Jude and Julian Flying High in Berlin
There are not many UK & Ireland players remaining in EPT Berlin, but thankfully two of the new Pokerstars UK & Ireland Team are doing their sponsors and us proud. Jude Ainsworth of Galway is currently 4th overall amongst the 124 players still in the mix with 720,500 and Julian Thew of Nottingham is right behind him, 15th overall with 421,000. Stuart Fox, Andrew Feldman and John Kabbaj are all still in the hunt too.
Everyone is in the money in this record breaking field of 945 so everyone will now have their eyes firmly on the €1 million first prize.
