It took almost 6 hours of play before Day 5 came to an end. Chip leader when the day started was the last standing women, Ana Marquez, with 3.67 million chips. But unfortunately she was not one of the 8 players who made it to the final table. Chris Oliver, who was in the lead after Day 3, has accumulated a massive stack and now the question is if anyone will stand a chance against him on the final table. You probably get my drift after checking the final table details below.

Jason Mercier took the chip lead at the final table after that he had eliminated both Shawn Buchanan and Matt Glantz. However, he was not the only one playing fantastic poker at the final table and soon he had to give way for another player. Sam Stein, an American poker pro who has won close to 1,4 million dollars through his career, was for sure the best player at the final table. He made very few mistakes and always seemed to have a good read on his opponents.

Anyhow, when he and Mercier were the 2 last men standing, they had quite even stacks. It nearly took 4 hours before it all came to an end. The key pot in this heads up, which gave Jason Mercier a big lead (and also the win a few hands later), was actually a coin flip. Jason went all in with pocket threes and Stein called with A[d]J[d]. Stein flopped a pair of jacks and was the big favorite to take home the pot and the tournament, but Jason Mercier got really lucky as he made a straight thanks to lucky turn and river cards.

PokerStars 2010 NAPT (North American Poker Tour ) Venetian Main Event is soon coming to an end. Out of the 872 players who started Day 1 of the tournament, 29 are now left in the tournament playing Day 3. These 29 players are now fighting for a seat at the final table. The biggest name among the players who have made this far in the tournament is Team PokerStars Pro Vanessa Rousso.

Vanessa Rousso has played really good from the very first day of the tournament and she will definitely make it to the final table if she continue playing this well. However, Vannessa and all the other players in the top of the field are still far behind the chip leader, Sam Stein. Stein has accumulated a stack of 340,000! Almost 120k chips behind him is Eric Blair in second place.

The winner of NAPT Venetian will receive $827,648. In other words, a huge first place prize!
