EPT8 Berlin: Wigg leads as 102 set to become 24

ept-thumb-promo.jpg

There's no set number of levels or declared time frame today, it will instead be based on the time it takes to reduce 102 players to just 24.

Things are moving quickly in this Berlin main event, thanks largely to a long first day and a quick bubble at the close last night. How that impacts on Day 3 will be determined soon enough.

Leading today is former EPT winner Anton Wigg (just spotted carrying a bundle of laundered clothes through the lobby), who snatched the lead from another former winner Vladimir Geshkenbein at the bell yesterday.

Regardless of Wigg's sudden rise, it took nothing from a brilliant performance by the Russian, who led from the second level of the day almost through to the end.
