EPT London Starts Day 4 With 62 Players Remaining

Day 3 of the £5,000 EPT London started with 159 players remaining but with only 104 places eligible for a payout. By the end of the day just 62 hopefuls survived to make it through to Day 4.
Leading the field at the Hilton Metropole in London is UK player James Mitchell  with 1.071 million in chips followed by fellows Brits Sam Macdonald (860k) and Martins Adeniya (787k) close behind in 2nd and 3rd.
The other players in the top 12 of the field include 2 more Brits for a total of 5 UK players, and 2 Germans, as well as an assortment of players from France, Holland, Spain, Hungary and the USA.
Other notables players still in contention at the EPT event are Juan Manuel Pastor, Jamie Rosen, Marvin Rettenmeier, Roberto Romanello, Steve O’Dwyer, Ana Marquez, Humberto Brenes, and Barny Boatman.
Amongst those players failing to even cash on Day 3 were many of the top names in the game. These included James Akenhead who busted out on the first hand of the day, followed Jake Cody the very next hand. They were then followed by Jason Mercier, Nicolas Chouity, Anton Wigg, Dan Kelly and Sorel Mizzi.
Of those pros at least coming away with a reward for their efforts were Bolivar Palacios (97th), Jeff Sarwer (95th), and Bryn Kenney (89th), all of whom collected £7,500 each.
Also cashing was Doyle Brunson (77th), Sebastian Ruthenberg (76th), Mustapha Kanit (69th), Andrew Feldman (68th), and Nikolas Liakos (67th), all receiving £9,000 each for their efforts.
Play resumes at 12pm today and will likely continue until just 24 players remain. The following day should then see the final table of eight reached with a champion being determined the following day on Thursday.
