EPT9 Deauville Day 4: A chat with the chip-leader Shahad Hadaya
Shahaf Hadaya came into Day 4 as a monstrous chip leader, but lost more than half of his stack within the first level after a couple of unavoidable encounters went against him. But, as he tells Sarah Grant below, even a downswing is an opportunity to start rebuilding.
Hadaya, a jeweller who has taken to poker of late, also talks through a few hands from earlier today and his strategy for the remainder of this tournament. He is "feeling pretty good", he says and is still a real contender for the title here.
