The current chipleader is 24-year-old Ioana Silvana Apostol from Timisoara, Romania. Silvana first started making waves at Unibet London, where she finished in 15th place. Silvana qualified for that event on Unibet, for which she spent New Year’s Eve playing online in a desperate bid to get the points needed for her package.
“I was on a skiing holiday with friends but I was playing poker, I wasn’t out having fun with my friends, trying to win the package," Silvana said in London. I didn’t sleep for 24 hours, just played poker. I was really tired but I was just so happy when I won it – and then I went out and partied!”
The recent Pharmacy graduate parlayed her cash of £4,900 into more, smaller cashes, but might just surpass her breakout performance here in Copenhagen. Silvana currently tops the standings with 192,000 in points.
