After 5 days of play, the EPT San Remo main event field has been narrowed down from 837 to 8 players. These 8 players will in a few hours time return to the theatre of Casino San Remo and fight for a first prize worth €800,000. Daniel Nielson, from Australia, will bring the largest stack to the final table. With 6,7 million chips Nielson has about a 2,3 million lead over Dimitar Danchev, from Russia, in second place.
The final table line up: (seat, name, chips)
1. Andrey Pateychuk, Russia, 3,105,000
2. Kevin MacPhee, United States, 1,115,000
3. Barny Boatman, United Kingdom, 2,490,000
4. Daniel Nielson, Australia, 6,700,000
5. Rocco Palumbo, Italy, 1,160,000
6. Yorane Kerignard, France, 2,145,000
7. Dimitar Danchev, Bulgaria, 4,435,000
8. Jan Bendik, Slovakia, 3,980,000
As you can see above, neither Johnny Lodden, Lex Velhuis, Elio Fox or Chris McClung, the Day 3 and 4 chip leader, made it to the final table. A big disappointment for many of their fans since they did extremely well until Day 5 when there were only 24 remaining players.
Now, one of the most interesting players to follow on the final table today will defiantly be Kevin MacPhee. MacPhee (picture) won the EPT Berlin main event last year and took home an amazing first place prize of €1,000,000. Now he has the chance to write poker history as the first player ever to win two EPT Main Events. But it will be a tough struggle for the American since he's short stacked and needs to double up quick to stay in the game.
