Ontario’s Andrew Chen In Great Shape For PokerStars European Poker Tour Berlin Final 8


At the completion of Day 4 in Berlin, just one Canadian remains with a shot at bringing home the latest EPT title; Mississauga’s Andrew Chen sits among the top 3 chip counts to enter tomorrow’s Day 5 and the official final table of 8.

745 players began the 5,300 Euro Main Event, creating a prize-pool of 3,725,000 (EUR) and the remaining players are all guaranteed a nearly 6 figure pay-out of approximately 94,350, when converted to Canadian dollars. Several other Canadian players did find their way into some min-cashing finishes, however, Andrew could bring home more than double his previous largest cash to date with a first place finish here.

Chen currently sits 19th on the Hendon Mob’s Canadian All Time Money list and has previously won a $5,000 NAPT event, had a 3rd place finish in 2008 at EPT Prague and just misses a WSOP bracelet with a second place finish in a $1,500 No Limit Hold’em Event in 2009. A seven figure finish here would add quite nicely to his just over $2,000,000 in official career tournament cashes, as well as put him within arm’s reach of the Top 10 All Time Canadian Money Finishers. Best of Luck to him!

Here are the numbers for the Final Table:

1 – Davidi Kitai 5,400,000 (chips)
2 – Bahadir Kilickeser 3,700,000

I love the game but am far to social to take it seriously and sometimes give up a little to much information at the table because I enjoy discussing the game, so decided it was safest for my bankroll to take up writing about the game. That way I still get to meet the cool people and opinions on the game, but with a little less risk.
