As of now, all those still left in the Main Event at EPT Prague are comfortably in the money.
But before that money bubble bursts the tension couldn’t be higher as players cling to chips in an effort to not be the unfortunate jerk who goes “all that way” for absolutely nothing but a story of heartbreak.
When you are at a big time tournament like an EPT and there’s only one player left until the money – the media frenzy can get intense. Check out this sick photo by Ukranian cover boy and Team PokerStars Pro Eugene Katchlov of what an “all-in and a call” looked like at his table, from his perspective.
Not all-in, but clearly in the photo is poker pro Shannon Shorr (in the 2 seat). He took some time to walk down memory lane with PokerNews about some of his sickest bubble experiences and even talk a little strategy about how to approach the bubble – despite not having a plan himself.
