Teun Mulder bagged a dominant chip lead after Day 4 of the EPT Prague Main Event. With just 16 players remaining, Mulder sits with more than double his nearest rival. The Dutchman moved to the top of the counts after making quads on the live stream to eliminate Viktor Katzenberger, and held onto his lead throughout the rest of the day.

With over eight million in chips, there is a huge gap back to Symeon Alexandridis (4,065,000) who is second in chips, and then another large gap back to Andrea Cortellazi (2,775,000) in third.

Three former EPT Main Event champions started the day, and while Adrian Mateos was eliminated, both Dimitar Danchev and Hossein Ensan remain in contention. Ensan is looking to become the first player to win the same EPT twice, but will start Day 5 as the second-shortest stack with just 11 big blinds.

Day 4 Recap

Only two players were above 2,000,000 in chips at the start of day, but Gab Yong Kim and Dawid Kuliberda were joined by Andrea Cortellazzi who doubled after his ace-king cracked the kings of Jack Sinclair, with the Day 1a chip leader eliminated shortly thereafter.

Former EPT champion Adrian Mateos was an early elimination, along with former WSOP Europe Main Event champion Alexandros Kolonias.

The chip lead continued to changed hands before EPT Prague €25,000 Single Day High Roller champion Teun Mulder took over after rivering quads to send Viktor Katzenberger to the rail to move up to around 4,000,000 in chips.

The field continued to shrink with Mulder still in control as the tournament reached the final three tables. Demetrio Caminita was keeping tabs on Mulder, but another elimination for the Dutchman kept him out in front.

With a hard stop at 16 players, Mulder sent another player to the rail to hold a commanding chip lead ahead of the penultimate day.

Play will resume for Day 5 with 78:16 left in Level 26 (25,000/50,000/50,000). Stay tuned to PokerNews for all the action as the Main Event continues here in the Czech capital.

Paul Tedeschi
Paul Tedeschi

Paul Tedeschi raised to 500,000 in the cutoff and left himself just 10,000 behind. Grzegorz Glowny then moved all-in with the covering stack on the button and the blinds got out of the way. Tedeschi called it off and the following cards were tabled.

Paul Tedeschi: {a-Spades}{9-Diamonds}
Grzegorz Glowny: {a-Hearts}{q-Spades}

The {k-Spades}{q-Diamonds}{8-Spades} flop left Tedeschi in dire shape and his elimination was confirmed when the {5-Clubs} followed on the turn. This made the {9-Spades} river a formality and the Frenchman bowed out in 17th place for €45,540. All remaining 16 players are now bagging and tagging their chips.

Full chip counts and a recap of today's action are to follow.

Cortellazzi Takes From Glowny

zedmaster84 • Level 26: 25,000-50,000, 50,000 ante

In the second hand coming back from the break, Grzegorz Glowny limped the small blind. Andrea Cortellazzi raised it up to 150,000 and Glowny called.

Both headed to the {9-Hearts}{9-Spades}{4-Spades} flop on which Glowny checked and subsequently called a bet worth 150,000 by Cortellazzi. The {2-Hearts} turn and the {q-Spades} river were then checked down and Glowny tabled the {k-Hearts}{7-Hearts}. Cortellazzi had that beat with the {k-Spades}{j-Clubs} to win the pot.
