Day 4 started with 3 players with more than a million chips each: Ramzi Jelassi, Chris Brammer and Sotorious Koutoupas. Brammer didn't make it, but both Jelassi (1,975,000 - 3rd place) and Koutoupas (1,450,000 - 8th) pressed on and made it through the day with healthy stacks.

After 9 levels of play in the LE Cannes Croisette Casino, the field of 180 players had been squeezed down to a final table with 9 players. In a big lead is no one else than Sam Trickett with 713,500 chips. Trickett, from UK, has had a fantastic tournament year with 2 big cashes at Aussie Millions in January, and in total he has won over $3 million dollars this year. If Trickett takes home this final table today, he will take home another €238k!
But it won't be a walk in the park for the British poker pro as there are some amazing players on the final table today. One player that most probably will be his toughest opponent though is Ramzi Jelassi from Sweden. Jelassi has been around the live tournament scene since 2005 and has managed to take down quite a few tournaments all over the globe.
It almost feels like it was yesterday that the main event of EPT Monte Carlo started, but here we are, 4 days later, with only 24 remaining players. Among these 24 players, who have survived a field of 848 players, we find notables such as Nick Schulman and Ramzi Jelassi. Unfortunately neither of them are in the top of the felt at the moment. But both of them are far more experienced than many of the other remaining players. Lets hope that their routine will be enough to take them all the way to tomorrow's final table. Ladies and gentlemen, some serious prize money is getting closer and closer! It will be a final table not to miss out on tomorrow!
Ramzi Jelassi, 22, from Sweden, won IPT (Italian Poker Tour) in San Remo yesterday and took home the first prize of 170,000 EURO. This is Ramzi's second big title in the previous 8 months. In December he won the side event to EPT Prag and received around 130,000 EURO. Ramzi Jelassi, also did very well in this year's WSOP Main Event, but unfortunately he went out before the really BIG MONEY (425th place - $27,469).
FINAL TABLE RESULTS: 1 Ramzi Jelassi - €170 000 2 Andrea Sapere - €100 000 3 Francesco Veronese - €68 000 4 Massimo Di Cicco - €50 000 5 Giuseppe Pipino - €39 000 6 Roberto Pompei - €28 000 7 Claudio Rinaldi - €18 000 8 Niccolò Domeniconi - €13 000
