The 2013 World Poker Tour Borgata Poker Open final table is set after four intensive days of play at the Borgata Casino in Atlantic City! Day 3 chip leader Cong Pham and Team PokerStars Pro Vanessa Selbst (the highest-earning woman in poker) will lead the remaining 6 players into tomorrow's televised final table. The average chip count is 5.9 million and Pham has a healthy stack of 10.1 million while Selbst has 7.9 million.

Seat 1. Eric Fields - 3,150,000 (31 bb)
Seat 2. Anthony Zinno - 6,935,000 (69 bb)
Seat 3. Vanessa Selbst - 7,910,000 (79 bb)
Seat 4. David Randall - 3,520,000 (35 bb)
Seat 5. Jeremy Kottler - 3,925,000 (39 bb)
Seat 6. Cong Pham - 10,190,000 (101 bb)

All finalist are already guaranteed $168,610 each, but, of course, that's peanuts compared to the first prize of $825,099 that is up for grabs! Although Selbst and Pham have played outstanding for the past 2 days and have big stacks to work with on the final table - don't be surprised if any of the other 4 players stand as the champion at the end of play tomorrow! We are saying this because, first off, it requires a lot of skill to reach a final table in a tournament with almost 1,200 players (many of whom were very experienced tournament players) and, secondly, the smallest stack is 3.1 million (31 bb) which means that a double up can change everything.

Let's hope for an exciting final table tomorrow! We will be back with a final table recap on Monday morning.

Big final for everyone, Selbst has to be a favourite but its al about the cards at this stage. Two bad beats or even one and bam, exit please.

I have a feeling that Vanessa's going to pack this one.

What's the buy-in for this tournament? I would put my money on Cong Pham though, he's agressive, very talented and has 101 big blinds ^^

But yeah at this point it's still anyone's game, we'll see. Selbst will probably start being very agressive once there are only 4-5 players left.

This should be a very interesting poker battle, some great players on that table for sure.

Now as a joke if you blind fold Vannessa she will probably get the first prize for sure Smile Smile
