EPT Berlin Main Event Latest

Friday, 26 April 2013

With the Main Event trophy glinting on the horizon and the money jumps getting ever larger there was a decided air of tension during Day 4 of EPT Berlin.

Indeed, while Aku Joentausta would be one of the main threats for the title, his domination came to an end midway through the day. Having lead the pack after Day 2 and Day 3, the Finnish pro finally bowed out in 31st place after his Ad Jc fell victim to Roman Herold’s As 6h on a Ah 6s 5s 9c 7s board.

That pot not only saw Joentausta hit the rail, but Herold scoop a healthy portion of chips on his way to a table-topping session. At the close of play the German pro managed to bag 4,485,000 chips and occupy first place on the daily leaderboard ahead of Dashgyn Aliev (3,931,000).

Also still in contention when time was called on the session was Kevin Stani and Olivier Busquet who will be looking to take the Berlin title back to the US.

While Herold et al thrived on Day 4, a number of other pros fell by the wayside, including a trio of females in the shape of Sandra Naujoks (54th – €15,000), Liv Boeree (48th – €15,000) and Natalie Hof (39th – €18,000).
Today’s session will play down to a final table before a winner is crowned on Saturday.
