Taiwan's Poker Ambassador Leads Final Table in Record WSOPE Championship
Out of 817 starting entries, only 8 finalists remain in the WSOP Europe Main Event. This event and its live broadcasts attract a lot of attention, because a huge sum of one and a half million euros is at stake for the future champion, and this has never happened in the history of this festival.
The chip leader before the start of the final table is the player from Taiwan, Eric Tsai. His stack is 95 big blinds. His closest pursuer will be the Lithuanian Kasparas Klezys, who has 56 big blinds to fight with. In general, the chip count before the start of the final day looks as follows:
It is interesting that among the finalists all represent different countries, not a single country is repeated.
Chip leader Eric Tsai is one of the most famous players in Taiwan, he is even part of the team of professionals at the Natural8 room and has won more than a million dollars in live events.
It is worth noting that none of the finalists has won WSOP tournaments before, so success in this event and winning €1,500,000 will surely be the biggest career achievement for each of them. And also each of the players has already guaranteed himself a minimum payout of €148,000.
