EPT Prague: Bad for some, worse for others

Six polish players began day 1a but only three remain. One of them is Jacek Ladny. Anyone with a keen mind who is able to cast it back to 2006 might remember Ladny from the PokerStars World Cup of Poker held in Barcelona that year where he was part of the winning team, triumphing over the United States. Ahh, happy days.

Flash forward to now and things aren’t quite so rosy.

“Now start praying.”

That’s what Ladny said after picking up a welcome few hundred to take his stack to back over the 10K mark, still a tentative armoury with the current average standing at 18,500.

Gus Hansen

Ladny’s task was made trickier by the arrival of Gus Hansen earlier today, but the Great Dane has not found the going to be fast, instead it’s muddy at best, another few thousand going in a pot a few moments ago that forced him into a painful fold. Another load went before that, plunging him down to less than 3,000.
