Nicholas Palma Eliminated in 17th Place (€36,060)

Chad_Holloway • Level 22: 12,000-24,000, 3,000 ante
Nicholas Palma - 17th Place
Nicholas Palma - 17th Place

Action folded to a short-stacked Nicholas Palma in the small blind and he open-shipped for just over 200K, which Luc Greenwood snap-called from the big blind.

Palma: {3-Spades}{3-Hearts}
Greenwood: {j-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}

"It's alright, a three is coming," Palma said optimistically.

Unfortunately for him, his prediction did not come true as the board ran out an unhelpful {4-Spades}{2-Hearts}{8-Spades}{q-Clubs}{10-Spades}.

Smaron Shoves on MacPhee

YorkshirePud • Level 22: 12,000-24,000, 3,000 ante

Kenneth Smaron has started well and improved his stack to almost 600,000.

Kevin MacPhee led for 120,000 on the river of the {Q-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{4-Spades}{3-Clubs}{J-Spades} board, only to see Smaron raise all-in for 302,000 in total. MacPhee was considering his options for the best part of four minutes before Vanessa Selbst called time on him.

With 30 seconds remaining before his hand was declared dead, MacPhee folded.

Who Will Win the €595,500 First Place Prize?

YorkshirePud
Kevin MacPhee
Kevin MacPhee

Imagine winning €595,500 a few days before Christmas. It'd be amazing, right? Well, in a few hours one of the final 18 players in the EPT12 Prague €10,000 High Roller will have that amount credited to their bank account and will forever be known as the tournament's champion.

At the start of play is is American star Kevin MacPhee who is in pole position to win that massive sum of money having bagged up 1,576,000 chips at the end of Day 2. However, Switzerland's Felix Bleiker finished second in chips only a solitary 1,000 chip behind MacPhee.

Despite their big stacks, neither MacPhee or Bleiker are going to have things their own way because there are some extremely talented individuals still in the hunt for the title, and if they don't win it they will have a major influence over where that trophy calls home for the next year.

The likes of Rocco Palumbo, Team PokerStars Pro Vanessa Selbst, Davidi Kitai, and Daniel "Jungleman" Cates are still in the mix, making for what should be an exciting final day here in Prague.
