Elite eight left at EPT San Remo
Just eight players remain in the hunt for the €800,000 first prize at San Remo. Leading the charge is 26-year-old Jason Lavallee from Montreal, Canada. His biggest score to date is $791,150 which he banked for finishing second at WPT Festa al Lago in 2009. The Canadian can surpass that figure with a win in San Remo.
But, he won’t be having it all his own way, second in chips going to the final table is Ludovic Lacay the Frenchman has over $2,000,000 in lifetime winnings but no major title to his name, he’ll be looking to put that right.
Coming in third in Irishman Jason Tompkins, he led with 24 players left and rode that stack all the way to the final table, he has 10 five figure scores to his name, a sixth place finish will give him his first six figure one.
Five other players will have a say though, Artem Litvinov, Micah Raskin, Adrian Piaseck, Ismael Bojang and Angelo Recchia will all be hoping to get all the chips. The latter is the sole Italian left in the field. The final table starts at 2pm GMT, with an ‘as live’ broadcast, including hole cards from 3pm.
