The shortest retirement in history, well, since Brett Favre, Brett Favre and Brett Favre again, is over!

Look who decided to show up at EPT Copenhagen! On the heels of the announcement that he would be playing the NBC Heads Up Championship next month, Peter Eastgate decided to work out the kinks and chose today's EPT Copenhagen as his comeback event.

Eastgate did very well on his first day back to work. He ends the day with 73,200 chips. The chip leader, Pokerstars qualifier Mark Hirleman, ended the day with 163,400 chips.

This is the first of two Day 1's at EPT Copenhagen and many star players were out including defending Champion Anton Wigg, who suffered a late elimination at the hands of Annette Obrestad on a trip-10 vs. flopped jacks hand.

Here are the notable names still alive after Day 1A:

  • Per Line 150,000
  • Annette Obrestad 102,300
  • Kent Lundmark 87,500
  • Allan Baekke 76,000
  • Peter Eastgate 73,200
  • Johnny Lodden 64,200
  • Pierre Neuville 58,200
  • Thomas Bo Markussen 51,000
  • Arnaud Mattern 38,100
  • Scott Montgomery 36,100
  • Surinder Sunar 25,900
  • Anders Hoyer Berg 25,200
  • Ville Wahlbeck 12,300

The tournament continues tomorrow with Day 1B.
