EPT Warsaw: More of the same

More bust outs.

Robert Kucharski bounced his sunglasses on the table at the moment his day ended. He must have felt confident with his pocket aces when his all-in was called, but he hadn’t counted on the poker gods. His opponent showed A-J which crept up on the aces as the board was dealt – 3c-9d-Td-Qh-8d. The sunglasses bounced on the eight.

Nicolo Calia will be joining him on the rail, a simple case of good but not good enough, pushing with A-Q, called by Uffe Holm with A-K.

Former soccer player Hans Eskilsson is not out, but has his work to do. His stack was slashed to 15,000 when he called the all-in of Moises Ramos with A-Q. Eskilsson showed A-T with neither hand helped by the board. Ramos immediately began sending a text message while Eskilsson spoke quietly into a Dictaphone. There’s always someone to tell the story to, whether it’s a friend or yourself later on.

A few more seat changes have thrown the Germans together with Andreas Krause, Shooting Star Sebastian Ruthenberg and Team PokerStars Pro Katja Thater all at one end of the table.

Team PokerStars Pro ElkY

ElkY Grospellier is close to the felt after his collision with a set of sixes. The money went in pre-flop with the Team PokerStars Pro holding A-K. He’s left with a meagre 10,000.

The latest player gone is Gino Alacqua. That makes less than 60 players left.
