EPT Deauville: Hey, Otto man

January 22, 2009

Yesterday Michael Fratty sat through several levels of play watching movies on a portable DVD player. He said very little, appearing to be oblivious to the game, keeping himself to himself behind a cool exterior.

Cut to today where we just saw, check that, heard the flip side – a raging inner beast that just splurged through his pores after a big and victorious pot…

“(French expletive deleted) … (Indecipherable)… Qu’est que c’est?!!” he said, adding a certain Je ne sais quoi to proceedings, leaping up the chip charts on 80,000.

While Otto Richard enjoys the comforts and privileges that go with a big stack – two bottles of water, a can of coke and 110,000 chips – the others at his table do the all-in square dance, Tomor Lidor taking his turn next, allowing himself a loud affirmative and a double raised fist shake after doubling up with pocket nines against PokerStars qualifier Janek Schliecher. Good to keep Lidor alive as players pause for the first break.
