The World Poker Tour Prague main event attracted a field of 571 players and became the biggest European WPT event ever (the previous attendance record was set by WPT Vienna last season). Now, after 4 days of play, the tournament is down to a final table, and these are the players that will do everything in their power to take down the tournament and the first place prize of $630,263.


Seat 1: Adria Balaguer ~ 1,315,000

Seat 2: Andrey Pateychuk ~ 2,310,000

Seat 3: Benjamin Pollak ~ 4,865,000
Seat 4: Russell Carson ~ 725,000

Seat 5: Stanislav Kretz ~ 6,300,000
Seat 6: Sigurd Estelad ~ 1,575,000

As you can see above, two players (Stanislav Kretz & Benjamin Pollak ) have accumulated a lot more chips than the other finalists. Stanislav Kretz (photo), from Germany, isn't a well-known person in the poker world, but if he continues playing as good as during Day 3, he has a good chance to take home the tournament. Benjamin Pollak, from France, is not a newcomer in the poker world. Pollak has played major poker tournaments such as WPT, EPT and WSOP since 2007 with many good results. However, his biggest tournament cash so far (€100,800) is nowhere close to the money he can win today.


The final table kicks off at 15:30 CET and you can follow the action via the WPT live stream

The cold outside wont cold down the will of all this players to get to the first prize. Big lead from Kretz, but Pollak is close, and, besides Carson, everyone still have a word to say. As for Carson, he needs luck on his side to make better than 6th place, but everything is possible in this final tables.

Annoying if you get that kind off beat 4handed. J9 vs A10
Hit J on flop then QK following up. Tongue
