After four days, over 200 players have been narrowed down to just eight with Danish pro Theo Jorgensen leading the pack by quite some margin.
He had maintained a healthy stack of 800,000 – 1,100,000 throughout the six hours it took to burst the final table bubble but on the preliminary final (ten-handed) table he really got some momentum going.Ilan Boujeneh had 4-bet bluffed for most of his stack with Ah-9h and Jorgensen put his stack in with JJ. No aces or hearts helped his opponent and the WSOPE PLO champion’s stack soared to over 2.7m.The full final table seats and chip counts are as follows:Seat 1: Mickael Guenni -- 538,000Seat 2: Theo Jorgensen -- 2,693,000Seat 3: Antoine Amourette -- 489,000Seat 4: Per Linde -- 584,000Seat 5: Jimmy Ostensson -- 436,000Seat 6: Nourredine Aïtaleb -- 810,000Seat 7: Fabrice Touil -- 1,183,000Seat 8: Arnaud Mattern -- 678,000The final table begins on Saturday as well as the €20,000 high roller. Each player at the final table is guaranteed €70,000 with a massive €633,092 being awarded to the winner. Who will probably be Danish.
