EPT Grand Final: 15 Players Left - Johnny Lodden Out In Front!

Tags: EPT Grand Final, Johnny Lodden.
Posted on 07 May 2015 by "T".

15 of 34 players made it through Day 4, moving one step closer to the final table. Team PokerStars Johnny Lodden started the day with 728k and finished with 2,293,000, which means that he's the chip leader heading to Day 5. The Norwegian finished third in this event two seasons ago for €467,000, he now sits in a great position to top that result.

Here are the remaining players of the PokerStars and Monte-Carlo Casino EPT Grand Final Main Event:

Johnny Lodden, Norway, 2,293,000
Markus Ross, Germany, 1,815,000
Adrian Mateos, Spain, 1,635,000
Koichi Nozaki, Japan, 1,582,000
Hady El Asmar, Lebanon, 1,530,000
Muhyedine Fares, Senegal, 1,280,000
Ole Schemion, Germany, 1,178,000
Lyndon Basha, United Kingdom, 1,070,000
Dmitry Ivanov, Russia, 994,000
Anton Astapau, Belarus, 896,000
Romain Paon, France, 782,000
Christopher Frank, Germany, 645,000
Jose Carlos Garcia, Poland, 523,000
Juan Martin Pastor, Argentina, 450,000
Tom Hall, United Kingdom, 249,000

Aparently this is the first time players from Japan (Koichi Nozaki - 1,582,000) and Senegal (Muhyedine Fares - 1,280,000) make it this far in an EPT Main Event. "This is the first time that we have had players from Japan and Senegal this deep in an EPT Main Event, so the neutrals should get behind them. It's about time for an Asian and African poker boom, and their success could secure that," said PokerStars blogger Howard Swains.

Great to see Johnny Lodden playing well again because a few years ago he was the biggest name in European poker but he seems to have been off the radar for a while. Good luck to all left in

some unknown names trying to go for the win
we have japan, senegal and lebanon
countries that are not very familiar with poker
it is good to see that poker is getting world-wide fame each day
still they need lot of work if one of them gonna win
15 to go .. it is gonna be interesting
Lodden is a big name back in the day
can he maintain his chip lead and take the trophy

I don't know what happened to Garcia who had a massive chip lead at the start of the day but it appears he got too confident and was losing chips all day but he has made a massive comeback and is now 3rd with 2.5 million chips and Lodden down to 4th.Schemion in 5th with 7 left.

Japan is banned gambling long time ago for any non-yakuza affiliated residents and most people in Africa still happy just from the fact they have a working internet connection. Boom, this...
