Aliaksei Boika and Ihar Soika have a very similar last name, are from the same country and look somewhat alike. This is enough to confuse the duo from time to time, while the victory of Boika in the EPT13 Main Event only a few months ago makes it easier to identify him.
Both Boika and Soika signed up for the Single-Day High Roller and the screens currently show 58 entries, of which 56 remain. Boika already has a big score to his name during the festival in Prague as well after coming fourth in the initial €10,300 High Roller for a payday of € 218,944.
Dario Sammartino also just arrived with a fresh stack and sat down next to Igor Kurganov. Fellow countryman Vladimir Troyanovskiy said "welcome, my friend," with his typical Russian accent. Dong Zhao and Nicolas Chouity are further additions to the field.
