67 players are left fighting for $1.1m.
With registration open until midway through Day 2 the final numbers for this year’s WPT season finale weren’t confirmed until last night but when the numbers were in the prizepool had managed to top $3.5 million. After counting up all the entries and re-entries the final field for this year’s $25,500 final stood at 146, which means this year winner walks away with a top prize of just over $1 million. Leading the way at the close of yesterday’s session was Mike Linster. Having won his first WPT earlier this season in Florida at the bestbet Open, Linster continued his recent upswing by raking in 744,000 chips throughout the day. Linster’s position at the top is far from secure, however, as the likes of Dan Shak (617,300), Antonio Esfandiari (536,100) and yesterday’s player of the day, Jake Cody (453,500), are close behind. Indeed, it was Cody who enjoyed a rush of cards and eliminated the likes of Phil Ivey (Cody’s pocket jacks beating Ivey’s A-T) to complete a second day within the top five overnight chip counts. Today’s session will see a slew of famous faces continue their run towards the final table and the WPT’s most prestigious title.
