EPT Deauville: Dario Sammartino leads the way into Day 3; Eugene Katchalov in 5th place

144 players of 671 entries remain after 3 action-packed days (1A, 1B and 2) of poker in Casino Barriere in France. There's a sweet €3.22 million prize pool up for grabs and the money bubble will burst when 95 players remain. A minimum cash is worth €9,500 and the eventual winner will take home €614,000, a Slyde watch, and a huge trophy!

Dario Sammartino (picture above) is the chip leader with 427,000 in chips. The Italian pro is best known for his runner-up finish in an IPT Main Event, a 19th place finish in the EPT Season 9 Grand Final, and a third-place finish earlier this week in the France Poker Series (FPS) Deauville High Roller for €63,800!

Besides Sammartino, one should keep an eye on Team PokerStars Pro Eugene Katchalov (picture on the right) during Day 3. Katchalov, from Ukraine, is currently ranked 5th with 345,700 chips and he's not only looking to take home the massive first prize but also to complete the Triple Crown! It's a long way to go, but nothing is impossible in the poker world!

yea been watching some action live myself too, just now there were 2 sick suckouts, someone catched a runner runner straight vs AK and the other guy lost with AK vs AQ on K10K flop. so its not just online play with those suckouts, and when we consider how many more hands we actually play online vs those live tourney hands, ofc its gonna be more suckouts with higher volume played.

ah and one guy just went out to cool himself he was steaming lol, wasnt knocked out though, just steaming after his AK lost to runner runner J7 straight Big Smile

Eugene is a great live tournament poker player for sure, he also plays pretty good online as i remember his heads up match with Viktor Blom.

It's pretty nice that this event managed to gather some good names and also the prize pool is pretty tempting Big Smile

It will be pretty interesting to see how the action will unfold!
