23 players started the penultimate day of the PokerStars EPT Prague Main Event yesterday but just eight are still in contention for the €640,000 first prize.
Leading the way is a 38-year-old estate agent from Pineto, Marco Leonzio. The Italian finished the day with a stack of 5.075m chips, over 1m ahead of nearest challenger Peter Skripka who has 4.010m. Team PokerStars Pro Marcin Horecki is next on 3.29m followed by another Italian, Emiliano Bono who has a stack of 1.55m. Swansea's Roberto Romanello came close to EPT glory in Copenhagen last year, eventually finishing sixth. The Welshman made the money in Barcelona last month too and is nicely positioned to do even better in the Czech capital sitting as he is in fifth place with 1.22m chips.Rounding out the final table are the third Italian Roberto Nulli who has 745,000, Frenchman Manuel Bevand on 615,000 and Slovakia's Jan Bendik who is the short stack with 445,000. One name notable for its absence is Kevin MacPhee. The long time chip leader was gunning for an unprecedented EPT double but busted out in ninth place as the final table bubble boy. €40,000 should provide the American with a sliver of consolation though.All eight players returning for the final table are guaranteed at least €54,000 with the winner set to take home a lovely Christmas bonus of €640,000. Will the Italian amateur keep his nerve? Will Roberto Romanello bring another major title back to Britain? Will it be mushrooms, fried onion rings? We'll have to wait and see.Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
