O’Dwyer rises as pros fall at EPT London

O’Dwyer rises as pros fall at EPT London

Friday, 15 March 2013

The final table of this year’s WPT London main event drew agonisingly closer yesterday as the field of 32 whittled itself down to just 15 before time was called on proceedings.

As expected, there are very few soft spots in the final few as the likes of Steve O’Dwyer (2,279,000) and Nicolas Chouity (2,124,000) led the way at the close of play.

Also still in contention for the £700,000 top prize was Day 3 chip leader Pasi Sormunen who finished yesterday’s session just ahead of the fearsome figures of Theo Jorgensen (1,474,000) and Chris Moorman(1,372,000).

For all the star power that survived Day 4’s cull, a plethora of talent littered the rail as the likes of Jason Mercier, Annette Obrestad and Mike 'Timex' Macdonald all faltered as the session progressed.

Today’s penultimate confrontation will see the remaining players grind until they’ve made it into the final eight or relinquished both their chips and their grip on this year’s EPT London trophy.
