For the semifinal round, Botteon draws Oktay Kahyaoglu, the least known of the final four.
Kahyaoglu managed to defeat one of the toughest opponents in the game en route to the finals when he bested Michael Addamo in the Round of 32. Few have been crushing the high stakes to the level of Addamo recently, so that result had to put observers and players alike on notice that Kahyaoglu isn't to be taken lightly.
One of the last entries in the event, the Turkish player has only about $15K in live cashes, all coming in relatively small events in Cyprus and Russia. Kahyaoglu has only cashed for about $38K on GGPoker, a stark contrast to his opponents, all of whom have $750K at the very least on the site.
All of that marks Kahyaoglu as the clear wild card, but if he can topple Addamo, he's unlikely to find any remaining challenge impassable.
