Day 4 of the super popular World Poker Tour Prague Main Event is now in the bag, as we saw the 22 players coming in to the day reduced to the sole survivors who will challenge for the title on the final table later today.
The player whose light shone brighter than anyone else’s yesterday was that of Bodo Sbrzesny who finished up as the chip leader going into the final day. He gradually built up a huge stack during the day and was responsible for many of the eliminations, with him ending the day with 4,605,000 chips. That amount puts a million ahead of Tony Chang going into today’s final, with Alexandr Lahkov a further 800k behind.
As Play Began!
The day actually started at a fairly slow pace this time around, with the first elimination coming after about an hour. The player to go was Lars Bonding, as he had become a short stack and pushed all in with just the Jd-9c and was easily called by the pocket tens of Simon Ravnsbaek.
As things moved along we lost many more players such as Daniel Rudd, Wojciech Lozowski, Alin Grasu, Jason Mercier and the super friendly Kevin MacPhee.
We eventually found ourselves down to 10 remaining players, with Sbrzesny heading the field by now with 4 million. However, it didn’t take much longer before that number of players was reduced even further as Fabian Quoss and Konstantin Danilov were eliminated in quick succession.
The players headed for their dinner break knowing that just two more players were need to be knocked from the event to see the final table.
As they returned it seemed the players were hoping to see those eliminations happen quickly as the pace of the game dramatically picked up. Their hopes were answered when Daniel Ospina ran his Ah-6h into the pocket kings of Sbrzesny and Elio Fox became the bubble boy shortly after.
The final six will be returning at 1pm local time here in Prague, with each of the players believing they have a shot at this title. The table is fairly stacked apart from Alin Grasu being the short stack, though even he will be thinking he could perhaps pull something off here if he can double up a couple of times.
