The $5 million guaranteed WPT Online Championship has reached its eight-handed final table and what a final table it’s turned out to be. On May 20, those eight players return to the partypoker virtual felt and compete for a gargantuan top prize worth $1,048,087.
WPT Online Championship Final Table
|4||Alexander Clark||United Kingdom||14,407,969|
|7||Nikolay Ponomarev||United Kingdom||5,132,492|
Thirty-four players sat down on the penultimate day of the WPT Online Championship with Sam Greenwood leading the way. The field gradually whittled down with the likes of Max Silver, Simon Higgins, former WSOP Main Event champion Martin Jacobson, Matthias Eibinger, and Ami Barer busting.
Belarus’s Dmitry Yurasov was the ninth-place finisher. He collected $51,120 and his exit set the official final table.
Swedish star Christian Jeppsson is the man to catch going into the final table. The Swede has a shade over 17.5 million chips in his arsenal. Only seven opponents stand between him and $1,048,087. Each of those opponents has reached this Stellar final table on merit and any of them will be a worthy champion.
Sam Greenwood returns second in chips with a stack of 16 million while Pascal Hartmann is in a healthy position, sitting down with almost 15 million chips, enough for third-place.
Alexander Clark has 14.4 million chips with everyone else sitting behind between 2.2 million and 9.1 million betting tokens.
Play resumed at 20:00 CET and the action is being streamed on our Twitch channel.
WPT #43 – High Roller: $1M Gtd
Another huge WPT Online Series event that’s reached its final table is the latest $10,300 High Roller. Only eight of the 101 starters remain in the hunt for the near $250,000 top prize.
Andras Nemeth finds himself in the familiar position of chip leader at the business end of a major online poker tournament. Nemeth finished Day 1 with 911,709 chips in his stack, over 22 big blinds more than his nearest rival Daniil Kiselev of Russia.
Bringing up the rear when play resumes at 20:00 CET is Dan Smith. You may recall Smith won the $25,500 Super High Roller earlier in the week. Joining this trio are such luminaries as Jorma Nuutinen, David Peters, Fabrizio Gonzalez, David Gent and Mark Davies.
|4||David Peters||Costa Rica||306,906|
