Dominik Nitsche Looking for another WPT Title

Dominik Nitsche Looking for another WPT Title

Monday, 11 November 2013

The final session of this year's WPT South Africa might have started with Eugene du Plessis in pole position but all eyes were on Dominik Nitsche. Having taken down the event last year the German pro came into today's final third in chips and with the bulk of the rail's support.

Overall the WPT Emperors Palace Poker Classic attracted a total of 191 entrants which means today's winner will walk away with $132,128 and whilst Nitsche is amongst the favourites it won't be easy sailing.

Also looking to continue his positive run in South African WPT's is Wesley Wiegand. Like Nitsche, Wiegand also made last year's final but finished just short of the title when he hit the rail in third. When the action kicked off earlier the plucky grinder was amongst the short stacks but still in a position to cause the chip leaders some problems.

Also amongst the final six players were three short stacks all looking to double-up within a few hands of the start which certainly made the early going tough for all involved. At the time of writing one of the finale's desperate grinders, Ronit Chamani, has already lived up to this expectation by moving all-in twice in two hands.

So far all six players are still in contention for this season's WPT South Africa title.
