Sebastian Pauli Leads EPT London ME Final Table

Travel to England. On a map London

Sixteen players sat down at the start of Day 5 of the EPT London Main Event on Friday, all looking to take home the trophy and the almost £500,000 first place prize.  Now only 8 remain.

The fact that two players, Jake Cody and Kevin MacPhee,  remain in competition to become only the second EPT two time champions has added  another level of anticipation to Saturday’s final table. However, both have to overcome the major obstacle in the form of Sebastian Pauli whose 6.13 million chips is almost 4 million more than his closest opponent.

The first player out was Simon Deadman, who was quickly followed to the cashier window by Yann Pineau.  Gino Gabriel, Joao Vieira, Jonas Lauck, Ognyan Dimove and Raffaele Sorrentino were the next ones out.  The players redrew seats for the unofficial final table with three past EPT champions still in contention. Benny Spindler, however was not able to repeat his EPT London championship when he was eliminated as the final table bubble boy.  Spindler shoved with Ace-King from the big blind and Kevin Killeen made the easy call with pocket Kings.

The EPT London Main Event champion will be crowned on Saturday, and cards will be in the air at 1pm local time.
