EPT Says "Czesc!" To Poland

 EPT Says

Friday, 14 November 2008

The third stop on Season Five of the EPT bowled into Warsaw today for the EPT Polish Open 2008. The tournament, which concludes on Tuesday, will be capped at 400 players who will play for a total prize pool of up to PLN 8,000,000 or approx. $2,700,000.

The buy-in for the tournament amounts to PLN 21,000 or approx. $7,000. According to the official website of the EPT a lot of stars are heading to Warsaw for the next stop on the Pokerstars.com European Poker Tour. Among the top players set to compete at the four-day event are Team PokerStars Pros Gavin Griffin, the EPT Grand Final winner in Season 4, EPT Player of the Year Luca Pagano, PCA Champion Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier, William Thorson, Season 3 Warsaw finalist Katja Thater, EPT London finalist Marcin Horecki, Dario Minieri, Alex Kravchenko and Isabelle Mercier.

We like sticking our necks on the line with predictions which frankly astound the poker public with their ability to be remarkably inaccurate, but we're going to do it anyway. Bertrand Grospellier has been running like Linford Christie in a hurry recently, winning the WPT Festa al Lago just a few weeks back. So long as he doesn't dress up like the Joker again, we reckon he's got a decent shot to make it a WPT and EPT double in Poland.
