It took a little over nine hours to whittle the 36-runner field down to our final table of six. That is fairly good going for a poker tournament, but if we are honest, it felt like a drag compared to the crazy speed of yesterday.
Chip leader coming in tomorrow’s final table is Nicolas Fierro who bagged up 349,000 chips. He started the day as chip leader, and although he lost it for a lot of the day, he ended as clear chip leader. Here’s how the remaining six will line up tomorrow:
|6||Jarred Solomon||South Africa||266,500|
Rifat Palovic was the unfortunate player with the final table bubble tag. He busted soon after the final seven came together on one table. Nicloas Fierro took the Swedish scalp when his bettered Palevic’s on a board.
The story of the day must belong to Dovzhenko though. He came back with just 2,800 chips today and yet, here he is still in with nearly one hundred times what he started with. It'll be the comeback story of the year if he goes on to win tomorrow.
Those not quite as fortunate as him who had their hopes dashed included: Antony Lellouche, Victor Ramdin, Ludovic Lacay Alexander Kostritsyn and Roberto Romanello.
Until tomorrow where play will restart at 1pm. You’ll be able to find all the action here on pokernews.com and on the live stream at wsop.com. A second PLO and a fifth gold bracelet of the series will be awarded in the gloriously decadent surrounding of the Hotel Prestige.
