EPT12 Prague: Gieles and Dvoress depart as familiar foes rise to the top in Super High Roller

Who'd be a chip leader? We often talk of a 'curse of the chip leader' although there's no such thing of course. A more apt word would, perhaps, be expectation. The 2015 poker world knows enough about variance and ICM to understand that the chip leader at the start of the final table isn't nailed on to win, or even reach the the top three. This is poker, stuff happens.
