EPT Monte Carlo: Luske flies out to burst the bubble

May 01, 2009

EPTAfter last year’s tortuous, two-hour bubble epic, this year’s lasted two hands. The player to sacrifice his own tournament future for the sake of our well-being was the Flying Dutchman Marcel Luske, who perished at the hands of Sebastian Ruthenberg.

Ruthenberg flopped a set of deuces on a 2♥10♥3♦ board and he called Luske’s shove. Luske had A♠9♠ and was drawing mighty thin. His miracle runner-runner never materialised and Luske is gone.

That means that we’re down to 88, among them Luca Pagano, who has now cashed for a record 11th time on the EPT. Also Peter Traply, a PokerStars qualifier from Budapest, who was also the chip leader at the bubble stage this time last year.
