EPT London: Day three begins

So here’s the reason why you might want to clear a good block of your day. Cancel the shopping, the fishing trip or the ball game and the lawn can wait until tomorrow. You need to hand over your time, without reservation, to crunch time at the EPT London.

Just four tables remain. Thirty-two players, ten PokerStars qualifiers and a Team PokerStars Pro go into the hopper, as well as a few faces you’ve seen before gracing business ends of tournaments like these. Records stand to be broken this weekend and on the EPT, and with this cast, they most likely will be.

This is how they’ll start. Time to start picking sides...
