After four action-filled tournament days in the 2021 partypoker LIVE MILLIONS North Cyprus $5,300 Main Event, the final nine players out of a field of 839 entries will be battling for the lion's share of the $3,859,400 prize pool. All finalists have $68,695 locked up but the eyes will be set on the trophy and the top prize of $683,285 that comes along with it.

The stage on the feature table of the Merit Crystal Cove Hotel Casino & Spa in Girne, North Cyprus, is certainly set and the players will be introduced in a brief ceremony ahead of the final showdown, as has been the case in every major live poker event at one of Europe's most exciting locations.

Giorgiy Skhulukhiya leads the finalists with a stack of 18,455,000 ahead of Harpreet Gill (16,820,000) and both have already established a small gap over the rest of the field. Majid Kamarei, Hadi Khadra, and Pokercode Grindhouse member Fabian Bernhauser all have above average stacks while Cyprus-based German poker pro Robert Heidorn is among the short stacks.

partypoker sponsored pro Joni Jouhkimainen was eliminated on the final table bubble by Skhulukhiya to set up the final table and cement the status of the Georgian as the chip leader for the final table.

The action will resume with 57:42 remaining in level 30 at blinds of 125,000-250,000 with a big blind ante of 250,000. The final table is scheduled to recommence at 2pm local time on Monday, September 27 but the PokerNews updates will be based on the security delay of the live stream action on the partypoker YouTube and Twitch channels.
