The final table is set and today at 4:00 pm ET you will be able to follow the action (30-minute delay with hole cards and commentary) via the WPT Live Stream. When play begins in about 12 hours, there are about 5 minutes left in Level 21, and the blinds will then increase to 8k-16k with a 2k ante. Below is the official chip counts, with the big blinds calculated at 8k-16k.

Seat 1. Steven Brackesy - 1,807,000 (112 BBs)
Seat 2. Daniel Santoro - 1,163,000 (72 BBs)
Seat 3. Christian Harder - 1,293,000 (80 BBs)
Seat 4. Bob Carbone - 588,000 (36 BBs)
Seat 5. Andy Frankenberger - 374,000 (23 BBs)
Seat 6. Eli Berg - 496,000 (31 BBs)

As you can see above, Jonathan Little, 2-time WPT Champ, didn't make it to the final table. Little was eliminated in 8th place for $54,060, and most probably he's very disappointed with himself today since he was so close of making it to another WPT final table. Well, we can expect to hear a lot more from Little in the future!

Now, back to the final table. In seat 1 is Steven Brackesy (picture) with 1,807,000 - just about 500k more than Christian Harder in second place. Brackesy has been around in the poker scene for quite a few years, but his 2 biggest cashes so far are about $50,000 each. So, now he has a great opportunity to give his bankroll a big boost. If he wins, he will take home amazing $449,910 and his first WPT title. If everything goes wrong, he's still guaranteed $83,580. Quite a lot of money for someone like Brackesy who usually plays $200 - $1k tournaments.

It will not be easy for anyone to talk about a victory before the game restarts. Andy has only 23 BBs, so he will probably wait for a better hand to risk what can put him closer to the lead or out of the table. About Steven, he cant wait for others to do the hard work to see who will play the final HU with him, as his chipleading can be quickly compromised.
