There are only six players left after 5 thrilling days of poker in Prague. Ilkin Amirov will lead the remaining players into today's final table with 9.9 million in chips. Amirov, who is the first person from the former Soviet Republic of Azerbaijan to make an EPT final table, slowly worked his was to the chip lead early on Day 5.
Once out in front, Amirov won one of the most spectacular hands in EPT's 12th season when his KK held up against pocket queens, pocket jacks and 98 of diamonds in a four-way all-in pre-flop pot! It was a pot worth nearly 10 million!
Amirov did well on Day 5 to say the least, nevertheless he still has a lot of work to do on today's final table where most of his opponents have healthy stacks (final table chip counts below). Check back tomorrow for a recap of how the final table played out.
