EPT Prague: Overtime in Prague

With the side event in full swing the tournament room is full again, and with the added body warmth the place is getting a little hot and a tad funky. Not that that bothers Frenchman Ludovic Lacay who plays on in a hat, scarf and jumper, oblivious to the heat.

A player who might be feeling it more than he was before the break is Raul Mestre who tangled with Constandinos Alexiou in a battle of the blinds that saw the money go in on the flop of 5d-6d-Kd. Mestre showed 4s-3d while Alexiou had his diamond covered with As-Jd. That didn’t matter though when the 3s and Qh hit the turn and river.

“Yes!” from Constandinos Alexiou.

“No!” from Mestre.
