The PokerStars European Poker Tour Sanremo Main event is down to a final table of 8. Inge Forsmo, the Day 2 and 3 chip leader from Norway, is not among the finalist. He lost 2 big pots at the beginning of Day 5 and was eliminated in 23rd place. Jason Tompkins, the winner of Day 4, made it to the final table, though. Tompkins will bring 3.6 million chips (third place) to the final table.
Jason Lavallee, a 26-year-old PokerStars qualifier from Canadan, will lead the way into the final table today with a stack of 5.5 million chips. Lavallee will have to look out for his closest chip-rival Ludovic Lacay with 5.3 million chips. The Frenchman has a very intensive style of playing that never allows his opponents to rest. Lacay and Lavallee totally dominated Day 5 but avoided each other most of the time. On the final table that won't be so easy, though.
It will be very interesting to see how things play out on the final table. All of the finalists are guaranteed €65,450 each, and the winner will take home an amazing €800,000 first place prize!
