EPT London: Or not the EPT

We mentioned it in the blog earlier today that two players were unable to make it to day 1b this afternoon.
Both Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu and Million Dollar Man Ivan Demidov were all set to play the EPT London this week, but both had a pretty good excuse for crying off.

The reason?

Well, both Negreanu and Demidov have been at the business end of the World Series of Poker Europe Main event, taking place this week. Both had bargained that, should they bust out early, they could make the short trip across London to the Vic.

But it seems some continued top form got in their way and both started the day in dominant positions on the main event final table.

For Demidov his achievement so far has already rocked the poker world, the Russian making poker history by reaching final of the WSOP main event in Las Vegas and its European equivalent here in London.

But for Negreanu he had his sights on a fifth World Series bracelet and spoke to the video blog team about the final earlier today...
