Vasili Firsau Takes Massive Leads Into WPT Grand Prix de Paris Final Table

The final table of the 2013 bwin World Poker Tour Grand Prix de Paris is set after 4 days of intensive play! Unfortunately big names such as Kara Scott, Matt Salsberg and Marvin Rettenmaier fell during the fourth day. On the other hand, Christina Lindley (one of few ladies to enter the tournament) and familiar faces such as Elliot Smith (Canada) and Kimmo Kurko (Finland) are amongst the final 6 players.

Day 3 chip leader Vasili Firsau (picture) will be the one to keep an eye on at the final table. The Belarusian pro has been on fire in the past two days and it will be interesting to see if anyone will be able to stop him from taking down the whole thing given that he holds 50% of the chips in play!!!

His biggest tournament cash to date is a 10th place finish for $99k at the 2013 EPT Grand final in Monte Carlo. No matter what happens on today's final table, he's guaranteed a minimum payday of $90,845 with the chance of going all the way to the first prize of $317,867!

Seat 1: Peter Astopolous - 269,000
Seat 2: Kimmo Kurko - 116,000
Seat 3: Elliot Smith - 782,000
Seat 4: Mohsin Charania - 644,000
Seat 5: Christina Lindley - 880,000
Seat 6: Vasili Firsau - 2,893,000

Tough to be chip leader and retain it over a period of play sometimes but in a fairly weak field that's a big big advantage.
First prize is pretty tasty considering his biggest cash was 100k but that's still big nuts compared to what we make.

Too bad that even he had this huge advantage he wasn't able to maintain it and did not take the first prize...

I think once again we get a proof that being chip leader doesn't guarantee you the top place too.
