EPT Monte Carlo: Double ups and Team on Team action

When players come back from dinner break, something always happens. Whether the after dinner coffee makes them jittery or the blinds make them jumpy, players start to get their chips in. That's been happening here, and to the benefit of some Team PokerStars Pros.

News from the floor reports that Isabelle Mercier managed to double up with pocket kings. Andre Akkari did it even better. He flopped a set of queens over Pascal Perrault's set of fours.

PokerStars EPT San Remo champion Jason Mercier looked like he was going to exit early. He was nearly down to the felt and has somehow found a way to rebound up to nearly 30,000.

In other news, the Team PokerStars Pro players with the day off are finding ways to amuse themselves. Among the most fun of the day was watching new Team member Chad Brown play heads up against Vanessa Rousso. If you know anything about the two, you know what made this match interesting.

There are about 20 minutes left in Level 5. After that, players are scheduled to go for another two levels (three hours) before breaking for the night.
