Alejandro "Papo MC" Lococo

Argentina’s Alejandro “Papo MC” Lococo leads the final nine players into the Day 4 finale of the €1,100 Eureka Main Event at EPT Prague. The first multi-flight event of the European Poker Tour’s return to King’s Casino Prague attracted 3,155 runners and generated a €3,028,800 prize pool. The final nine players will return on Thursday at 12 p.m. local time to fight for the top prize of €417,820.

Lococo, a PokerStars Ambassador, is fresh off his final table finish at the 2021 WSOP Main Event and the popular international MC is looking for a big score in his first EPT cash. He is followed at a distance by Jon Kyte in second and WSOP bracelet winner Alexandre Reard in third. Bartolomeo Tato and Ville Jantunen round out the top five chip counts.

Lococo Runs Wild

"Papo MC" went on a Day 3 tear that saw him finish at the top of the leaderboard with nearly double the chips of his closest competitor. It started early when Lococo made queens and tens to crack Jan Mach's ace-king. It was one of many eliminations that Lococo would pick up, with Firat Baltaci following closely behind after the Argentinian MC called his shove with a pair of kings. Lococo followed that up with a set of nines to eliminate Petr Kubenka, who shoved with ace-queen.

Perhaps the biggest hand of Lococo's night came when he emerged from a deep tank to call Dan Borlan with a pair of threes. Borlan turned over dust and was out the door in 13th place. Lococo finished the day strong and he will return for the final table with just over 24,000,000 chips.
