EPT Prague: The end of Lodden's road

There's no one more accustomed than Johnny Lodden at building short stacks into mountains. But let's be honest, he's not bad at sometimes turning mountains into dust as well. Sadly for the Norwegian professional, the latter is true here in Prague, where Lodden has just departed in 43rd place. He has ridden his usual roller-coaster, up among the clouds and down in the gutter and, as ever, it's been thrilling to watch. But he was very short-stacked and got them all in with A-K. Ludovic Lacay called with pocket nines and Lodden was done.

He takes €8,800 for his troubles here, not as much as he'd surely have liked, but that's two cashes out of three tournaments since he's been kitted out in the PokerStars livery. There can be no complaints about that.

Also falling in the past few hands were Lars Johan Persson, Riccardo Lacchinelli, Roberto Romanello and Petter Petterson.
