World Series of Poker Europe Main Event

A friend of mine, Tablecleaner will be playing in London today, in the 1b-field. This is one of the most prestigious tournaments there is, with a buy-in of 10 000 pounds, and a sky-is-the-limit first price. The tournament began yesterday and will continue well into the coming week, until ten players reach the final table and will play for the highest payouts, and a prestige that can’t really be measured. I have long since congratulated him for qualifying to this one through satellites, which is extremely hard to do, and want to wish him good luck tonight and subsequent nights. He will need it, in an extremely professional and hard field. There is precedence for fairly unknown players going deep in these tournaments, though. This was, for instance the tournament Annette Obrestad won last year.

Tablecleaner is fairly well known on the Norwegian and European circuit, and his taken name is very accurate. May he set London on fire…
