EPT Deauville: Penultimate day of side events; Dahmani wins the 6-Max

It's a slightly quieter day for side events here on the penultimate day of the EPT Deauville Poker Festival. There are four events today but only one will be completed, the other three will finish as part of seven events that will be running (other than the Main Event and High Roller).

The €800 Deepstack kicked off at midday with a total of 105 players, just 66 currently remain including father-and-son duo Yury and Andrey Gulyy, Ilan Boujenah and Simeon Naydenov.
