EPT Dublin: Day 1A

Dublin's Regency Hotel hosts this EPT event which is due to begin at 2pm local time. It's a grand old hotel with plenty of old oak and chandeliers. It reminds me of some Irish Great Aunt who's feeling 'splendid' after a few after dinner sherries...


Pretty in pink - The Regency Hotel



A nice staircase, but no one wants to climb these for an early night tonight...



The tournament room, play begins soon.


But enough of that - I'm sure you want the latest EPT news? Well, the talk of the Regency this morning is that the hotel showers didn't work... There may be some smelly players at the end of day 1A. There may even be some already...

Ok, latest poker news? 46 PokerStars players will play today. Chris Moneymaker, Katja Thater and ElkY, represent Team PokerStars. Other PokerStars players I'll be watching out for are Surindar Sunar, who's well known to our UK readers. Carl Olson, King of PokerStars EPT satellites. Carl has qualified for every EPT event so far, going a little deeper each time. Maybe this one will be his big pay-day?

I'll also be watching out for Ray Coburn... If it's the same Ray Coburn I think it is, he was a notable player at EPT Dublin last year. Ray finished 14th, which may not be all that much to write home about. But let me tell you, Ray stood out from the crowd...

More news from Dublin soon.
