EPT11 Barcelona: Ihar Soika beats Jason Mercier heads-up to win first high roller of the season
It started today with 21 players, fatigued from a late finish the night before. Their task had been to whittle a record breaking field into something that looked manageable for the course of a single day. The result was what took place today, a quiet yet masterful demonstration of class and talent. No jumping up and down, no hollering or celebrating with refreshed pals on the rail. Just poker, expertly played by some of the best in the world.
