After day four of the European Poker Tour Berlin Main Event there are only seventeen players left in the hunt for the title and the first place prize of € 880,000.
Hometown hero Roman Herold is currently the chip leader and holds a massive 4,485,000 in chips.
Herold won a massive pot against former chip-leader Aku Joentausta and continued to add to his monster chip stack throughout the night.
No matter where he finishes Herold will improve on his previous best tournament payday of € 20,000 that he won for finishing thirty-fifth in the European Poker Tour Barcelona Main Event.
Herold’s closest rival is Russian Dashgyn Aliev who currently has 3,931,000 in chips.
Aliev won the biggest pot of the day when he took down 1.6 million in chips and eliminated Colin Moffat and Daniel Reijmer.
Khiem Nguyen is one of the most experienced players remaining in the tournament and is currently sitting in third position with a chip stack of 2,788,000.
Nguyen has had previous success on the European Poker Tour, winning the € 1,000 Pot Limit Omaha Rebuy during the EPT Grand Final in Monte Carlo, and has been a consistent performer on the tournament circuit.
The biggest name remaining in the tournament is Olivier Busquet who is in fourteenth position with 736,000 in chips.
Busquet would desperately love to win this tournament to make up for his disappointment after finishing second the Main Event of the European Poker Tour Campione last year.
The New York native has been in good form so far in 2013 and has cashed in the Pokerstars Caribbean Adventure, World Poker Tour Borgata Winter Poker Open, Big Stax Poker Series and the Card Player Poker Tour.
Play resumes later today and will continue until a final table of eight players is reached.
