EPT Dortmund: Kravchenko’s charge

March 11, 2009

Alexander Kravchenko has been making his characteristic steady, silent, ominous progress through day 1a and has recently hit his high water mark for the day, something in the region of 25,000. He got it all in pre-flop with A-Q against an opponent’s K-K and it was something of a roller coaster before it was done.

A queen flopped, giving Kravchenko another couple of outs, on a board that also contained a 10. A king turned, giving a set to his opponent but an inside straight draw to the Team PokerStars Pro. And then a jack rivered which completed the Broadway. And now Kravchenko is gunning again.

Also making headway here is William Reynolds, the American player we first encountered on the EPT in Copenhagen last month. Reynolds was flying there and looked set to mark his EPT debut with a cash, but he suddenly vanished and went home empty handed. Undeterred, Reynolds is back – and back among the chips. He has in the region of 30,000 at the moment, which is a pretty good foundation if he’s looking to take some cash back to Sioux City, Iowa.
