EPT Prague: There's only Juan Maceiras

PokerStars sponsored player Juan Maceiras fits the typical poker player mould. Young, neglected stubble that has become a beard, youthful clothes and a attitude fit to take on the world. He’s also a good player.

A flash of that talent came earlier in the shape of a top draw lay down that saved Maceiras’ tournament, folding pocket fours on an As-3h-8h-8d-4c board, his opponent showing Ac-8c.

The Spaniard has continued to win chips. Meanwhile Team PokerStars Pro Dario Minieri has lost some, an all-in move with A-J damaging his stack when called by A-Q. The Italian is down to 14,000.

Stop press: Katja Thater is out. The Team PokerStars Pro pushed in with pocket sevens on a ten-high board only to run into a caller with a ten.
