The penultimate day of the 2013 WPT Prague Main Event started with 21 players and after three levels of hard fought action just six are still dreaming of an early Christmas gift.
The man leading the way heading into the final table is Vasili Firsau (2,491,000). The Belarussian is no stranger to World Poker Tour success having finished second for €230,000 at October's WPT Grand Prix de Paris and he's on course to go a step better in the Czech capital.Following close behind Firsau is Andrey Shatilov who has a string of tournament final tables to name. The Russian is just four big blinds behind his East European rival and is well placed for a deep run tomorrow.Germany's Julian Thomas follows in third on 1,354,000 with start of day chip leader Ognjen Sekularac heading to the final table in fourth with 1,275,000. Bulgaria's Valeri Savov is fifth on 934,000 with Lithuanian Gintaras Simaitis the short stack on 666,000.2013 WSOP bracelet winner Roger Hairabedian was the final table bubble boy. The French veteran lost a chunk of change after making an optimistic river call with pockets sevens on A-6-5-3-K board only to run into Simaitis' set of kings. He departed soon after, his A-10 unable to crack Savov's pocket kings.Britain's Ryan Spittles started the day sixth on the leader board but could never build any momentum with big stacks Vasili Firsau and Ognjen Sekularac both seated to his left. The Sky Poker pundit eventually took a stand with A-10 which failed to overturn Hairabedian's pocket tens. 'Scotty77' pocketed $24,944 for his efforts.Today's finalists are guaranteed at least $52,297 with the eventual winner taking home $283,827. Railbirds can follow all the action via the World Poker Tour live stream which goes live at 1pm GMT.The chip counts are as follows:Seat 1: Ognjen Sekularac - 1,275,000Seat 2: Vasili Firsau - 2,491,000Seat 3: Julian Thomas - 1,354,000Seat 4: Gintaras Simaitis - 666,000Seat 5: Valeri Savov - 934,000Seat 6: Andrey Shatilov - 2,427,000
