EPT Prague Champion Martin Finger was just seen talking to some people who were still sitting at their tables playing the tournament. He was talking just a little bit too long with these gentlemen for him to be just sitting out a couple of hands. We asked him if he indeed was eliminated and he was kind enough to tell us the details of his bust out.
Finger had opened with pocket aces from early position and Ludovic Geilich on the button, who won one of the side events during the EPT in Vienna a couple of weeks ago, was the sole caller.
Finger made a continuation bet on -rainbow and Geilich, who had been playing just about every pot according to Finger, made the call. Finger, who had started the hand with 27,000, bet another 3,900 once the popped up on the turn giving him top set. Geilich instantly called.
The river was a and Finger checked. Geilich then snap shoved all in and Finger made the call, only to see him Geilich turn over for the straight.
We might see Finger, who played the €100,000 Super High Roller earlier this week as well, again in the €25,000 High Roller later this week.
