McCorkell and Adams at GSOP Final Table

McCorkell and Adams at GSOP Final Table

Saturday, 15 December 2012

The EPT event isn't the only big tournament that draws to a close in Prague today. The final day of the biggest GSOP tournament to date resumes this lunchtime and there are high hopes of more British success.

Bluff Europe highlighted Craig McCorkell as a Brit to watch at this year's WSOP and he certainly delivered after taking the $3k shootout bracelet. He followed that up by winning the the OnGame Network's $150k online Champion Chip tournament and is poised for more success heading into the final table at GSOP Prague. McCorkell returns third in the chip counts behind Tapio Vihakas and Amit Zulkowitz.

Fellow Brit Matthew Adams has also made the final table, lying 8th out of 9 when play resumes tomorrow lunchtime.

Seat 1: Amit Zulkowitz – 2,284,000
Seat 2: Oliver Schaffman – 1,118,000
Seat 3: Thomas Taubenschuss – 823,000
Seat 4: Joel Lindpere – 802,000
Seat 5: Rocco Palumbo – 798,000
Seat 6: Tapio Vihakas – 2,977,000
Seat 7: Mathew Adams – 541,000
Seat 8: Craig McCorkell – 2,092,000
Seat 9: Thomas Mercier – 367,000

Blinds are at 10,000/20,000 with a 2,000 ante.
