EPT Copenhagen: Dinner Break

ElkY, Petersson and Toth

by Simon Young

The last three players are now on a one-hour dinner break. After just two hours, we have lost five of our final contenders, and you have to suspect it will not be long before we have a winner.

ElkY, after that amazing pot when he rivered the nut straight against Hungary's Richard Toth, is chip leader with 2,126,000. As the break started, he revealed his thinking when playing 7-5 offsuit: "We were both deep, so I thought he would fold when I re-re-raised to 285k. Two big stacks against each other is not nice. I did not like his call, but I thought I could bluff him. When that did not work, I had to get the nuts. LOL."

But despite that devastating hand, Toth's outright aggression has seen him creep back up again to within striking distance. He has 1,217,000.

Sweden's Magnus Petersson, a PokerStars cash qualifier, is the short stack on 442,000. When they come back, blinds will be 10,000-20,000 with a 2,000 ante.
