A total of 50 players started at 12 noon for the fourth day of the PokerStars.net European Poker Tour Vienna Main Event. The plan was to play either five 90-minute levels or down to 16 players, whichever would come first. The way things started off, it looked like the latter would be the end of the day, but when it came to it, five full levels were played out and 17 players remained at at 9 p.m. local time.
Pablo Gordillo, the Spanish player who started out the day as the chip leader, continued right where he left off on Day 3. He won pots left and right, eliminating Mathias Rinnhofer in the process. Not only was he running good, he was also playing extremely well. He showed he knew how to play his cards in a hand with Julian Herold where he successfully called a big river bet with a mere pair of sixes on a dangerous board.
Former World Poker Tour Montreal winner Jonathan Roy was the second player to bust. Roy, who went deep in the EPT Prague Main Event (28th for €21,200), finished in 49th for €14,600 after his pocket tens couldn't hold up against Timo Pfutzenreuter's ace-queen. That would just be the start of it for Pfutzenreuter, who continued knocking people out. The second scalp he collected was the one of Timothy Davie.
One remarkable hand was a three-way all-in pot where no one was eliminated without it being a split. Though Michel Abecassis, Dmitry Morozov and Michael Tabarelli all survived the encounter, it wouldn't do them much good. Before the end of the day, all three were gone.
Roman Korenev wasn't feeling too well today. At least that's what we concluded after seeing him cough from time to time and take a shot of cough syrup during one of the breaks. Maybe he was getting a little ill, but a leopard can't change its spots. Korenev, who made the final table of the EPT in Berlin last year, pulled of a double check-raise. His opponent, Sebastian Trisch, was about the only one not impressed.
One-time chip leader Jozsef Olah wouldn't make it to Day 5. After hanging around with a short stack for quite some time, his luck eventually ran out. His king-ten couldn't improve against Miltiadis Kyriakides' pocket sevens and that was that.
For Dan Murariu, Day 4 was pretty successful. He won a big hand with aces versus kings, and he also kicked out Stephen Chidwick. Chidwick wasn't the only household name to be eliminated today, either. Team PokerStars Pro Marcel Lüske was sent packing early on, and so was Jude Ainsworth.
Just 17 players remain with Pfutzenreuter leading the way. Will Pfutzenreuter hold his ground? Or will Gordillo end up on top and become the first Spanish EPT winner? First, they'll have to fight off some more guys on Day 5, as the EPT Vienna Main Event plays down to a final table of eight. Join us again tomorrow for Day 5 of the PokerStars.net European Poker Tour Vienna at noon local time.

With just three more hands to play Team PokerStars Pro Johnny Lodden lost a big chunk of his stack.
Lodden had in a pre flop all in against Roman Korenev's in a button (Korenev) versus small blind (Lodden) situation.
The board completely blanked out with and Lodden had to 467,000 quite a few chips.
The day is almost done, just three more hands before the remaining players will bag and tag their chips.
Timo Pfutzenreuter raised to 48,000 and from his immediate left it was Simeon Naydenov who three-bet. Wilfried Sigmund Harig moved all in from Naydenov's left for about 520,000 and quickly the action folded back to Pfutzenreuter.
Pfutzenreuter made the call and Naydenov folded immediately creating a heads-up showdown.
The board ran out and the spade on the river did it for Harig, while Pfutzenreuter is now very close to having the chip lead.
Dan Murariu had just lost a significant pot to Anthony Ghamrawi, but right after he regained some of those chips by knocked out Artem Metalidi.
Murariu raised preflop and Metalidi moved all in for about 300,000. The action folded back to the Romanian pro and he made the call.
The board ran out and Murariu knocked another player out as we're down to 18.

"Mr Lewzey, with this tanking, you're really insulting us." Are the surroundings of the Hofburg Palace causing players to behave themselves a little better than usual? Maybe, maybe not… The PokerStars Blog investigates here.
