Posted by Steve Ruddock on Dec 05, 2011 Posted in Tournament News, WPT News | No Comments »

For the six players that will return for the final table of the inaugural World Poker Tour Prague Main Event on Monday, Sunday would prove to be a trying test of stamina and focus, as play creeped into the early morning hours, ending at nearly 5AM with the elimination of Jan Bendik in 7th place. Because of the very late night, the remaining players were given a slight reprieve by WPT officials, who have delayed the start of the final table until 3PM local time.

Despite the loss of Bendik in 7th place, as well as Canadian poker pro Mike “SirWatts” Watson in 9th place, the final table will feature a very strong lineup. The final table features a number of talented players that will be familiar to poker enthusiasts, including Sigur Eskelund, Andrey Pateychuk, and online poker superstars Russell “RDCRSN” Carson, however, the real story at the final table will be the battle between the two chip-leaders, Stanislaw Kretz and Benjamin Polack, who between them have over 11 million chips, compared to the less than 6 million chips held by the other four players combined!

Here is a look at the seating assignments and chip counts for Monday’s final table at the WPT Prague Main Event:

* Seat 1: Adria Balaguer – 1,315,000

* Seat 2: Andrey Pateychuk – 2,310,000

* Seat 3: Benjamin Polak – 4,865,000

* Seat 4: Russell Carson – 725,000

* Seat 5: Stanislaw Kretz – 6,300,000

* Seat 6: Sigur Eskeland – 1,575,000
