EPT Grand Final: Jose Carlos Garcia Leads Star-Filled Field To Day 4

Tags: EPT Grand Final, Jose Carlos Garcia.
Posted on 06 May 2015 by "T".

114 players returned for the third day of the PokerStars and Monte-Carlo Casino EPT Grand Final Main Event. After five 90-minute levels of play, the day ended with 34 remaining players and Jose Carlos Garcia, the overall Day 1 chip leader, out in front with 1.71 million in chips.

Garcia was the first player to surpass 1 million in chips on Day 3, and he's the only player closing in on two million at the moment (mainly thanks to him winning a massive pot at the end of Day 3). The fact is that only one other player, Connan Drinan (1,065,000) has over one million in chips.

Schemion, Lodden & MercierThe plan for Day 4, which begins at noon local time, is to play until the end of Level 24 or until 16 players remain. The remaining players are guaranteed to take home at least €26,500 each and the last man standing will get €1,082,000!

With so many notables left in the tournament (have a look at the chip counts below and you know what we are talking about) we don't even want to speculate in who will stand tall as the winner on Friday.

There really are some notable players left in this tournament and trying to pick a winner at this stage is nigh on impossible in my opinion. Good luck to all those left in this event

That is a massive chip lead to have at this stage and with only 34 players left he can go into the next day full of confidence.Still some great players left and Schemion and Lodden are not too far behind and I think Garcia is lacking in their experience in these massive tournaments.

Ninety minute levels must be a pain in the ass literally. I get bored on cash tables easily, so a level which does not change it's blinds and pace for a whole ninety minutes would kill me.
Or the antes would eat me anyway. This is why I don't go for deep stacked touries either.
