EPT Budapest: All the way from London

If there was ever such a thing as a soft table in an EPT, and I doubt there is, Team PokerStars Pro Vicky Coren’s line up wouldn’t be it, featuring as it does World Series bracelet winner, and fellow Londoner, Praz Bansi.

The two are familiar with each others’ play having clashed countless times in London’s Victoria Casino, home to the English leg of the EPT just a few weeks ago. Time to do battle again.

Praz got them started, raising pre-flop to 550 from middle position. Coren was in the small blind and called. It was just the two of them for a flop of 4c-3-Js. Coren checked, Praz bet out for 650 and Coren called. On to the turn, the 4h.

Coren looked at Bansi before she looked at the board, checking before Bansi did the same. The river came 3h...

“I’m checking and calling” said Coren tapping the table, “I must be in front.”

Praz immediately went for his chips and made it 2,200 to see if Coren was true to her word. “Oh god” she said, but she was, calling the bet. Bansi showed K-J for top pair, Coren folded tens.

“nh” she said. Coren now down to 5,000.

It's nearly half way through the day's play, this is day 1b...
