Not Feeling Veli Well

Newly appeared in the tournament area (the initial registration queue is just now beginning to dwindle) are another Day 1a casualty, Daragh Davey, and MPNPT regular Julie Whitworth, today taking her first stab at this particular Main Event.

Also in the field is one Veli-Pekka Alakorva, a familiar face on the Finnish poker circuit, who’s been running particularly hot of late, taking down several mid-sized events in Helsinki this year. His winning streak looks like it might be over here in Tallinn though – I just witnessed him doubling up another player with Ks-Js versus Qs-Qc in some sort of interesting-move-gone-wrong scenario, the board reading 5d-7d-2s-5s-3d by the end. Alakorva is down to less than 4k now – although it’s worth noting that the unlimited rebuy format means that for those with deep pockets, anything is possible until registration closes at 1pm tomorrow.
