Kevin MacPhee ended up with the chip lead for the second day in a row as the final table of the 2015 WSOP Europe Berlin Main Event was reached on Thursday.
MacPhee started Day 4 with 1.15 million in chips and finished with a massive stack of 5,015,000! As you can imagine he was doing extremly well at the poker tables on Day 4, and he was responsible for the elimination of Erik Seidel to set the official final table of six players.
Seidel, who had the chance of winning a 9th WSOP bracelet, was running very well (for example: he eliminated Day 3 chip leader Dzmitry Urbanovich in 15th place) and had plenty of chips until picking up AK and losing all all in pre-flop against Kevin MacPhee's AA.
MacPhee will bring more than 50% of the chips in play to the final table. He has a great oppurtunity of taking home his second career gold bracelet, but as the old saying goes "it ain't over till it's over". Anything is possible in tournament poker - especially when so many experienced tournament players are competing for a gold bracelet (check final table chip counts below)!
