EPT9 Berlin: Party time

The PokerStars party took place last night in the Felix Club Restaurant on Behrenstrasse. In times past, PokerStars Blog has attempted to cover these events with purple prose, poring over sketchy memories from a night when the only thing that was for certain was that the drinks were "Oh, free you say? Splendid."

We are older now and are much more capable of handling our free booze. But the problem we have this time is that we didn't actually go to the party. Thanks then to our photographer Neil Stoddart, who is as reliable a party attendee as ever there has been on the European Poker Tour. Here's what he saw through his lens:

It might not look much from the inside...
