Kevin MacPhee

There were 23 poker players remaining at this year’s EPT Prague event after Day 3.  Kevin MacPhee of the US led with the most number of chips:  2096000.  There were 563 players originally entered in the event.

MacPhee is fairly prominent on the live poker circuit, having won nearly $2 million to date.  Much of that money was won this past March at the PokerStars.com EPT Berlin - Season 6:  EPT No Limit Hold'em (Up) Championship.

Little did MacPhee know at the time he would be winning the world’s most recognized poker tournament of the year.  That’s because the EPT Berlin event received worldwide media attention following a brazen daytime robbery during its final hours.  MacPhee would later appear on several talk shows discussing the crime that unfolded.  The suspects were later apprehended.
