James Dempsey, Liv Boeree involved in Big Hands

James Dempsey and Liv Boeree have certainly provided some excitement early on in Day 1B of the 2012 English Poker Open. Beginning with Dempsey, he got involved in a large pot with “Pedram” while holding Kd-Jd on a flop of Jh-4h-Ts. The Brighton native bet 1,700 chips while Pedram (AA) called with the better pair.

Trickett busts First Player on EPO Feature Table

We were only a few hours into the 2012 English Poker Open when Sam Trickett busted somebody at the feature table. While holding pocket 5’s, Trickett was the recipient of a great flop as the cards were dealt A-5-Q. After flopping a set, Sam bet out 1,600 chips, only to be reraised by the highly-aggressive Ajay Ramesh (A-Q) with 3,500. Trickett then went all-in and was called by Ramesh and his two pair.
