EPT8 Campione: The Campione way of life


Everyone seems to have settled in well to the Campione way of life after nearly a week in country, or in exclave. What does that mean exactly?

Well, it means working late, getting up late, arriving at work early and wondering what anyone who lives here does to pay the bills, and why anyone would live here in the first place.

There really isn't much to Campione, as we just explained to James Hartigan, who has arrived to commentate on the action tomorrow. He'd already guessed that the row of three cafes and a pizza parlour constituted "downtown" and, discovering the casino buffet is pretty good, resolved not to leave the casino at all.

Say hello to our little friend

That said the view this morning is spectacular. That said for a building surrounded by such scenery there are surprisingly few windows. That said, looking out now only creates
outdoor envy; it's the perfect day to be outside sipping something in the sunshine.

That said (that's enough of that) today presents the first opportunity for that to happen. Last night an extended period of play, seven levels rather than six, reduced the field to 24. The penultimate day always has the potential for an early finish, we should find out soon enough.

Leading today is Jannick Wrang who bagged up 1,742,000 last night, with others including David Vamplew and Ronny Kaiser, as well as Olivier Busquet and Koen de Visscher all counted on today to provide something interesting. Anything less just wouldn't be Campione.

Play starts at 2pm.
