EPT Prague: More Italian action

Jakob Eberg has become the latest victim of the PokerStars qualifier Massimo Di Cicco's relentless rise up the chip ladder. Supported by a crowd best described as "vocal and passionate" (I suppose just describing them as "Italian" would do the trick), Di Cicco ousted Eberg with A-Q versus A-J all-in pre-flop. No jack and Eberg is toast.

Di Cicco has somewhere in the region of 300,000 now, and has a lot of kiss marks on his cheeks flooding in from the rail.

And another: Just as this was being typed up, we saw another faller and - yes - the vanquisher was an Italian player. Salvatore Bonavena had Manuel Bevand covered and had the Frenchman all in. Bonavena had K-Js and Bevand could only muster a T-6d. The board offered gutshot possibilities for Bevand, but they missed and he is out. We are down to 18.
