EPT Prague: Thorson thawed

William Thorson is busto, ending a fairly miserable backward slide through the final couple of levels for the Team PokerStars Pro. Ever the action player, Thorson had doubled up early, and built his stack to around about 35,000 at one point. But all his chips drifted away in sizeable chunks until he was left with 7,000 and mistimed a bluff that left him with 3,200.

Those went in soon enough - a push from the big blind over a button raiser. But the button had sixes, Thorson could only manage A-9 and it did not improve.

Noah Boeken and Dario Minieri remain in the hunt, as the rapid eliminations continue. Also on the rail by now are both the EPT Budapest winner William Fry and Matt "Ch0ppy" Kay, two players who featured on that undisputed table of doom from earlier, alongside Peter Eastgate, Nicolas Levi, et al. Neither has anything to prove, though, and they shared their thoughts with the video blog team earlier.

The first couple of these videos feature Fry; the third is with Ch0ppy. Enjoy.
