Cajelais leads field at WPT Merit Cyprus Classic

by | Published: Wednesday, August 8th, 2012

Erik Cajelais is a big chip leader heading into day 4 of the World Poker Tour Merit Cyprus Classic.

Cajelais has 1,190,000 in chips, ahead of Artur Voskanyan (1,035,000) and Walid Bou Habib (986,000).

Cajelais will be desperate to claim his first World Poker Tour Title after going extremely close on a number of occasions.

The Canadian finished second behind Rhynie Campbell in the 2007 Turks and Caicos Poker Classic before finishing fourth in the Bay 1010 Shooting Stars Main Event last year.

Cajelais ran right through the field on day 3 eliminating  three players single-handily.

Two time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Oleksii Kovalcuk, former European Poker Tour Champion Maxim Panyak and Mansour Khorramshani all fell victim to Cajelais’s aggressive play.

World Poker Tour Amneville Champion Sam El Sayed is well positioned to make a run at a second title, currently sitting in fourth place with 950,000 in chips.

El Sayed made his move at level 19 bluffing Kyril Radzavonau off a hand to win a monster $120,000 pot.

The Switzerland native will become just the 13th person to win multiple World Poker Tour titles; joining poker legends such as: Barry Greenstien, Howard Lederer and Daniel Negreanu.

Marvin Rettenmaier has the same opportunity but with only 212,000 in chips has the shortest stack and a great deal of work to do.

The winner will take home $287,784 with each remaining player guaranteed a pay-out of at least $13,420.
