Yeah Jason was lucky on that hand like him as a player and hope he does well in other tournaments he plays , anyway on another note the EPT is getting more and more popular and more entries than last year, showing poker is on the rise and you can still make money if you evolve right and stay in touch as poker is constantly changing nowadays but still the best game in the world!

Nice prizepool and nice moneys awarded. I watched the stream in Pokerstars TV on earlier days about 45 minutes delayed and were nice fights and they not really focused on the size of the money they played for this was so professional and this was good to see. Hope a greet freeroll league fight for October as well during next EPT event.
