We are not talking about the title of the cheesy soft-rock anthem of the 80's, but the countdown to something much bigger and badder! It is of course Day 1a of the World Poker Tour's stop at Amneville in Northern France.
Last years competition was dominated by the French with no less than five Frenchman (including one Frenchwoman) reaching the final table. 542 players entered last years competition and despite the French attack, the event was won by a man from Switzerland - Sam El Sayed taking down the top prize for $594,627.
The schedule is to play eight 60-minute levels with a 15-minute break every two levels. There will be no dinner break today, meaning we will finish play at around 20.45 tonight giving the players plenty of time to have a beer or twelve!
