2013 Berlin Cup Attracts 638 Poker Players

There were 638 players for Day 1b of the €1,100 Berlin Cup today which combined with yesterday's 273-strong Day 1a field, means 911 players in total, creating a €883,670 prize pool with €180,000 for first. 112 places paid.

Nearly half the players (435 / 48%) came from Germany - more than ten times the number from the next biggest country Russia, which has 5% of the field with 43 players. It's the first time the Berlin Cup has ever been held and the €883,670 prize pool far exceeds the €500,000 guarantee.

There were 85 survivors from yesterday's 273-strong Day 1a field yesterday including German Team Pro Jan Heitmann.

Today's Day 1b players included Team Pros Alex Kravchenko, Sandra Naujoks, Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier, Michael Keiner, George Danzer, Juan Manuel Pastor and Marcin Horecki as well as Pierre Neuville, Pieter de Korver, Kevin Stani, Toby Lewis, Marius Pospiech, EPT presenter Natalie Hof, Kevin Vandersmissen, Torsten Brinkmann, Jeffrey Hakim and Walid Bou Habib.
