At noon local time, six players out of 2,452 entries will return to the Hilton Prague for the final table of the €1,100 EPT National here at the 2019 European Poker Tour Prague to battle it out for the first-place prize of €375,000. All six of them are already guaranteed €70,265 but they will all be ready to rumble for a bigger share of the whopping €2,353,920 prize pool.
Coming into the day with the chip lead is Semen Kravets from Russia with 18,325,000 in chips which equals 61 big blinds. He is followed by Romania’s Narcis Nedelcu with 13,975,000 and Jasper Meijer van Putten with 13,100,000. Yin Liu and Jussi Mattila don’t trail the others by much but Gregory Telman starts the day with fewer than 20 big blinds so will be looking to make his mark early on the day.
This is how they are seated:
|Seat||Player||Country||Chip Count||Big Blinds|
|3||Jasper Meijer Van Putten||Netherlands||13,100,000||44|
When the players take their seats, they will first finish the final 14 minutes of Level 34 which has a small blind of 150,000, big blind of 300,000, and a big blind ante of 300,000. The expectation is that a break will take place after every two full levels of 60 minutes have been played and, in the end, one person will walk away with the trophy, the title, the bragging rights, and the first-place prize money.
This what is left to play for:
