The well-known German Poker Tour Easter Edition Main Event is in progress and this Monday is expected to see the official final table of action which is going to make known the new champion of the GPT Easter Edition.

So far the culminating event of this edition of the German Poker Tour has been going strong with a fast pace of poker action on the tables. Day 1c was the third starting flight which gave players the chance to enter the riveting poker race towards the throne and it took place this Sunday. A total of 393 players claimed their spot on one of the seats available at the King’s Casino in Rozvadov, the Czech Republic which is a regular host of major poker tournaments and international festivals. The chip leader among Day 1c participants happened to be Dominik Datron from France who managed to generate a total of 470,000 in chips at the end of the day.

Out of all players willing to become part of the Main Event thrill, only 354 continued ahead towards the official Day 2 of the poker tournament. This is when all participants from the three starting flights gathered for the first time and moved a step closer to the anticipated final table. The runner-up position at the end of the second day of action was reserved for Pavel Červený who is a local poker player. During the hours of poker action, he succeeded in amassing as many as 442,500 in chips which guaranteed him the second place.

Poker Action During Main Event Final Stages

Oliver Meerkamp from Germany who was the chip leader during Day 1b took the third place in the unofficial leader board with his 434,800. This is how the poker action came to the Final Day of the Main Event before the official final table. This final elimination round put an end to the poker run for many players who could not survive the rivalry.

The first one to go home with cash was Markus Eicher from Switzerland who received the minimum payout from the Main Event amounting to €669. With a steady pace, the player field was reduced to only 25 players progressing ahead to the Monday action which will determine the new German Poker Tour Champion.
