EPT9 Deauville Day 1B: David Ostrom top of the rostrum, topples Casey Kastle from the battlements

Howard Swains

It is a truth universally acknowledged that Day 1B of an EPT main event will feature more players than Day 1A. There will be more big names among them, there will be more stories to tell from the tables and, most importantly, everyone will find out what they are actually playing for -- ie, the prize-pool is announced. It takes until Day 1B until the tournament really feels as if it is coming together, taking shape. Feet are now under the tables and chairs are gently moulded to accommodate expansive derrieres.
