EPT Copenhagen: Isabelle OUT
by Simon Young
Team PokerStars' Isabelle Mercier is out after running her A-K into aces on a king-high flop. All the chips went in, and with no help on the turn or river, Isabelle was left to pick up her fruit and leave the room.
Blinds are now at 75-150, and 180 of the 215 Day 1A starters remain. One of the fallers was Sweden's Peter Hedlund, who went from riches to rags in about an hour. After doubling up early with a set over a set, he lost a succession of 10 pots to find himself with nothing.
One of the game's more colourful characters, he will no doubt recount his story to many over a few drinks tonight.
Meanwhile, our favourite Bond villain Mads Mikkelsen has lost nearly half of his starting stack, and is now sitting on just under 6,000.
