EPT Prague: A cruel hand of fate

Rolf Slotboom, who has had tournament success on the EPT and in his native Holland, will find none of the same here in Prague, eliminated in the opening levels of day 1a. It was made doubly cruel by the dealer responsible for giving him the hand that did it, a kings against ace-queen debacle - she happens to be Slotboom’s girlfriend.

Elsewhere, Team PokerStars Pro Marcin Horecki’s table is shaping up to be one of the more recognisable in terms of line-up.

Horecki is looking to put the disappointment EPT Poland behind him in favour of the kind of form that took him to third place in London. Alongside him are players also looking to repeat performances of events past. Former EPT winner Mads Andersen is on Horecki’s left, as is Juha Lauttmaas, who rocketed into the poker consciousness last season in this very room, finishing in fourth position.
