EPT12 Prague: 100-proof ladies still alive in Main Event
Here at the PokerStars Blog (ahem, @PokerStarsBlog) we spend a fair bit of time keeping track of poker events on Twitter. Often, it's easier to check in on players via Twitter than it is to track them down in a tournament. Such is the case with the last two ladies left in the Main Event, Elena Stover & Kitty Kuo.
Here's the problem: one thing these two ladies have in common? Well, we'll just let Kitty tell you herself.

That's right. Kitty likes a drink, and if she looked to the barstool on her left, she might just see Ms. Stover sitting there.
We're not just making assumptions here. Here is Exhibit #2.

Now, let us be clear. We admire these women for their stamina. In fact, we might ask for some pointers.
That's...well, what we're trying to say is, our team went out last night to shoot some snooker, and the drinks here in Prague are really cheap, and, well, it's been a long day. More than a couple of times, we have looked at the ladies' Twitter feeds and thought, "Well, a little hair of the dog might not be a bad idea."

Back in action for the €330 Prague poker cup! I'm like 0/10 in these "cup"s so my primary goal is to drink as many beers as possible 🍻🍺— thegroupie (@thegroupie) December 8, 2015
Both women, in addition to being a thousand times better than us at poker, are lovely, and they have somehow worked out a way to stay lovely after so much drink, despite what they may think.
Meanwhile, we all look like something that has washed up out of the Vltava river.

We would just go ask them ourselves how to drink professionally while playing poker so well, but since they are both occupied being among the final 87 players, we'll have to wait for another time.
Stover is looking for at least a top 50 cash to beat her best-ever live finish. Kuo, meanwhile will need to make the final table to set a personal best.
And, if things don't go their way...well, we think they know what to do.
