Chistoph Vogelsang, 28, Masters in Risk and Finance. Comes from Germany but has lived in London for a few years and studied for an MBA in Risk and Finance at the London School of Economics. He mainly plays online high stakes heads-up cash games and has just started playing six max. He’s never played a live tournament of this size before but, after watching EPT Super High Rollers on television, he thought he stood a good chance.
Obviously that proved true as he has not only made the final table but has a real chance of making a run at the title with a stack of 1.215 million, which is good enough for fifth at the final table.
