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).
