EPT8 Copenhagen: The final two tables

ept-thumb-promo.jpgWe are down to the final two tables with just sixteen SCRUB fifteen players remaining. Shortly after the table balancing Alexander Manson called the 220,000 three-bet shove of Gerasimos Deres with pocket sevens. Deres held pocket queens and failed to suck out despite flopping a flush draw.

Team PokerStars Pro Martin Staszko was the next player all-in, shoving over the top of Lauri Varonen with big slick and getting called by queens. Varonen flopped a set, Staszko a flush draw and gut shot. The river paired to send the Russian WSOP main event runner-up to the rail in 16th for DKK75,000 (approx. $13,500).
