Although he isn't officially a PokerStars Team Pro member yet, Georgios Kapalas is certainly on his way to becoming one.
Kapalas is one of the three "PokerStars Greece Challengers" who is competing to become a Team Pro representative from Greece. The PokerStars website explains, "Stavros 'IDOLLS' Kalfas, George 'gkap13' Kapalas and Alexis '[email protected]@' Zervos are competing to determine which one of them is the best all around player this year. The Challenge will take into account results from the European Poker Tour (EPT), SCOOP and WCOOP, as well as overall tournament performance both live and online."
In a recent hand, a player in middle position pushed all in for 24,000, the hijack called, and Kapalas pushed all in as well having both players covered. The hijack called off the rest of his chips and the hands were tabled.
The board ran true for Kapalas when it came and he eliminated both the other players. After the hand his stack grew to 310,000 so it seems that he is our current chipleader.
Kapalas will obviously be helped in his challenge to become a PokerStars Team Pro by a deep run in today's tournament. We'll be keeping our eyes on him to see what develops!
