Just seven players remain in this year's World Series of Poker Europe Main Event, with Czech player Josef Gulas leading the way ahead of Germany's Alexander Tkatschew.
Gulas won his seat back in October after finishing third in a €250 buy-in event at King's Resort, and now he is in pole position to pick up what would be the biggest result of his career along with €1,276,712 in prize money.
Two other final tablists in Stanislav Koleno and Thomas Denie are through to the final day having at least €163,434 locked up. The final table is rounded out by Johan Guilbert, Athanasios Kidas and Aleksandr Trajkovski.

Day 4 Action
The action resumed with 32 players remaining and Dimitar Yosifov leading the way. ClubGG qualifier Daniel Petri shot up the ranks to put pressure on the overnight chip leader.
However, he was eliminated by Guillaume Diaz who took over as chip leader with three tables remaining as another Frenchman pulled out in front. Johan Guilbert had chipped up steadily and seemed to be in the thick of the action. Despite one hand where he tanked for over 17 minutes he sent multiple opponents to the rail.
Diaz would have two opponents double through him as his challenge faltered, with Guilbert taking over at the top of the counts. However, after Diaz and Yossi Dayan were sent to the rail in eleventh and tenth place respectively, it was Gulas held a commanding lead as the final table got underway.
There was still time for the eliminations of Brian Kamphorst and Ilija Savevski to round out the day, with play being halted for the final seven players and Gulas still in the lead.
