Kevin MacPhee leads EPT Prague

Kevin MacPhee leads EPT Prague

Friday, 17 December 2010

History could be made in Prague this weekend with Kevin MacPhee on course for an unprecedented double.

MacPhee, who won EPT Berlin in March, heads the chip counts with just 23 players remaining at EPT Prague and holds a handy lead over nearest challenger Jan Bendik. There's still plenty of class dotted amongst the remaining players including PokerStars pros Marcin Horecki from Poland and Hungarian Richard Toth. Season one Grand Final winner Rob Hollink from Holland is very much in the hunt too, as is Roberto Romanello who is the sole remaining British player.

Notable names who made the money but busted out included Rasmus Nielsen, Irishman Dermot Blain, Hit Squadee Charles Chattha and almost inevitably Luca Pagano who recorded his 17th cash in an EPT event.

Today's field will play down to a final table of eight with everyone guaranteed at least €15,000. The finalists will pocket at least €54,000 with the winner set to take home a cool €640,000.

Join us tomorrow to see who's still in contention.
