Although various players had the chip lead during Day 4, Tom Middleton once again bagged up the lead at the end of play. The Englishman started Day 3 with 1,030,000 chips (the only player with 1m+ chips) and will bring nothing less than 3,986,000 chips to Day 4, which will see 24 players returning to the tables.
Unfortunately none of the former EPT winners survived Day 4 (Mikalai Pobal 79th place, Kent Lundmark 64th place & Dimitar Danchev 44th place), so now we will have to wait until EPT London in October to see whether a first-ever two-time main event champion will be crowned.
Now, all the remaining players are guaranteed at least €29,270 each - with the chance of taking home the first place prize of an incredible €1,067,000! We will be back with a final table recap on Monday morning. Stay tuned!
