written by: John under News Comments: Comments Off

Day 1a of the PokerStars EPT Copenhagen Main Event attracted a solid field of 214 players, and Day 1b added a further 235 players to the final tally of 449; far ahead of last year’s turnout which stood at 423 entrants. With over €2,000,000 in prize-money up for grabs –with nearly €500,000 going to the winner—this will go down as one of the largest tournaments in Danish history.

Among the field were the best and brightest poker stars from Scandinavia including a number of Team PokerStars Nordic Pros: Viktor Blom, Peter Eastgate, Andreas Torbergsen, Johnny Lodden and Ville Wahlbeck. Also on hand were top European players Annette Obrestad, JP Kelly, John Duthie, Allan Baekke, Jake Cody, Juha Helpi, Sami Kelopuro, and Toni Judet.

Heading into Day 2 of the tournament it was PokerStars online qualifier, Domanatas Klimciauskas of Lithuania leading the way. Here is a look at the Top 10 chip counts as the players prepare for Day 2 of the EPT Copenhagen, courtesy of www.bluffmagazine.com:
