WPT Seminole and EPT San Remo Day 4

The latest live tournament happenings saw the WPT Seminole Showdown field narrowed to the last two tables while the EPT San Remo Main Event is now down to the final three. Though the WSOP-C Caesars Main Event has already concluded, these two tournaments will continue on for another two days. Meanwhile, the attention on the World Series of Poker Circuit will likely shift to the Harrah’s Chester stop; while that particular tournament started before the Caesars leg ended, it will continue to run through May 10.

Since the WSOP-C Chester tournament won’t start its Main Event for a few more days, we’ve got plenty of time to focus on the WPT and EPT Main Events that are wrapping up early next week. Back at the WPT Seminole Hard Rock Showdown, only 18 players remain. Day 3’s big stacks – Taylor von Kriegenbergh and Abbey Daniels – managed to hold onto million-plus chip piles, but two other players have since hit the million mark with Blair Hinkle overtaking the entire field to go into Day 5 as the chipleader at 1,783,000.

At one point it looked like another player entirely – Timothy T.K. Miles – would be at the front when Day 5 started. Miles took out two other players early on to leap frog to the front of the pack, but at the end of Level 20 Hinkle swooped in on Miles and surged to the front when he sent his opponent to the rail. Other notable eliminations included Tyler Kenney, Mike Sexton, and Day 2 leader Todd Terry.

The EPT San Remo Main Event started Day 4 with 60 deserving players and played down to the three table goal in just a few hours. Several strong competitors were eliminated, but a surprising number of high profile pros. Thus far, Joe Cada, Max Lykov, Max Heinzelmann and Day 3 leader Roberto Spada remain.

Once again, though, Day 4 was summarized by a violent and unexpected leaderboard takeover. The man that did just that on Day 4 in San Remo was none other than nomadic pro Nicolas Yunis (originally of Chile, formerly of the U.S. and now based out of Norway). Yunis goes into Day 5 with 2,281,000 chips – far ahead of any of his remaining opponents, none of whom have yet been able to join him at the 2 million mark.
