EPT Dublin: At the break

November 03, 2007

At the break Thierry van den Berg is in the mood for talking. After a rough count (read very rough) he has a stack of over 400k and got there thanks to a few good hands and a good read.

“I’m doing really well so I’ll hopefully make the final.”

It’s looking that way but his table is a tough one, with Annette Obrestad and Andy Black, both with a mountain of chips, sitting either side of him.

“It’s funny” he said. “Three of the players from my table on day one are still here!”
