56 players became 17 players during Day 4 of the European Poker Tour Berlin main event and, unfortunately, many notables were among the ones who didn't make it: Liv Boeree, Sandra Naujoks, Boris Becker, Day 1 chip leader Rony Voth and the Finnish Day 2 and Day 3 chip leader Aku Joenausta.

The biggest names left in the tournament are former EPT Champion Kevin Stani (832,000), Olivier Busquet (736,000) and Calvin Anderson (561,000). Roman Herold, of Germany, is the new chip leader with 4,485,000 chips. In one of the final hands of Day 4, he and his fellow countryman Alexander Helbig (chip leader at the time) played a massive pot...

Picking up with the action on the flop of 2Spade9SpadeAHeart, Helbig checked and Herold bet 84,000. Helbig raised to 180,000 and Herold called. The turn card was the 6Diamond and Helbig bet 375,00 straight away. Herold decided to make the call after a few minutes of thinking.

A 7Diamond completed the board and Helbig pushed half a million chips towards the middle of the table. "Wanted a spade," said Herold. "But the seven helped me." Herold made the call.

Helbig turned over a AClub2Heart for a flopped 2 pair, and Herold rolled over ASpade7Spade for a rivered two pair. Herold's supporters went nuts as he suddenly had the chip lead!

Day 5 chip counts:

Roman Herold Germany 4 485 000
Dashgyn Aliev Russia 3 931 000
Khiem Nguyen Germany 2 788 000
Alexander Helbig Germany 2 040 000

Daniel Pidun wins EPT Berlin,a local amateur player who has a remarkable record in this event. In 2011 he came 9th for €45,000 and in 2012 he came 17th for €20,000.
This time he did even better by winning the title and €880,000 when he defeated Robert Haigh heads-up.
