2011 EPT Berlin

German poker player Daniel Pidun led the pack at the 2011 EPT Berlin after Day 3 with only 24 players left out of 773.  Pidun is not a household name in the world of poker. 

Germany still had 7 representatives among the 24 left, including the second place position.  Russia, Sweden and Italy also enjoyed strong showings with a total of three Russians and two Swedes and Italians each.  The only remaining US player was Jeffrey Hakim while Costa Rica had a PokerStars qualifier, Luis Jaikel.  Costa Rica is the hub of online poker sites catering to North American players. 

Lithuanian poker player Kristijonas Andrulis has the 4th biggest chip count and is the highest ranked of the poker field with strong showings on the live circuit scene.  He has over $500,000 in lifetime winnings. 

Last year’s EPT Berlin gained worldwide attention following a notorious brazen robbery while the event was being televised. 

The 24 chip leaders and country representations appear below.
