There will be just six players returning to the felt for the final day of Event #11: €1,650 No-Limit Hold'em 6-Max. Tony Tran will lead the way after bagging up an impressive stack of 5,080,000 chips on Day 2, with each player looking to capture their first World Series of Poker gold bracelet.
It was a field of 535 total entries that attracted some of the best players making their stay at King's Resort in Rozvadov and the field has been whittled down to just six players after two days. Play was halted on Day 2 once the final table was reached to make way for the final table to be live-streamed today. The players will kick things off at 12 p.m. noon local time but the live stream will not begin until 6:30 p.m. at which point the live updates will commence.
Joining Tran at the final table will be Simone Andrian who made a late charge in the last couple of levels to finish the day with 4,450,000 chips. Josef Snejberg bagged up 4,005,000 chips to round out the top three chip counts. Norbert Baumgartner (3,875,000), Zlatin Penev (2,240,000), and Jan Bednar (1,820,000) will also have something to say before the night is done.

Each player has already locked up a payday of €22,410 but each elimination now comes with an important pay jump. They will all have their sights set on the top prize of €1158,616 and the fine piece of jewelry that comes with it.
