EPT Barcelona: Huge pots

A monstrous pot just went the way of Mika Paasonen on the feature table.

Patrick Bruel was the victim of the coldest of decks and, holding A-10, must have thought he was ahead on a flop of Q-10-10.

But there was some very suspicious checking and flat-calling through the streets, before Mika pushed and Patrick called on a blank turn. Paasonen had been exceptionally crafty with pocket queens for queens full and Bruel shipped towers of chips to the Finn.

On the outer tables, Mark Teltscher, the nemesis of Katja Thater, has continued to build. Meanwhile Cort Kibler Melby, an early leader in Barcelona, is out.

Updated chip counts will follow.
