Hand #9: {9-Spades}{6-Spades} for Gleb Tremzin in the cutoff with two shorties behind him. He opened to 265,000 nonetheless.

It was a pure coinflip, but that all changed after the {Q-Clubs}{J-Spades}{2-Clubs} flop! Ensan was now leading, and he didn't get in trouble anymore with the {10-Clubs} on the turn and {10-Spades} on the river. Double up for Ensan, Ferrero down to just 3 big blinds.

Hands 1-2: Quads for Popov

• Nível 30: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante

Hand #1: Ilkin Amirov raised under the gun plus one with {K-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds} to 205,000 and he picked up the pot. This hand puts Amirov over 10 million chips, about 2.5 million more than Gleb Tremzin, who's in second place.

Hand #2: Ilkin Amirov raised under the gun with {J-Hearts}{9-Hearts} to 205,000 and Slaven Popov woke up with {8-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} on his direct left. Popov called, and the other players folded. The flop came down {8-Clubs}{8-Spades}{6-Clubs} and Popov flopped quads! Amirov continued for 175,000 and Popov made the call.

On the turn the {9-Spades} hit, giving Amirov a pair, but he was already drawing dead against the quads of his opponent. Amirov bet 255,000 and Popov stared at the board before making it 660,000 total. Amirov went into the tank for quite some time before calling, and the river was the {5-Spades}.

This time Amirov checked, and Popov bet 1,195,000 with 2,290,000 in the middle. Amirov folded rather quickly and Popov picked up the first big pot of this six-handed final table.

Who Going to Take Down the EPT Prague Main Event?

Webjoker
Ilkin Amirov
Ilkin Amirov

Still 6 players are in contention for the coveted 2015 PokerStars EPT Season 12 Prague €5,300 Main Event title, with Ilkin Amirov in the lead. The Azerbaijani was already going strong when he knocked out no less than three people in one hand to go from 13 to 10 players in one swoosh. That hand, dubbed one of the wildest hands in EPT history, speeded things up, but it still took for just after midnight to finish the penultimate day.

The final table starts at 1 om local time today (in about an hour), but live coverage on PokerNews.com doesn't start till 2 pm as we don't want to spoil anything for the live stream. There's still some 23 minutes left in level 30 (50,000/100,000 with a 10,000 ante), which gives chip leader Amirov 100 big blinds while short stack Olivier Ferrero starts with only 18 big blinds.
