Yesterday the 4th day of the EPT Madrid Main Event was played. After many hours of play, the 24-player field had been narrowed down to 8 players and the tournament director called it a day. In a few hours, it's finally time for the final table to start. Up for grabs is a first place prize of €1,5 million, which is one of the top prizes in EPT history.
Team PokerStars Pro Alex Gomes is the biggest name on the final table. He has the chance to be the third ever winner of poker's "triple crown." The 28-year-old Brazilian already has a WPT title (Bellagio Cup 2009) and a WSOP bracelet ($2,000 NL 2008). However, it won't be an easy mission to complete since he's in 6th place with 1.67 million chips and far behind the top 2 players, Ivan Freitez (5.99 million) and Juan Maceiras (3,15 million).
At 14:00 CET you can watch the final table live on pokerstars.tv. When the final table is down to four players the tournament will go on a break and resume at 23:00 CET with hole cards up.
