After five days of play the final eight at the €5,300 EPT Prague main event is set with three very conspicuous names holding down seats for tomorrow's final table.

German Julian Track is the official chip leader on 7,240,000 but he'll have to contend with three top tournament pros to claim the title.

Brits Max Silver and Stephen Chidwick sit ominously right behind Track with 5,935,000 and 4,935,000, respectively, while closer to the back of the pack with 2,400,000 GPI and EPT10 Player of the Year candidate Ole Schemion still looms large.

Over 1,000 entries, €889k for First

With a record-breaking 1,007 entrants for the main event this year the prize pool reached a teeming €4,883,950.

The tall and engimatic Track - an online specialist playing in his first live tournament - has the edge right now for the top prize of €889,000 but, showing some uncomfortableness on the feature table today, will have his work cut out for him.

Holding off Schemion will be a task on its own. The 21-year-old German is already eighth all-time on the German money list with $3.5m in cashes and has several notable wins including the 2012 Partouche Poker Tour main event.

Silver, a rising star in his own right, has two WSOPE final tables to his name along with a second-place in this year's UKIPT High Roller in London.

Chidwick, known online as Stevie444, is one of the most accomplished online players ever with close to $4m in career earnings. A burgeoning live resume also now includes 24 career WSOP cashes including six final tables.

Rounding out the final eight are Georgios Sotiropoulos from Greece, Ka Kwan Lau from Spain, Zdravko Duvnjak from Croatia and Jorma Nuutinen from Finland. The official eight and chip counts:


  • 1. Julian Track 7,240,000
  • 2. Max Silver 5,935,000
  • 3. Stephen Chidwick 4,935,000
  • 4. Georgios Sotiropoulos 4,320,000
  • 5. Ka Kwan Lau 2,995,000
  • 6. Ole Schemion 2,400,000
  • 7. Zdravko Duvnjak 1,225,000
  • 8. Jorma Nuutinen 975,000
