Nivel 27 : Blinds 30,000-60,000, 60,000 ante

Denzel Spekman raised to 250,000 from under the gun with {q-Hearts}{j-Spades} and Peter Jorgne three-bet to 385,000 from the big blind with {a-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}. Spekman called and action was heads up.

The flop was {7-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{9-Clubs} and Jorgne continued for 300,000. Spekman shuffled his chips and thought about his options before he tossed in the chips to call.

The turn was {5-Clubs} and Jorgne fired 425,000 to a quick fold from Spekman.

Sven Stok Eliminated in 15th Place (€59,300)

Nivel 27 : Blinds 30,000-60,000, 60,000 ante
Sven Stok - Razvan Belea
Sven Stok - Razvan Belea

Sven Stok limped the small blind and chip leader Razvan Belea raised to 235,000 in the big blind. What followed was the limp-shove by Stok for just over 30 big blinds and Belea snapped him off to reveal the most cruel of setups.

Sven Stok: {k-Clubs}{k-Hearts}
Razvan Belea: {a-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}

The dominated pair found no help on the {q-Spades}{8-Spades}{6-Spades}{j-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} and Stok left the table with a sigh and "nothing you can do there".

Who Will Reach the Final Day of the 2023 EPT Paris €5,300 Main Event

Johan Schultz-Pedersen

The sixth largest Main Event in the history of the PokerStars European Poker Tour will crown a winner throughout the next two days. Out of a field of 1,606 entries, only 15 hopefuls remain in contention for the biggest slice of the €7,708,800 prize pool. Among them are two PokerStars online qualifiers and one of them leads the way at the Hyatt Regency Paris Etoile.

Romania's Razvan Belea enters the penultimate tournament day of the 2023 EPT Paris €5,300 Main Event with 7,285,000 in chips whereas Fabrice Bigot sits in the middle of the pack of shorter stacks with 1,940,000 chips to his name. Both will aim to repeat the victory of Piotr Nurzynski back in 2018, who also ran deep in this event and finished in 30th place for €28,350 this time.

It won't be an easy ride for either of the two qualifiers as the remaining field of contenders is filled with a slate of poker enthusiasts from all over Europe. Denmark's Johan Schultz-Pedersen, who calls Austria his home base these days, sits in second place on the leaderboard with 6,620,000 followed by Denzel Spekman (5,440,000).

Day 3 chip leader Konstantin Held (2,640,000) is no longer the hero atop the leaderboard after an ill-timed move against Henri Kasper (4,790,000) with both players returning in the overnight top ten.

Perhaps the biggest name still left in contention is online poker legend Niklas "lena900" Astedt, who is second to last in the counts with 1,415,000. Well-known rising poker pros Harry Lodge (2,325,000), Mehdi Chaoui (1,760,000) and Arthur Conan (1,420,000) have all had plenty of deep runs on the live poker circuit already.

Day 5 is scheduled to commence at noon local time with level 27, which features blinds of 30,000-60,000 and a big blind ante of 60,000. One further redraw will take place once the field is down to the final nine contenders and the goal of the day is reaching the last six players for tomorrow's grand finale.

All PokerNews updates for the live-streamed final table and the outer table will be published according to the 30-minute security delay in order to not spoil any of the action.
