EPT London: Official Day1A chips, and a confession...

52 players remained at the end of day 1A, not the 58 the guys in the press room decided was the figure at 3.30am last night as they hurriedly typed up their last posts. It gets a little confusing covering large events, sometimes things get missed, or misreported. Players sometimes bust out without being noticed. Perhaps their solitary exit is more appropriate? I doubt these players really want to read their poker sob story in graphic detail on some webpage...

This afternoon when the official chip lists were printed, everyone in the press room expected to see figures differ from the 'guess-a-stack-at-a-glance' etimates we'd come up with late last night. But we all expeced to see a number beside Victor Ramdin's name. We looked, but Victor Ramdin's chip count wasn't there. It turns out Victor busted out in the last hand of play. Nobody saw the details, and I'm sorry not to bring you this news last night. I'm even more sorry that this Team PokerStars player won't be taking a seat in this EPT event tomorrow. Only Isabelle Mercier remains of Team PokerStars players who started on day 1A, she'll joined by 5 other PokerStars who'll be taking a day off today, but playing Saturday.
