The Eureka3 Prague Main Event drew a field of 1,315 players - who have battled it out for the past few days and become a final table of 8. The finalists will return at noon local time and fight for a first prize of €226,400!
The chip leader is the Canadian PokerStars qualifier Ami Barer (picture above) with 7.2 million in chips. The 22-year-old "only" needs to finish in 5th place to secure the biggest live tournament cash of his career!
That's right! His biggest live cash to date is €45,000, however, he has won much more online (about $5.5 million) under the nickname "UhhMee". His online poker resume is quite impressive and includes two FTOPS titles at Full Tilt Poker and a runner-up finish in event #3 of the 2011 SCOOP (PokerStars).
