EPT Prague: Not the final table

Although there's just the one table still in play, this is not the "real" final table, which on the EPT can only feature eight players. We need to lose one more from this pseudo final table until we can pack up for the night.

The TV bubble is a cruel one, denying television time as well as additional money. No wonder then that the short stacks at the moment are reluctant to get involved unless they have the goods, while the big stacks will do anything they can to polish them off. The Nygard/Cirianni hand moments ago was typical, and it was followed up by a similar hand where Nasr El Nasr re-raised all in on the flop after Nygard had had a tickle.

This time the Finn laid it down and the German stacked another few.

This period of play can last a good long while, and we will wait patiently until the inevitable explosion.
