After three starting days and 10 hours of play on Day 2 yesterday, 13 players will return to the King’s Casino for the final day of Event #1: €1,100 No-Limit Hold’em MONSTER STACK. Carlo Savinelli has 1,340,000 chips and will be looking to put on that first 2017 WSOPE bracelet at the end of the day.

It won’t be a walk in the park though as he is followed by 12 other players including Serge Danis with 1,190,000 chips, Ismael Bojang and Viliyan Petheleshkov with 1,035,000 chips, who also have over a million chips right now. Other contenders for that €117,708 for first place and the bracelet include Sergio Fernandez (980,000), Pierre Neuville (825,000) and Walter Treccarichi with 10 big blinds (310,000).

The players are guaranteed to pocket at least €4,726 but they will all have their eyes set on the honour of getting the first winner photo taken during this World Series of Poker Europe. Action is set to restart at 2 p.m local time at level 25 with blinds of 15,000/30,000 with a 5,000 ante. The live stream with hole-cards and a 30-minute delay will start once the official final table has been reached.

This is what the final thirteen players are playing for:
