EPT Madrid Main Event: Eugene Yanayt leads the field
Alex Gomes, ept madrid main event, Eugene Yanayt, Ramdin.
Posted on 11 May 2011 by "T".
24 players have chips left and now we're only one day away from the final table where some serious cash is up for grabs. The 2 most notable players in the remaining field are Team PokerStars Pros Victor Ramdin from USA and Alex Gomes from Brazil. Things have changed quite a bit in the top of the field since the start of Day 3. Ole-Kristian Nergard, the Day 3 chip leader from Norway, is in 23rd place with only 105k left, and Kristoffer Thorson, the Day 3 runner-up, is no longer in the tournament. Nothing worked for the Swede during Day 3 and ended up in 56th place for €25,000.
The current chip leader is Eugene Yanayt, from USA, with 2,374,000 chips and his closest opponent is Torsten Brinkmann, from Germany, with a 1,959,000 stack. All of the remaining players are guaranteed €40,000 each. The winner will walk away with €1,500,000, which is one of the top first place prizes in EPT history. Most of the remaining players have experience in playing big tournaments with huge prize pools, so we can expect the rest of the tournament to a quite even story where anyone can win.

| I was counting on watching more news about portuguese players in this EPT, but looks like those who went there didn't go too far. Bad for them, portuguese poker will continue to be something connected with the underground culture.|

| I was almost 100% sure Victor Ramidin will go deep in this main event of the EPT Madrid. he is one of the top tournament poker players in the world right now, great performances both on live poker and online for that matter. I was sure this kind of tournaments will attract a lot of people from united states, both pro poker players from pokerstars but also other poker players. That kid from Norway really played good for his tournament of this size, lets hope we'll see him in the online world too.|
As for players from Spain and Portugal i think they are better as cash games players, i observed they are pretty loose compared to other poker players, i think this si the main reason for which they don't go very deep on poker tournaments.
