Who Is This Guy?

This guy is one of the chip leaders. But we don't know who he is.

So towards end of play, Gavin Smith tipped us off about one of the Euro big stacks who was refusing to tell anyone in the so-called poker “media” his name. Just wouldn’t do it. We watched as person after person approached him, asked for his name, and he wouldn’t tell. Not that it’d be hard to find out, but this Euro just drew a line in the sand and refused to divulge his name. Either that or he doesn’t speak a lick of English and didn’t know what the fuck anyone was saying to him.

Anyway, he’s friend with Peter Eastgate, so if you know who he is, please comment.

    I was the one who pointed this guy out to Gavin and we later found out his name was Kasper Cordes. He is probably in second place, though we won’t know for sure until they release the chip counts.

    I asked Nolan if we could make him tell us and Nolan tried to ask Eastgate as he walked back to his table. Eastgate told Nolan that the guy could basically speak for himself, although it was clear he didn’t want to.

    I don’t think the guy was being a douche or anything. I just think he was a little rattled by the massive pot he had just won and didn’t want to rub it in of the guy next to him.
