EPT Prague: Play set to start

Perched as we are ten feet above the tournament floor on a concert stage, a panorama of wall to wall poker tables gradually filling with players to the soundtrack of The Verve’s Bittersweet Symphony, and there’s little doubt we have the best seat in the house for day 1a of the second EPT Prague. That means you have the best alternative to being here yourself, the EPT world just on the other side of your computer screen beamed from the Hilton Casino on the banks of the Vitava.

We’re set for a start right on time, clockwork organisation engineered by tournament director Thomas Kremser. Eight one hour levels is the plan, played nine-handed, to come with breaks after each two levels. A full run down on who’s here will follow but you can keep track of the runners and riders, plus their scores, on the chip count page throughout the day.

That’s the written account, check out the moving picture version in glorious Technicolor, complete with sound, courtesy of the video blog team...
