Christopher McClung, from Canada, arrived as chip leader when Day 4 of EPT San Remo kicked off yesterday. When the day had come to an end, McClung had boosted his 1,2 million stack to an amazing 3,1 million - most of those chips came from a hand when he knocked out Joseph Cheong with flush vs set of kings. McClung's 3,1 million stack gives him a 1.1 million lead over Daniel Neilson in 2nd place.
Just as planned, the Day 4 field was played down to 24 players who will return to the poker room today and play it down to a final table, which will take place tomorrow with live stream. Among the players who still have chips left one can find quite a few interesting names. Just to mention a few: Barny Boatman with 1,25 million, Johnny Lodden with 1,2 million, Lex Veldhuis with 877k, and Elio Fox with 377k.
