Seat 7: Daniel-Gai Pidun, 36, Lippstadt, near Dortmund, Germany – 5,250,000

Daniel-Gai Pidun

Pidun rarely plays tournaments but when he does, he tends to do well. He takes a week’s holiday every year to play EPT Berlin – and always goes deep. Two years ago he bubbled the final to finish ninth for €45,000 and last season he came 17th for €20,000, which are his two best live results to date. He also competes in tournaments at Casino Bad Oeynhausen near his home.

Most of the time though, Daniel-Gai is busy running a cell phone parts company with his brother Thomer, as well as spending time with his family. Thomer also plays poker and back in 2009 the pair found themselves on the same final table in a €200 Bad Oeynhausen tourney – Thomer finished second and Daniel-Gai fourth.

Herold has four cashes to his name, one of which came at Barcelona at the beginning of Season 9 when he finished 35th for €20,000. His best live result before EPT Berlin was as a runner-up for €22,785 in a tournament here in Berlin earlier this year.

EPT9 Berlin: It's Final Table Time

Last Sunday, the first of 912 players sat down with the hope of still being involved on this very day. After 30 levels of poker, eight have survived all the EPT Berlin has to offer. That also included a near six-hour final table bubble period.

It's hoped they still have some competitive spirit and the concentration left to perform to their highest capabilities. Concentration will be important as any mistake with the big blind average starting at 28.5 could be costly.

Here's a reminder of how the players line up:
