The final table of the WPT Legends of Poker event has lived up to its name with Greg Mueller, Jeff Madsen and Ali Eslami amongst the final six.
The man to beat though is Josh Hales who returns with more than double the stack of his closest rival. Hales starts the final day with 7.325m chips, followed by Mueller 3.49m, Raouf Melek 3.13m and Ali Eslami on 2.9m. There's then quite a gap to Jeff Madsen on 1.03m who is just ahead of short stack Max Steinberg on 1.02m.Jim Willerson was the unfortunate bubble boy, running into the coolest of coolers when his pocket kings ran into Hales' aces. $60,400 should provide some consolation.With blinds of 30,000-60,000 blinds and a 10,000 ante the short stacks will have to move quickly to make a serious challenge.The six finalists are all guaranteed $75,400 with the winner set to walk away with $500,000.Join us tomorrow to see who's celebrating.

Things are really starting to heat up at this year’s WSOP with a number of events all now ensuring the riffling of chips doesn’t stop echoing through the halls of The Rio. Indeed, yesterday’s early session saw two bracelet winners crowned in the form of John Beauprez and Mike Gorodinsky.
Who's the best in Europe?
While most attention has understandably been focussed on Wembley these past few days there was the not so small matter of the latest leg of the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) to consider over the weekend.
