With the EPT Barcelona now over with, attentions have been turned to the World Poker Tour Legends of Poker that has been playing out over the past few of days. Many of the players that took part at the EPT have been frantically travelling across the globe to get in on the act at this ever popular World Poker Tour stop.
The final table of seven has now been reached after Day 4 of the event was completed last night. The event had originally brought in 593 players across two opening day flights and that field was chopped down in size daily to now reveal the lucky seven that will battle it out for some hefty payouts.
The event brought in many big players from the start, including Chris Moorman, Ryan Riess, JC Tran, Matt Salsberg and Freddy Deeb. The majority of these have now been knocked out across the following days and we are now just left with the final seven.
We pick up the event after Day 4, with us now just one day away from discovering a new WPT champion and somebody that is going to be significantly richer than they were the day before.
Day 4 started with 16 players spread across two tables and included the likes of big names Andy Frankenberger, Keven Stammen and Jeremey Kottler with the latter being the only one to make it to the final table of seven.
Squeezed KK after bet, call ten handed. Overcaller jammed w AK. A in the window. Ouch. Out in 10th.
