2013 EPT Berlin Main Event Day 4: Herold Leads the Final 17 Players

On Thursday, Season 9 of the European Poker Tour continued with Day 4 of the EPT Berlin Main Event. After five more levels of play, the chip leader is German Roman Herold. On one of the final hands of the night, he and Alexander Helbig, who was the chip leader at the time, played in a more than 2 million-chip pot ? the largest of the tournament thus far. Helbig flopped two pair, but Herold rivered a better two pair, and called a 500,000-chip bet.

Herold?s rail went into a frenzy as the German raked in the pot, and he will lead the remaining 17 players at the start of Day 5 with 4.485 million chips.

Helbig, who ascended to the chip lead during Level 22 after he eliminated Pratyush Buddiga, bagged the fourth-largest stack with 2.040 million.
