Stephen Chidwick Headlines Eureka Poker Tour Prague Final Table

Stephen Chidwick

The final table of the Eureka Poker Tour Prague Main Event is set and what a final table it is. Not only have Team PokerStars Pro Marcin Horecki and Canadian superstar Ami “UhhMee” Barer made it to the eight-handed grand finale, but a Brit and Irishman in Stephen Chidwick and Mark Dalimore are also in with a chance of walking away with the €226,400 first place prize.

Chidwick starts the final table second in chips and will be one of the favourites to walk away with the quarter-of-a-million euros top prize. The man known online as “Stevie444” had to miss out on collecting his WCOOP bracelet – Chidiwck won WCOOP Event #29 this year – at the awards ceremony due to competing in the penultimate day of this record-breaking tournament, but he will not be too bothered if he managed to walk away with a bankroll-boosting sum.

Should Chidwick take down this tournament, he will have his friend Chris Moorman to thank. Late on Day 3, Moorman raised from under the gun and Chidwick called in the big blind. The {5-Hearts}{A-Clubs}{Q-Hearts} flop saw a betting war break out between the two poker Goliath’s that resulted in Moorman being all in and at risk of elimination as he was covered by a single big blind!

Moorman: {K-Hearts}{6-Hearts}
Chidwick: {A-Spades}{5-Clubs}

The flop had his both players hard, although Chidwick’s two-pair was the best hand. The {8-Clubs} turn was no help to Moorman and neither was the {Q-Clubs} river. Moorman exited in 2th place (€12,550) and Chidwick raked in the near 3 million chip pot.

If Chidwick is one of the favourites to go on and win in Prague then Ami Barer must be the favourite. The Canadian is one of the best online poker tournament players in the world – he is currently ranked 22nd in the world by PocketFives.com – thanks in part to winning over $5.6 million in his career so far. Barer sits at the final table armed with 7,280,000 chips and is the clear chip leader, although he will not be enthralled at the thought of having Chidwick to his left.

Making up the final table, but certainly not there to only make up the numbers, are 50-year old Czech pro Jaroslav Peter, young German Johannes Tiefenbrunner, Dmitri Holdeew, Milan Simko and Ireland’s Mark Dalimore.
