EPT Prague: Max Silver Leads Last 22 in Main Event; Lacay Eliminated in 33rd Place

22 of 61 players made it through Day 4 of the EPT Prague Main Event and unfortunately Ludovic Lacay, the 2012 EPT Sanremo winner, is no longer in the contest. The French poker star had a decent chip lead when Day 4 kicked off and he picked up where he'd left off in Day 3. However, things changed drastically when he called Max Silver's all-in with pocket kings. Silver showed the best starting hand in the game of Texas Hold'em and Lacay ended up losing a significant chunk of his stack. Eventually, Lacay bused in 33rd place by Ori Hansson.

Silver, on the other hand, dominated play until only 22 players remained and the tournament director called it a day. Silver, of UK, will bring close to 4 million chips to Day 5, more than 1 million chips clear of his closest opponent, and he now has great chance of taking down the biggest cash of his career! His biggest live tournament cash to date is $153k, so a 6th place finish (€160,200) would be enough to break the previous record. However, he could win much more than that as the winner of the tournament will take home a first place prize of €889,000!

Its a shame that Ludovic Lacay didnt make it through as it would be nice to finally see a two time winner on the EPT. Its going to be interesting to see who eventually wins this tournament

Too bad he could not take advantage of the chip advantage that he had earlier in the game but oh well, this is poker, you never know what will happen.

Well it also seems that on this edition also no one will have two EPT titles in his poker career. Still it's a pretty nice event to watch.

well it's really pain in ass for a good player with decent stack to stay in a tournament to get into such a trap hand , Hopefully next time
