EPT Prague: Ins and outs

There was an immensely impressive array of talent lining up for day 1b in Prague, but so far the upshot of the first five levels of play has been the population of an immensely talented rail. Many of the top names have fallen by the wayside, leaving some of the more unheralded EPT fighters to do battle.

Naturally there are some familiar faces mingling near the summit - the likes of Christer Johansson, Praz Bansi and Marcel Baran need no introduction - but top of the pack is the less well-known Fredrik Nygard, from Finland, who has 64,000 and the chip lead.

Also very much alive, and also from the Nordic lands, is the Dane Christian Grundtvig, a PokerStars qualifier with one of the most glittering resumes in European poker. Grundtvig, who won a WPT event in Paris, talked to the video blog team earlier in the day.
