A champion will be crowned today in the 2019 World Series of Poker Europe €10,350 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event.
At 2 p.m. local time, the final table will continue with six finalists making their way back to the podium. They are all guaranteed to collect a six-figure prize of €178,171 for their efforts, but all eyes will be on the title, the top prize of €1,133,678, and the bracelet.
Heading into the final day with a big lead is two-time bracelet winner Anthony Zinno with 16,845,000. Zinno came into Day 5 third in chips yesterday, but he was responsible for multiple eliminations, including the ones of Marek Blasko and Julien Martini at the final table. That vault him into first place and he's hoping to carry that momentum forward. Zinno claimed his second bracelet just this summer and will be looking to add a third one to his collection.
The second biggest stack belongs to Alexandros Kolonias (12,150,000). Kolonias started Day 5 as one of the shorter stacks but he managed to start building early and he boosted his stack even more when he eliminated Jakob Madsen at the final table.
Anh Do will start the day in third place with 8,725,000. Do went into the final table as the chip leader yesterday but he doubled Claas Segebrecht up during the last level of the night, dropping in rank.
Dario Sammartino will return with 7,100,000 in the bag. This is Sammartino's sixth WSOP final table this year. He was the runner-up of the 2019 WSOP Main Event this summer and he is only the fourth player to have reached the final table of the WSOP and WSOPE Main Event during the same year. Sammartino has a very impressive resume with $9,545,240 in WSOP cashes and dozens of cashes on the high roller circuit. The only thing missing to his resume is a bracelet, and he will try to get it today.
Claas Segebrecht (6,400,000) and Rifat Palevic (2,915,000) round up the final six. Segebrecht already has a Circuit ring and will try to match is with a bracelet. As for Palevic, he won his first bracelet at the 2017 WSOP. However this is his first cash of 2019 and he will try to make it a memorable one, and top it with his second bracelet.
