European Poker Tour, Dublin - Day One 'B'

European Poker Tour, Dublin - Day One 'B' 0001

Day 1 B of the Poker Stars European Poker Tour Dublin featured a stronger field than the previous day. Saddling up for play on day two were Dave 'Devilfish' Ulliott, London EPT winner Vicky Coren, Marcel Luske, Ram Vaswani, Noah Boeken, Greg Raymer, Harry Demetriou, Juha Helppi, Tony G, Luca Pagano, Surinder Sunar, and Dave Colclough, among many others. The day began with 208 players, a few more than began day one 'A'.

The fact that there were more starters might explain why we had 60 survivors that are going to play the Day 2 versus the 49 from Day 1 A. But, the big names were dropping like flies as the action started fast and furious.

One by one, the top players filed out the big door. Some couldn't stay away for long, and came back and played cash games. One of the most interesting cash game tables was the one in which Greg Raymer and Chris Moneymaker were playing for pretty big stakes. Raymer won a €10,000 plus pot on one hand, with around ten players witnessing his performance.

Let's go through some of the more notable hands of Day 1 B:

Simon Trumper just called preflop, and both blinds came along with him. The flop shows 5s-6s-Qs. The blinds check and Simon bets 200, with only the BB calling him. Turn is the 8s. Simon bets 300, gets a call, and the last community card was the 2s. The BB starts laughing about the flush on the table, but Simon didn't find that funny, and bets 4,000 at the pot. The bet quieted his opponent quickly, and he put his hands on his chin to contemplate his action. Suddenly, Simon trumpets up, and says: "I don't have the Ace of spades as you know". The BB calls, and shows the King of spades. Simon proudly flips over the 7s-4s, for a straight flush.

Iwan Jones sends Vicky Coren home when his 6d-7d makes a straight on the flop 8s-9d-10s. Vicky shows American Airlines, but as we all know, the airline industry is hurting, as were Vicky's Aces. The board provides Vicky no-help, and she leaves the table off into the night.…But not for long, as I saw her playing 2-5 NL Hold'em later in the evening.

Greg Raymer's exit came when he pushed his last few chips in the middle of the table with A-10 against his opponent's A-Q. 5 blank cards on the table, and Raymer would have to go find another game.

Markus Golser sends former boy band star Brian McFadden out of the tournament when his jack high straight beat McFadden's pocket Kings.

Tony G made a straight when his 5s-7h found 6h-2d-4h-8c-kh against his opponent's 4d-5c, sending his opponent home.

Most of the name players bit the dust during their session on day two 'B'. A couple of the notable survivors were Marcel Luske, Luca Pagano, and Noah Boeken.

With 109 players remaining, and needing to get down to the final table today, Day 2 promises to be a long day. Chip counts, and the tournament payout structure are below. See everyone tomorrow.
