EPT Prague Final Table Set (vid)

Pokerstars chips

In near record setting fashion the 22 players who started Day 5 of the EPT Prague Main Event reached the final table in just under two levels.

The players who started in positions one and two held on to the top spots but it was German Julian Track who took over the top spot.

Track bagged a massive 7,240,000 chips. Silver takes a respectable 5,935,000 stack to the final table. He owes his chip lead to a massive 7,605,000 chips pre-flop pot with Track all in holding pocket 10’s vs. Ori Hasson’s Ace-Queen off suit. Hasson was crippled and eliminated shortly afterwards

Max Silver and Stephen Chidwick took on the role as the spoilers eliminating a total of six players during the lightning fast play.

Silver remained low key concerning his success at the final table.

But a later Tweet seemed to indicate that his making the final table may not have been expected.

The other big story of the day belongs to German Ole Schemion. Although he eliminated two players he actually ended the day down 300,000 chips. He did however uncrowned Daniel Negreanu to capture the 2013 Global Poker Index Player of the Year title. Even with a below average chip stack, Schemion starts the final table with 60 big blinds.

At the final table, which will be streamed live on PokerStars.tv, the average stack will consist of a massive 94 big blinds. No one expects the final table to play as fast as Day 5, but then again no one expected play from the final 9 to the final 8 to take only two hands either.
