WSOP Europe Berlin: Kevin MacPhee Leads Final 6, Seidel Bubbles Final Table

Kevin MacPhee ended up with the chip lead for the second day in a row as the final table of the 2015 WSOP Europe Berlin Main Event was reached on Thursday.

MacPhee started Day 4 with 1.15 million in chips and finished with a massive stack of 5,015,000! As you can imagine he was doing extremly well at the poker tables on Day 4, and he was responsible for the elimination of Erik Seidel to set the official final table of six players.

Seidel, who had the chance of winning a 9th WSOP bracelet, was running very well (for example: he eliminated Day 3 chip leader Dzmitry Urbanovich in 15th place) and had plenty of chips until picking up AK and losing all all in pre-flop against Kevin MacPhee's AA. 

MacPhee will bring more than 50% of the chips in play to the final table. He has a great oppurtunity of taking home his second career gold bracelet, but as the old saying goes "it ain't over till it's over". Anything is possible in tournament poker - especially when so many experienced tournament players are competing for a gold bracelet (check final table chip counts below)! 

Final Table Chip Counts:

Seat 1: Kevin MacPhee - 5,015,000
Seat 2: Kilian Kramer - 435,000
Seat 3: JC Alvarado - 1,070,000
Seat 4: Felix Bleiker - 215,000
Seat 5: Andrew Lichtenberger - 2,135,000
Seat 6: David Lopez - 520,000

Prize pool: 

1st€883,000
2nd€475,000
3rd€315,000
4th€225,000
5th€175,000
6th€130,000

Disappointing to see Erik Seidel eliminated from this event because it would have been nice to see him win another bracelet, his ninth in total. Good luck to all the final table players

ok is it only me or going all in preflop with ak against tournament leader while you are on the bubble and have more than enough chips to take at least 130K home sounds like a bullsh1t move. surely i am not on the same wavelength as seidel, but its not like he had aces and a guaranteed +ev call...

There is such a massive difference between the stack sizes for this final six!!I don't know what the blinds are but Felix is probably not feeling optimistic at this stage!!
Hey Pochui......I have just read his twitter post on his elimination and he did say it could have been avoided so you were on his wavelength!!!.....he also says he was coolered but AA v AK is hardly being coolered in my opinion.
