EPT Prague Final Table Set
The EPT Prague is down to its final table after another exciting day of play at the Prague Hilton Hotel. The eight hopefuls will return on Saturday with all eyes on the first prize of €640,000.
Whatever happens, a new EPT winner will be guaranteed as the three remaining players already to have captured EPT titles fell away on the penultimate day. First to go was Salvatore Bonavena in the unluckiest of circumstances; getting his chips in with AK against the AKs suited of Peter Skripka, the flop came fairly innocuously, but runner runner spades handed a flush to Skripka and sent the Italian to the rail. He was followed a matter of moments later by Rob Hollink.
That left Kevin MacPhee as the only previous winner still in the tournament. He had begun the day in the lead, but as the tournament progressed his chips gradually bled away. Having tripled up with A3 when he was virtually dead, he shoved next hand with Q9 but ran into Marco Leonzi’s pocket jacks and couldn’t find any help on the board.
There might still be a British winner however – Roberto Romanello safely negotiated proceedings and built his chip stack to a little over 1.2 million to lie fifth overall. The Welshman has been in good form recently with a series of cashes, and a big one seems as though it could be just around the corner.
Seat draw and chip counts for the last eight, all of whom are guaranteed at least €54,550, are as follows:
Seat 1: Marco Leonzio – Italy – 5,075,000
Seat 2: Peter Skripka – Russia – 4,010,000
Seat 3: Roberto Romanello – Wales – 1,220,000
Seat 4: Roberto Nulli – Italy – 745,000
Seat 5: Jan Bendik – Slovakia – 445,000
Seat 6: Emilliano Bono – Italy – 1,530,000
Seat 7: Manuel Bevand – France – 615,000
Seat 8: Marcin Horecki – 3,290,000
