EPT Prague: What's the rush?

Team PokerStars Pro Luca Pagano just played his first notable hand, heralding a first step on his way to a potential EPT title. Placed against the hands a few hours or days from now it will be insignificant but everyone starts somewhere, and for Pagano it was a cautious bet from the small blind, contesting the hand with Farid Mekhfi the player in seat nine and large white rimmed sunglasses. Ultimately Pagano took it down on a board of 6h-As-5d-Qc-Tc thanks to a sizable bet on the end.

Elsewhere the scenery in this first level is always changing. Team PokerStars Pro Dario Minieri has chosen to take a relaxed approach the start, so relaxed he has yet to arrive, choosing instead to bide his time. PokerStars Sponsored player Johnny Lodden arrived thirty minutes into the level, taking his seat as the rest of his table wondered what they’d done to deserve him.

The picture will change a lot before the day is out, with level two about to begin.
