EPT Deauville: The perfect combination

January 20, 2009

You’d rather be lucky than good. And best of all, you’d rather be both. Sebastian Ruthenburg’s nickname, with which he does not quibble is “Luckbox”. And his reputation – EPT Barcelona champion, World Series bracelet winner – shows that he’s good.

Ruthenberg just took K-8 up against A-6 all in pre-flop in a battle of the blinds. The king rivered to double him up to about 8,000.

Sebastian “Luckbox” Ruthenberg

Luckbox is back.

The players have taken a break at the end of day level six, with two more to play until day 1A is a wrap. The young Belgian Jonathan Abdellatif is still sniffing around the chip lead, although we’re down to 170 players from the starting field of 302, which suggests there may be some other monsters lurking out there, larger than his 55,000-odd.

Approximate chip counts continue to appear on the chip counts page. And if you want to focus on the action from France only, without interruptions from Chile, then you can filter PokerStars blog to feature only EPT Deauville news. Similarly, if you’re hot for Chile, you can filter yourself to the Latin American Poker Tour news only.

Or both. It’s your prerogative.
