The final table of WPT Festa al Lago Main Event is finally set. 6 players will return to their seats tonight and fight for some serious cash, while lots of WPT/poker lovers around the globe will cheer for their favorite(s). Andy Frankenberger is one of the finalists and he has the chance to win his second WPT title tonight! It would be simply amazing if he manage to win 2 WPT titles within 2 months time! Chip leader is Randal Flowers, closely followed by Noah Schwartz who has over $1 million in tournament winnings.

So what happened to Annette Obrestad and Jeff Madsen who were in the very top of the field yesterday when there were only 13 remaining players? Unfortunately the poker gods weren't on Annette's or Madsen's side and both were sent off the rail almost straight away. Kind of disappointing, hah? Well, there are some really good players on the final table. Personally, I hope that Frankenberger wins his second WPT title!

After 4 days of intensive poker, the WPT Festa al Lago Main Event is down to 13 players. In other words, the final table is just probably an hour or two away when Day 5 starts tonight. Annette Obrestad, the norwegian poker pro, is in the lead with a 2 million stack. She played extremely well during Day 4 and managed to climb to the very top of the field in no-time. Right now, Annette is definitely the big favorite to take home the tournament. Well, the rest of  the players will probably put on a good fight as well. Jeff Madsen, who has won 2 WSOP bracelets and millions of dollars, will probably be Annette's toughest opponent in the remaining field of players.

The WPT Festa Al Lago Main Event attracted a quite big starting field and lots of big names in the poker world when it kicked off on Friday last week. Not less than 335 players paid the buy-in of $10,300 and created a big prize pool. Now three days have passed we're down to 41 players. All of them are already in the money but of course everyone is aiming for the WPT title and the first prize of $831,500.

Players who have a good chance of making it to the final table and all the way to the tile, as it seems right now, are Steve O´Dwyer (844,500), Jeff Madsen (814,000) and Randal Flowers (795,000). All of them have played very well so far and they have the experience to take down a big tournament. There are a few other big names left in the tournament as well, but further down in the field of remaining players. Just to mention 3 of them, Annette Obrestad (395,000), Barry Greenstein (210,000) and Gavin Smith (75,000).
