Jon Kyte Leads the Final 46 in Record-Breaking EPT Prague Main Event

Norwegian poker pro Jon Kyte is at the forefront in the Main Event of EPT Prague, leading a competitive field as the player to beat. This year’s event has seen a record-breaking 1,285 entries, showcasing its popularity and prestige within the European poker scene. From the 175 players who started Day 2, only 46 hopefuls remain, all vying for the grand prize of €1,030,000 and the coveted EPT title.

Kyte is currently at the top of the chip counts with 2,200,000 chips. He is closely followed by seasoned EPT winner Steve O’Dwyer, who holds 1,915,000 chips, and Teun Mulder, who has 1,875,000 chips. In excellent form, Kyte arrived in Prague fresh off a win in The Festival Bratislava’s €550 Mixed Main Event HORSES and has become a familiar face on the European Poker Tour circuit.

Kyte’s significant breakthrough came in 2022 at the very venue he currently dominates. He finished 4th in the 2022 EPT Eureka Main Event in Prague and later achieved another 4th place at the EPT UKIPT London Main Event. 2023 is shaping up to be even more successful for Kyte, especially after securing a WSOP Circuit Ring in Tallinn, Estonia. You can dive deeper into his journey and insights in an interview here.
