Thi Nguyen was down to just 200,000 following a hand with Bhavin Khatri. The two were back it again when Nguyen shoved all in and Khatri called on the button.

Bhavin Khatri: {a-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}
Thi Nguyen: {k-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}

The flop came {10-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{2-Clubs} to give Nguyen a pair of tens but the {q-Hearts} on the turn gave Khatri a pair of queens. The river was the {7-Clubs} and Nguyen was eliminated, bringing the field down to just two tables.

Who Will Be Victorious in the €10,000 EPT High Roller?

Masato Yokosawa

The final day of the 2019 PokerStars EPT Prague festival is about to get underway as the 2019 poker calendar begins to close out its season before the holidays. There will be 17 players returning to their seats in the €10,000 EPT High Roller but only one will come out on top in this 255-entry tournament.

After two days and 20 levels of poker, Simon Lofberg is currently leading the way with an impressive stack of 2,205,000 chips. Lofberg was the only player to crack the 2 million chip mark on Day 2 but his work isn't finished yet. Lofberg is in search of his largest career live tournament score but the competition will be tough when the cards go back in the air. Masato Yokosawa (1,685,000), George Wolff (1,115,000), and Yunye Lu (1,085,000) are the only other players with a seven-figure chip count.

There are plenty of others to keep an eye on moving forward including Gianluca Speranza (720,000), Matthias Eibinger (605,000), Ludovic Geilich (675,000), and Rainer Kempe (505,000). Sam Greenwood, Daniel Dvoress, and Tsugunari Toma are on the short stacks but they each have plenty of high-roller experience so don't count them out either.

The action is scheduled to get underway at 12:30 p.m. local time with just one elimination away from breaking to two tables. The blinds will resume on level 21 at 10,000/20,000 and a 20,000 big blind ante. The levels will remain at 60 minutes throughout for the time being with a 20-minute break after every two levels. Each player will receive additional time extensions to begin the day as well as at the final table.

There is still plenty of money up for grabs as the day unfolds with the remaining players having already locked up €32,900. There will be significant pay jumps throughout the day with the winner taking home a cool €523,120.

Follow along with the PokerNews live reporting team to find out who will come out on top of this star-studded field and become the champion.
