Posted on 28 January 2014 by "T".

Both starting days at the 2014 European Poker Tour Deauville Main Event (played at Casino Barriere [France]) are in the books. Day 1A saw 234 runners and 433 players signed up for Day 1B and approximately 380 players will return to the poker tables today at noon. Ayman Zbib of Lebanon is the overall chip leader with a stack of 181,400; he will be joined today by several big names in the poker world, including Team PokerStars Pros Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier (picture - dressed up as a popular video game character for Day 1B. Can you guess who?) and Alex Kravchenko of Russia.

Registration will remain open until the beginning of Day 2, so we will know the final number of entrants (and prizepool) later on today. We will be back with another brief report tomorrow morning.

Why not even dressed as Super Mario? Or Napoleon (the brandy not the historical figure Big Smile)?
If costumes became standard in poker I expect at least three Boba Fetts playing in the final table of the WSOP.
But I can see that maybe he has some sort of sponsor deal with the gaming firm too.

haha it adds more fun to the tables, better play with players that are disguised as fictional characters as it adds funs to the tables, it gives the opportunity for great moment to happens rather than staring down 9 people with sunglasses lol

Elky must be desperate to do well in this event. This must be a great opportunity for him to try and impress his fellow Frenchmen in their home event. Good luck to all those who are playing and i will be looking forward to the updates
