It's a wrap, we have officially ran out of day ones!

191 players entered today's competition giving us a total number of 336 players in our first ever EPT to be held in Greece. Thirty-eight different countries shipped their poker players to the Gulf of Corinth and 5% of them came from Germany. Yesterday we brought you the news that a German player, Julian Herold, finished as the Day 1a chip leader with 138,425 chips and Day 1b was no different. Mario Puccini finished with 159,150 chips and he will go into Day 2 as the overall chip leader.

Three Team Pokerstars Pros made it through to Day 2 and three did not. Toni Judet (143,500), Johnny Lodden (40,000) and Jude Ainsworth (32,600) made it and Arnaud Mattern, Theo Jorgensen and Vanessa Rousso did not. Team Online Pro Randy Lew was also a Day 1b casualty.

232 players will return at 12.00 (CET) on Thursday and we will bring you all of the coverage here at Pokernews.
