2010 EPT Deauville: Eastgate, ElkY Among Final 24

Laetitia Casta is impressed with what she's seen from her countrymen on the poker circuit in recent years.

Day 4 of the 2010 EPT Deauville wrapped, with the field now down to 24 players.

The overnight chip leader is Teodor Caraba with 3,200,000. He’s followed by George Secara with 1,517,000.

A few big names are still among the big stacks. 2008 WSOP Main Event champ Peter Eastgate is stacked at 1,211,000, former EPT winner Mike McDonald has 1,183,000, and Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier takes 1,056,000 to Day 5.

On a side note, hats off to all of the Frenchies like EklY showing up and playing well in the homeland. If the French army last century was made up of the likes of ElkY, Antoine Saout, and Benjo, well, you know.

Also still remaining are Freddy Deeb (628,000) and Shane Schleger (584,000).
