Sheringham, who has become a keen player after ending his football career, lies in 15th position overall in Portugal's biggest ever tournament, which boasts a first prize of €467,835.

The Pokerstars ambassador returns for Day 4 today with 381,000 chips.

He set up his huge stack yesterday when he made a full house versus William Thorson, not long after he had texted a mutual friend of theirs that he planned to take the Swede's chips. That pot crippled Thorson who went on to finish in 26th place pocketing €9,312.

The 44-year-old has cashed in two previous EPT events, his best finish being 49th at last year's EPT London, where he walked away with £11,600.

His biggest ever win was £40,481 at the World Series of Poker Europe event, also in London, last year, although a final table finish here would eclipse that.
