EPT Prague: Only 1 former champion through to Day 4

The record field of 722 players has been narrowed down to 31 after 4 days of poker (Day 1a & 1b, Day 2, Day 3) The 3 first days ended with a Russian in the lead. But that tradition came to an end yesterday and now the chip leader is Partrik Renkers from Netherlands. Renkers had a fantastic winning streak during Day 3 and today a 2.4 million stack is waiting for him at the Hilton poker room. The player in second place, Martin Finger from Germany, has about half of that stack.

Unfortunately many former EPT champs hit the rail during Day 3, Nicolas Chourity (101), LIv Boeree (83), Kent Lundmark (75), Rupert Elder (62) and Anton Wigg (33). The only surviving champ is now Mike McDonald (picture) from USA. McDonald will bring 740,000 chips today (14th place) and will have to play extremely good to be among the 9 finalists, who will fight for a first prize of amazing €775,000!

McDonald is in the middle of the list, he still have a chance to go to the final table, although being a bit far from the leader's stack. Most probable, this tourneys final table will be filled with strangers, but that doesnt mean they dont know what to do to give a good show and try to win the bigest prize possible.

Good luck to all finalists, and may the best poker player win this tournament. I hope that the dutch player will win the trophy.

Just love those big tourneys. Every poker player dream. Every player who learns game and grows a bankroll, gets there. No doubt
