The final table has finally been established for the Poker Stars EPT San Remo

April 27, 2009 by Dan Brown in EPT

Day 2 (after Day 1a and Day 1b) started with a field of 469 players that were all looking for instant stardom in the poker world. By the end of the day, over 300 dreams would be shattered and 124 more people were that much closer to achieving their goal.

Dragon Galic continued to have his name atop the leader board and is benefiting from playing great poker and magical cards. He continued to use his monster chip stack to bully small stacks and force them into situations that they did not want to be. This was big stack poker at its finest and it seemed to pay off at every turn of the cards. There were more than a few hopes that were shattered as the day to a close and the money was finally in sight.

Day 3 brought more of the same. However, there was finally one weak link in the chain, or at least we thought, of Dragon Galic. For the first time in what seemed forever, he lost the lead in the tournament. That was rectified by the end of the day though as he once again claimed the top spot. While he continued to play solid, Constant Rijkenberg had more than a few eyebrows being raised.

He got out of the gates quicker than anyone else in Day 3 and was the player to take over the leader board for a brief moment. It seemed like it was going to be his day from the very beginning as he covered as all in with pocket deuces that held up. By the end of the day, there were only 32 people left standing and Galic was tops among them all.

Galic continues to look the ‘child of destiny’ as after his brief break from being the chip leader, he has refused to let anyone else get above him again. It is a rare occasion that you see a chip leader hold the title each and every day of the tournament, but that is what we are seeing here. His one brief stumble came in day 3, but at the end of the day, the leader board still had his name atop it.

With only 24 players standing in the way of the final table, everyone was out for blood. Galic continued to be merciless and had a few allies in his campaign. The day ended when Neuville got a little too greedy with a Kc10s preflop and ran into QQ. The board never improved him and he went out in 9th place and collected €78,800 for his time.

We now have our final table and Galic continues to lead the field. His lead is not as large as it once was, but you can only assume he is happy with the 400,000 chip lead he has on his closest competitor. It is going to be a long road for anyone other than the top three as they hold over 73% of the chips is play.
