EPT Budapest: Bringing it home


There might have been better debut seasons on the European Poker Tour, but probably not. In his first year playing in the major tournaments across Europe, the Hungarian Denes Kalo finished in second place on two of the largest tournaments going: EPT Baden, won by Julian Thew, and the EPT Grand Final in Monte Carlo, where only Glen Chorny bettered the Hungarian's show.

Those two cashes were good for €375,000 and €1,179,000 respectively, which means we'll be seeing a lot more of Kalo on this tour. And a good result here in this particular event, in his home country, will mean more to Kalo than all the others. Kalo is in the field today, and he spoke to the video blog team yesterday about the excitement of his homeland joining the EPT fray, and how he helped to facilitate it.
