Ran Azor Chip Leader at World Poker Tour Merit Cyprus Classic

by | Published: Thursday, August 9th, 2012

The final table for World Poker Tour Merit Cyprus Classic has been set.

The field was whittled down to the final six at the end of day four, with Ran Azor from Isreal, holding the chip lead with 2,405,000 in chips.

Day four of the tournament was ended early with the final table set to being at 1 PM local time today.

Azor has gone close to winning a World Poker Tour title in the past finishing second in the 2009 $ 25,000 No Limit Hold’em Championship Event at the Five Star World Poker Classic.

Amazingly, he won the 2011 Merit Middle East Poker Championship which was played at the very same casino as this tournament.

Artur Voskanyan and Marvin Rettenmaier share second place with both players holding 2,030,000 in chips.

Voskanyan held the chip lead late on day four before being passed by Azor at the conclusion of the day’s play.

Rettenmaier had a remarkable day 4 going from the short stack to second place; while knocking out three players along the way.

Rettenmaier started the day by knocking out Robert Mizrachi with pocket-aces and followed this up by eliminating Walid Bou Habib, despite his Ace-Jack being dominated by Habib’s Ace-Queen.

The German finished the day’s proceedings by knocking out former chip leader Erik Cajelais, who never really got going on the final day of the tournament.

After his incredible day 4 run Rettenmaier is a fantastic position to add to the $25,000 World Poker Tour Championship he won last season and become the first player in history to win back to back World Poker Tour titles.
