EPT8 Madrid: A delightful Day 2 seat draw

ept-thumb-promo.jpg

Take a scan through today's seat draw. Go on, do it. It is a peach. Plenty of players, plenty of interesting tables and match-ups. Look at table 18 for instance. It's got Team PokerStars Pro Johnny Lodden, high stakes cash player Olivier 'livb112' Busquet, EPT Vilamoura winner Toby Lewis, party boy James Sudworth and, if I'm not mistaken, a man that had trouble using the coffee machine this morning in our hotel, Fadhil Frag. Lodden is the largest stack on the table with 86,000, the rest all have around 50 big blinds.

Play has started with level 9 for blinds of 400-800 with a running 100 ante. Live updates can be found in the scrolling box at the top of the PokerStars Blog EPT Madrid page, which also has handy little tabs to click on for chip counts and prizepool. The team are scampering from the press room to the tournament floor and (largely) fighting the temptation to pick at the buffet. It's hard graft, we're telling you.
