EPT: 24 Remain at Deauville, Luca Pagano Takes Chip Lead After Day 4

Those who have followed the European Poker Tour since its inception are more than familiar with the name Luca Pagano. The Italian poker pro has 20 EPT cashes (including this one) to his credit and now, after Day 4, has the chip lead with only 24 players remaining at EPT Deauville.

Pagano finished the day with 3,561,000 which puts him way in front of Olivier Rogez’s second best effort of 2,668,000. No other player was able to break the 2 million chip mark.  If Pagano were to go on to win the tournament it would be his seventh EPT final table and only his first title

The average chip stack when play starts on Day 5 will be just over 1.1 million and players will return to blinds of 12,000/24,000 (3,000 ante).

Martins Adeniya, who had made the most noise the past three days, was the most notable of the 30 players eliminated on Day 4. Also finding an early end to their tournament was Mohsin Charania.

The remaining players will be back at it beginning at 6 am Sunday morning and will play until the eight-handed final table. The final table is slated for Monday.
