EPT Sanremo ME & HR – Westmorland, Kopylkov Leaders

Italian Flag

We had the EPT Sanremo Main Event getting down to the business end of proceedings whilst the High Roller kicked off in style yesterday. Both events played out alongside each other and brought us another top selection of poker action to bring you.

Take a look at how each event is shaping up down below.

EPT Sanremo Main Event Day 4 Westmorland Leads Final 16

We are now down to the final two tables of eight in the European Poker Tour Sanremo Main Event after that number was reached from the 39 that started on Day 4. After coming into the day 4th in chips it was Jordan Westmorland that put in the most impressive performance after storming to the top of the chip counts with 3,074,000.

That is almost double the 1,776,000 of Raul Mestre who sits in second place and means he will be the man to beat when Day 5 starts up later today. Others that made it through included Stephen Chidwick and two PokerStars Team Pros in Vicky Coren and Alex Kravchenko.


Going home on Day 4 among the eliminations were Dimitar Danchev, Olivier Busquet and Michael Tureniec, three high caliber players that will now look ahead to their next events.

The Current Top Ten

1st) Jordan Westmorland – 3,074,000

2nd) Raul Mestre – 1,776,000

3rd) Jorma Nuutinen – 1,564,000

EPT Sanremo High Roller Day 1 – Kopylkov Heads 47

With the Main Event nearing completion it was time for the next big event to kick off in the €10,300 EPT Sanremo High Roller. It brought in 103 registrations and finished its first day with just 47 of them advancing, though that number can still grow as registration is open right up until the start of Day 2.

Leading those 47 right now is Alexander Kopylkov with 331,400 in chips, whilst Jason Lavelle is his closest competition at the moment on 308,400. Others progressing into Day 2 include Griffin Benger, Ole Schemion, David Vamplew and Max Greenwood.

The biggest name to be eliminated has to be that of PokerStars Team Pro Vanessa Selbst who was looking for a strong performance to increase her chances of winning the EPT Player of the Year, she busted the event along with the likes of Sorel Mizzi, Ludovic Lacay and Anton Wigg.

However, as she chose not to rebuy back into the event on Day 1, she can still buy in again on before the start of Day 2, which judging by her tweet she will be doing just that.

The Current Top Ten

1st) Alexander Kopylkov – 331,400
