And what a journey it has been. We had a record field of RedKings players at the start, traveling here from all over the world. Out of the magic 6, 4 made it through to the second day all with a hope and a big chance of getting to the top 40 players who got money, some with even higher expectations.
Joao Gabriel Fernandes got completely card dead on the second day, which made it hard for him to get to the end of the day. He finished around 70th position, and that is a great success for his first EPT tournament. Our Swedish pro player Jonas “Molle” Molander was next guy to leave the tournament, when he made a move on the player that now is on the final table top 4, J. Nevanlinna.
Then we had 2 players left, Ramzi Jelassi and Toni Ojala. Toni making his second cash in a row, and 3rd for the season, look at those stats 3/7 this year, that is sick. Now we are just waiting for the big one. Too bad for Toni that he was the first player to leave to the rail on day 3, about €9000 richer. Ramzi were in for a long time until he got a bad beat on the featured table, and Ramzi left in 20th position with €16000 in his pocket.
Team RedKings is growing, and so is our reputation. The team is now one of the biggest on the tour, and this week we have added three players to Team RedKings, Ivo “The Chessmaster” Donev, Christian Heich and Per Linde. Now with the White Label EU-License, Team RedKings and also with a lot of bad players online (fish), more and more players are choosing to start or continue their poker carriers at RedKings.com. You will always be able to follow the Teams progress here in the blog, and also their own thoughts about the tournaments and their life in their own blogs!
