The final table of six is set after three days of intensive poker at the World Poker Tour bestbet Open in Jacksonville, Florida. Danny Schechter will be the chip leader (3,825,000) when the final table kicks off at 20:00 CET tonight (2pm ET). Schechter only had 52,000 chips when Day 3 started, so you can just imagine what an incredible winning streak he has had.

He has almost double the amount of chips of his closest opponent (Michael Linster) and it will be interesting to see if he can keep a cool head at tonight's final table - where a first prize of $321,521 is up for grabs! 

Final table chip counts:
Seat 1: Pete Tinnesz - 1,035,000
Seat 2: Danny Schechter - 3,825,000
Seat 3: Michael Linster - 2,150,000
Seat 4: Pete Chwala - 1,180,000
Seat 5: David Bell - 1,980,000
Seat 6: David Diaz - 375,000
