Liv Boeree was in, then she was out and, finally, she was in again as Day 1B of PokerStars EPT Deauville entered its latter stages.
After a bad batch of mussels gave her food poisoning, Liv withdrew from yesterday’s action. However, after following the action from her hotel room she decided to summon her inner grinder and get into the action.Playing alongside 474 other players it looked as though Liv might make it through the day; however, trip ace against her opponent’s full house was enough to send her to the rail just minutes before the end of the day. As Liv headed for the rail she could take some consolation in the fact her boyfriend, Kevin MacPhee, busted out at almost the same time. While Liv and Kevin headed back to their hotel room, David Ostrom finished the day at the top of the chip counts with 212,600. Indeed, his haul was enough to place him as overall chip leader ahead of 418 other players going into Day 2. Today’s action will begin later when the remaining players will all be aiming to move one step closer to the €770,000 first place prize. The Day 1B chip leaders were as follows:David Ostrom 212,600 Casey Kastle 204,000 Jesper Feddersen 188,900 Ahmed Abd El Fatah 185,000 Karim Abdelmoumene 175,800 Andrey Baturin 162,300 Philippe Boucher 160,700 Ferit Gabriellson 152,200 Cyril Andre 150,000 Paul Guichard 147,200Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
