Day 4 of the World Poker Tour National London Main Event saw 27 players reduced to the final table of eight at the Aspers Casino Westfield in Stratford City. Elior Sion and his 1,731,000 will lead those eight players back into battle on Tuesday afternoon.
Sion dominated from start to finish and deservedly holds the title of chip leader. His impressive stack contains almost 500,000 more chips than that if his nearest rival Rasmus Larson, who himself had a very productive day at the Aspers felt.
Larson, who is close friends with Danish star Simon Ravnsbaek, ended Day 3 on a heater and was responsible for the eliminations of a number of players including Sebastian Muller in 10th place to set the unofficial final table.
In that hand Muller committed his stack with on a flop in the hope Larson would let his hand go and Muller would pick up the pot. That plan may have worked had Larson not been sat there with in his hand. Larson’s jacks held and Muller busted out in tenth.
The seat Muller was sat on hadn’t even had the chance to go cold before the ninth place finisher was decided and play ended for the night. Larson opened from the cutoff at the 6,000/12,000/2,000a level and Radoslaw Morawiec three-bet to 62,000 from the small blind. The first three community cards were the and Morawiec led out for 52,000. Larson called and the dealer placed the onto the turn. Morawiec had around a pot-sized bet left in his stack and he moved on all-in, only to see Larson snap-call with for a straight, crushing the of Morawiec. The meaningless fell on the river and with that the tournament was paused for the last time.
