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.
