The 2011 EPT Berlin Main Event posted a field of 773 (down a lot from last year’s 945, but hey, at least there hasn’t been a robbery yet). At about halfway through Day 2, around 200 remain. First place will bank $825,000 (EUR).
As of post-time, Thorsten Schafer is chip leader. Other notables among the bigger stacks include Thomas Bichon, Sebastian Ruthenberg, Cristian Dragomir*, a retirement-has-done-him-well Peter Eastgate, Fabrice Soulier, and Dutch field hockey hottie Fatima Moreira de Melo, a woman.
