Chip leader Negreanu seeks elusive triple crown at EPT Vienna final table

ept-vienna-negreanu-triple-crownDaniel Negreanu is sitting pretty at the end of Day 4 action at the EPT Vienna, with a sizeable chip lead over yesterday’s top dog, Konstantinos Nanos. Heading into Sunday’s final table, there’s a lot more on the line for Negreanu than just the €700k first prize. Should Kid Poker maintain his lead until the (not so) bitter end, he’ll not only vault back atop the all-time money list, he’ll also become just the third player in history (joining Gavin Griffin and Roland de Wolfe) to earn triple crown status – WSOP, WPT and EPT honors. Negreanu already has four WSOP bracelets and two WPT titles, making Vienna his best shot at hitting for the alphabet cycle.

The action kicks off again Sunday at noon local time (just remember to factor in that whole ‘fall-back’ seasonal clock adjustment). Here are your final tablers, in order of chip count: Daniel Negreanu (5.070m); Konstantinos Nanos (3.635m); Michael Eiler (2.160m); Luca Cainelli (1.935m); Bruno Launais (1.785m); Matthias Lotze (1.210m); Martin Hruby (975k); Andreas Wiese (730k).
