Luca Pagano on top at EPT Deauville

Sunday, 5 February 2012

Luca Pagano is no stranger to making the money on the PokerStars European Poker Tour. The Italian holds the record for the most EPT cashes but he has, as yet, never managed to actually seal a title. That could be about to change though with Pagano holding the chip lead going into the penultimate day.

The Team PokerStars Pro will start Day 5 with a stack of 3,561,000, over 800,000 in front of closest rival Olivier Rogez who returns with 2,668,000. Chris Brammer heads the British challenge with 1,262,000 with Rob Stain slightly further back with 816,000. Other notables also still in contention are Irishman Mick Graydon on 723,000 and Kevin Vandermissen on 737,000.
