Hossein EnsanThe recording-breaking field of 1,496 players has been narrowed down to a final table of eight after five intensive days of play. Out front is a German named Hossein Ensan who won Event #3 of this festival 10 days ago for €4,535, the biggest live cash of his career.

Well, it was his biggest live cash as he's now guaranteed to take home at least €121,300 on today's final table! Ensan was responsible for eliminating overnight leader Bram Haenraets, who won his main event ticket online on PokerStars for 82 bucks. Haenraets had been doing very well during Day 4 and put himself in a very good position to make it to the final table. But nothing worked out for the Dutchman in Day 5's six levels of play and he was eliminated on the final table bubble with ace-ten against Ensan's pocket aces.

Here's the final table line up:
Seat 1 - Ji Zhang, Germany, 6,480,000
Seat 2 - Kiryl Radzivonau, Belarus, 3,420,000
Seat 3 - Slaven Popov, Bulgaria, 3,720,000
Seat 4 - Andre Lettau, Germany, 5,405,000
Seat 5 - Hossein Ensan, Germany, 10,295,000
Seat 6 - Andrea Dato, Italy, 2,825,000
Seat 7 - Andrey Shatilov, Russia, 3,675,000
Seat 8 - Sam Phillips, USA, 9,035,000

Andrey ShatilovAs you can see above, there aren't any superstars in the poker world left in the tournament. However, after some research we quickly found out that Russia's Andrey Shatilov has played a few WPT and EPT final tables in the past 2 years, including a 6th place finish for $325k in the 2013 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event. According to PokerStars Blog, he is a Supernova Elite on PokerStars who buys into these live events with FPPs. It cost him 425k FPPs to enter this tournament, and he's now guaranteed to get away with at least €121,300! A pretty decent investment!

There are no names i recognise on the final table but they must be very good players to get through such a large field and whoever wins this would have thoroughly deserved this

Sam from the vs is the man
They made a deal and he gets 1 miljoen euro not $
Other two take one 700k other 660k

They are playing for 90 k now........

Sam is the best player at the table,.....

He won lots of online at pokerstars tournaments 109$ buy-in and higher...
THey guy Lattau is irritating me and his friends.......
The whole ept i hear seven because there was one hand in day 1..
And now they keep saying 7....
Even when another player was all-in and the guy lattau wasnt in the still shouting Seven!!! seven..
When someone play for his stack and needs another cards is low on respect Thumbs Down
