Posted on 20 April 2010 by "T".

It took less than 6 hours of play before Day 4 of EPT San Remo came to an end. The final three tables are now set, and there are 24 players left in the tournament. Allan Baekke, EPT Snowfest winner, played fantastic poker during day 4 and he's now in a big lead with 3,483,000 chips. In second and third place are Dermot Blain (2,568,000) and Dmitry Stelmak (2,284,000). Yesterday, we were writing that many swedes had been doing extremely well in the tournament.

Well, they are still doing well, even though neither of them are in the very top anymore. Anyhow, 4 of 5 who started the day still have a good chance of making it to tomorrow's final table. However, I really doubt that anyone of them will win the tournament if the top 3 players (Allan Baekke, Dermot Blain, Dmitry Stelmak) at the moment continue playing this well. I think one of them will take down the tournament.

Dermot Blain, a 25-year-old ex-sales manager from Ireland, won PokerStars third season main event of APPT Macau. He won his entry to the tournament by playing a PokerStars Macau satellite. When he had made it to the final table he was in 7th place with just 507,000 chips. At this time no one thought he would stay in the tournament for long. The turnaround for Blain came when he eliminated the start of the day chip leader with A-K vs A-Q.

When the table was down to heads-up, it only took Blain 4 hands to knockout his final opponent Mike Kim. Mike Kim, went all-in preflop with T-9 and got called by Blain who had K-T. The board ran cold for both players and Blain's King kicker gave him the win and $541,000. Mike Kim, received 385,000 for his second place.
