Eureka5 Prague: Seven fifty and counting


Thomas Lamatsch welcomes players to the Eureka Poker Tour

Today is Day 1B of Eureka Prague, otherwise known as Yikes, That's A Lot of People (YTALOP) Day.

According to the Eureka media team, there are 750 players already registered for YTALOP day, while Robin Scherr, my German colleague, is already pecking away at his keyboard, inputting the names of the superstars he'll be reporting on today.

There really are a lot of poker's most fabled talents taking a shot at this one this afternoon, including last year's EPT Prague champion Stephen Graner, who may be making his first appearance back on the tour since his extraordinarily dominant display in this room 12 months ago.
