Wynn Las Vegas Hosts Final Six in WPT World Championship Battle for the Title
A whopping 3,835 players took part in the WPT World Championship event in Vegas, and now only six remain in play – the final table is already formed. Although the tournament failed to beat its stated forty million dollar guarantee, it still attracted enormous attention and became the centerpiece of the festival at the Wynn Casino.
The list of those who will compete for the $5,600,000 prize is headed by the American Andrew Lichtenberg, better known as "Lucky Chewy". He has the largest stack before the start of the final day – 124 big blinds. His closest pursuer, the British Chris Moorman, has only 74 big blinds. It is worth noting that Andrew lives in Vegas, so he has an advantage over other players: according to him, the fact that he sleeps in his own bed gives him strength compared to those who are forced to travel and sleep in hotels.
The final six were made up of very strong and experienced professionals. Each of them (with the exception of Dan Sepiol) has a gold WSOP bracelet, and some even have more than one. The participants have met more than once at the final tables of other major events. For example, Ben Heath once beat Lucky Chewy in a heads-up tournament for 50 thousand and prevented him from winning the bracelet.
Each player has already guaranteed themselves a minimum prize of $1,207,000. This is a large amount, for example, for the ambassador of the ACR Poker room, Chris Moorman, this is already more than his best cash in offline events. However, the amount for first place is much higher, so each participant will try their best in the fight for the title and an incredible prize.
The final of the tournament will be played today, December 21. Broadcasts will be available on Twitch and YouTube platforms.
