EPT Warsaw: Friends will be friends
Despite Thomas Wahlroos doubling-up any sense of camaraderie between him and Andy Black would soon disappear when the Irishman saw him off with a rapier thrust from the ugliest of hands. Calling Wahlroos’s all-in with A-K; Andy showed T-6, catching a ten on the flop to send the Finn to the rail. No hand shake, and Thomas has a long memory.
Back to the table where we started in level one and to French actress Alexia Portal who was all-in - with Miika Karjalainen, complete with spiky hair preparing to call. The table doesn’t look that different to how it had started over six hours ago, with just big Ed de Haas and Henri Boutboul missing. Dariusz Paszkiewicz is still in seat one, complete with his glass stuffed with orange slices, and Dutchman Joris Jaspers has also made it this far.
Miika Karjalainen mucked - Alexia survives a little longer.
Joris then tried the same move for himself and again it was Miika with the option to call. This time he took it, unsurprising really given that he was ably armed with two aces, aces that made Joris wince and Miika smile; the Dutchman’s hopes for a second EPT cash gone with A-Q.
“Will you be in San Remo?” Someone asks him.
“Yeah, see you there...”
