OK, you might not believe this but it’s true. With five minutes left of level 19, there were 36 players remaining in the tournament. The tournament director Thomas Kremser suggested playing on for a few more minutes rather than heading straight to dinner, just to see if we could lose the requisite four players that would mean an end to today.
And, of course, we managed that no problem. Four other players took the long walk away from the table and to the cash desk, calling a halt to proceedings on day three. We are now frantically attempting to catch up after what might be the swiftest EPT day we have ever known.
Our prize-winners and our chip counts page will be updated imminently. Then we’ll have our usual full wrap up of the day.
