It was truly an action-packed day, especially after the dinner break. Everyone expected that players would be cautious around the bubble, as 63 players returned after dinner. But instead, in about an hour and a half, the bubble burst, with Ronnie Espensen taking the disliked title of the Bubble Boy. Another famous casualty was that of Kassem Yassine, last year’s champion, whose hopes of a repeat performance were crushed quite early in the day, although he came in with a decent stack.

The action only got crazier after the bubble burst. In the next hour or so, we’ve seen nine more players hit the rail, taking home at least something for their efforts here in Copenhagen. But even those who did not reach the money will certainly not regret the experience because the atmosphere surrounding the tournament was truly great, with just the right amount of fun, teasing and big hands to make it worthwhile. There was no lack of emotion either, as unlucky rivers sent players to the rail or saved them from nearly certain doom. Action got slower as we went deeper into the night with play stopped after the conclusion of Level 19.

The final day is scheduled to start tomorrow (Sunday) at 12:00. It will be streamed live with a commentary, so you can tune in at www.PokerTube.com as the event plays down all the way to crowning the king of Copenhagen for this year. Once again, the first prize for tomorrow is around €84,000, so there will certainly be no lack of motivation for the participating players. When play resumes tomorrow, we’ll make sure to be here to keep you posted with the latest results.
