EPT Budapest: Like father like son

Poker has always been a generational game; old against young have pitched in together in a way few other contests cannot recreate. A notable example of father teaching son is right here at the EPT Budapest. Yesterday Pagano the younger played, today Pagano the elder, Claudio, does the same.

It’s not the first time the Pagano's have played in the same event. In fact back at the grand final in Monte Carlo they even faced each other on the same table before Claudio was eliminated in 22nd place. Luca of course went on to finish in sixth place on a memorable final table.

That was then, now Claudio goes into the second break of the day with 14,000, whilst Luca, who finished yesterday with 23,500, take a welcome day off. The Team PokerStars Pro spoke to the video blog team yesterday about the week ahead.
