EPT Copenhagen: The first waltz. . .

February 17, 2009

Luca Pagano occupies one of the least favoured seats in the field today, immediately to the right of Portugal’s Joao Barbosa. Needless to say Barbosa, who plays with an air of bewilderment, is re-raising his way to some early pots, forcing others out of the action; a plan used to similar effect a few tables along…

Albert Iversen, a dead ringer for The Band’s Robbie Robertson, was looking down the barrel of a 650 raise from Vijayan Nagarajan in late position after a few limpers had jumped for a bargain. From under-the-gun Iversen, who shot to EPT recognition following a final table finish at the EPT Budapest, raised to 2,050. The action was on its way back to Nagarajan but not before Adam Levitan got in on things from seat one, calling Iversen and putting an end to Nagarajan’s plans at the same time.

The flop came [3S]-[8S]-[3H]. First to act, Levitan put in another 2,050 and waited for Iversen to decide. And waited. Iversen was playing with two red chips for a few minutes, staring at the table for a while before deciding on a raise to 4,750. It had the desired effect.

“Can you beat two jacks?” asked Levitan, to no reply. He mucked. Iversen up in level one.
