Only 16 players remain after 4 days of intensive play at the EPT Deauville Main Event. The remaining players have already outlasted 96% of the field, but only 50% of the remaining players will make it to the final table. Sotirios Koutiupas holds the lead heading into Day 5 with 2.6 million in chips. The Greek poker professional had a runner-up finish at EPT9 Prague. Will he get his first EPT title now?
Now, the biggest name among the remaining 16 is, of course, Team PokerStars Pro Eugene Katchalov from Ukraine. Katchalov will enter the 5th day of play 10th in chips with a below average 1 million. However, he is by far the most experienced of the remaining players, so don't be surprised if he's among the finalists tomorrow, fighting for the first prize of €614,00, a Slyde watch, the trophy and not to forget Poker's Triple Crown! (EPT, WPT and WSOP titles).
