' Grospellier and Victor 'Isildur1' Blom are sat next to each other). There's plenty of talent at the table, much known some yet to bring itself to our attention. Play has just begun. Stay with us for updates, chip counts and features for the next nine hours (it has been semi-confirmed that there will be no dinner break).
