jeffmcmillan • Level 21: 8,000-16,000, 16,000 ante

The turn was the {q-Clubs}. Beresford came with another bet, this time for 180,000. Mateos folded after a few moments to relinquish some of his chips.

At table 3, Andreas Berggren raised to 32,000 from middle position. Andriy Lyubovetskiy three-bet to 96,000 from the hijack. Niall Farrell came over the top with a four-bet jam from the cutoff. Berggren quickly folded while Lyubovetskiy thought for about 20 seconds before also tossing his cards into the muck.

Duran First Out the Door, Lofberg Joins Chip Leaders

MikePatrick • Level 21: 8,000-16,000, 16,000 ante

Simon Lofberg raised in middle position to 32,000 and was three-bet to 90,000 by Ferhat Duran.

Lofberg called then checked a flop of {k-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}. Duran continued for another 80,000. Lofberg called.

The {9-Diamonds} fell on the turn, and after Lofberg checked again, Duran moved all in for a little under 400,000.

Lofberg instantly called, and he had it, showing {j-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}.

Duran flashed his {a-Clubs}{k-Hearts} which was drawing dead and just tossed it into the muck. He'll collect €25,760 for his 23rd place finish.

With the win, Lofberg crosses the one million chip mark and is now among the chip leaders with 22 players remaining.

Cowen Turns Pair to Double

jeffmcmillan • Level 21: 8,000-16,000, 16,000 ante

Ferhat Duran raised to 35,000 from the button. Robert Cowen jammed and Duran called.

Robert Cowen: {k-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}
Ferhat Duran: {a-Spades}{8-Hearts}

Cowen would need to come from behind to stay alive. The flop came {6-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{6-Hearts} for no help. But the turn was the {j-Clubs} to pair the jack. The river was the {7-Diamonds} to confirm the double for Cowen.

The PokerStars European Poker Tour Prague wraps up Wednesday with among other closing events and final tables, Day 3 of the €10,300 EPT High Roller, which sees 23 returning hopefuls chasing the €527,070 first prize.

2021 WSOP bracelet winner Andriy Lyubovetskiy leads the field with 1,272,000 chips. He'll be trying to surpass his largest-ever live score of €518,430 which he received for his bracelet win last fall.

Some of poker’s biggest names are not far behind him though, closest of which is Spanish superstar Adrian Mateos who enters the day with 1,265,000 in chips.

Among the other 22 runners in the chase for EPT glory are Conor Beresford (958,000) and Mike Watson (883,000) who made strong charges on Day 2 to vault themselves into the top five of the chip counts. Niall Farrell finds himself in the middle of the pack with 512,000 chips after dragging some key pots late on Tuesday.
