British Highs and British Lows

If form was only based on the last three days then Chris Brammer and Chris Sly are two of the hottest players on the planet.

Brammer came to Sanremo on the back of his 5th place finish for €207,648 at the World Series of Poker Europe, and Sly took down the €2k PLO last night for more than €50k.

Brammer is going along very nicely with 88,000 chips, partly thanks to raising Wilfried Harig off his hand on a {5-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} flop.

Sly was going along very nicely earlier on but is struggling a bit now. He dropped to 22,500 after doubling up Marius Pospiech. The latter shoved for his last 8,325 on the river of a {2-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{a-Clubs}{3-Hearts} board. Sly called with {a-Spades}{5-Clubs} only to be shown {a-Hearts}{2-Hearts} by Pospiech.
