The first stop of the World Poker Tour’s new season gets under way today with a $1 million guaranteed Main Event in northern Cyprus.
Known as the bwin WPT Merit Cyprus Classic, the $4,400 tournament is expected to feature a number of notable pros, including the Mizrachi brothers, Sam Trickett and Daniel “Jungleman” Cates. However, before tournament fever took hold of the travelling pros’ attention, a marathon cash game session took place yesterday. Organised by PartyPoker as part of their regular “Big Game” series, the event featured the likes of Trickett, Cates, Marvin Rettenmaier and Dominik Nitsche. With the blinds set at $50/$100 with a $200 straddle the action was fast-paced from the start but for the Trickett it’s a match he’d rather forget. Despite being one of the most accomplished cash game players at the table, he failed to move above the profit line after bricking “every flop”. Also failing to make a profit in the game was defending WPT Cyprus Champion, Marvin Rettenmaier. Despite entering the game with high hopes, the German pro eventually headed back to his hotel room with a $15,000 sized hole in his pocket. According to those railing the game, Roger Hairabedian was one of the biggest winners, topping the likes of Cates and Dominik Nitsche who didn’t fare as well as they might have expected. Now that the cash game frivolities have finished the tournament action can begin and continue until a winner is crowned on August 21.
