Silver Lining at EPT Prague

Silver Lining at EPT Prague

Tuesday, 17 December 2013

On a day that saw the EPT's Main Event in Prague cut down t its final 22 players, Max Silver also set about turning his stack into gold. Having been a steady climber on the poker circuit since his maiden tournament victory at UKIPT Dublin 2010, Silver now looks to be thriving amongst Europe's finest in his latest MTT test.

Throughout the course of Day 4 the British pro look virtually unstoppable at time as he ripped through his opponents to finally end the day with 3,987,000 chips. That haul was almost one million more than his closest rival, Julian Track (3,010,000), who bagged enough to close the session ahead of Ole Schemion (2,700,000).

Also storming through the day and looking good for a place in Wednesday's final is a rejuvenated Stephen Chidwick. Just a few days after finishing third in this year's record-breaking Eureka Prague Main Event, Chidwick has capitalised on his positive momentum and ended yesterday's grind with 2,084,000 chips.

Day 5 will see each player sit down with at least €29,600 locked up, however, for the final eight their quest will continue through until Wednesday when they will have the chance to claim a coveted EPT title and €889,000.

While the Main Event hopefuls continued to grind on one side of the Hilton Prague, more than 129 high rollers were getting down to business on the other side.

Featuring some of Europe's most elite players, the High Roller saw the rise and fall of some top talent but by the close of play it was Georgios Karakousis leading the way. After swerving the attacks of Bertrand 'ElkY' Grospellier, Toby Lewis and Isaac Haxton, Karakousis managed to bag 407,200 chips to finish the day at the head of the leaderboard.
