After five days of play, the final main event table at the WPT Barcelona is now down to six players and just a few pots from crowning an overall winner.
Having seen off some of the European tournament scene’s top competitors including Daniel Cates, Toby Lewis, Kevin MacPhee and Steve O’Dwyer, the players still alive in the €3,500 buy-in main event include local satellite qualifier Sergia Fernandez.The Spanish cash game grinder's story was akin to that of Cinderella after he found himself leading the field after Day 1B. However, he slipped into obscurity on the second day of play before subsequently coming back to top the leaderboard.For today’s final, Fernandez is one of the favourites despite the fact that he will start play with only the fifth largest stack.Leading the way is Chanracy Khun after the Canadain bagged 2,393,000 chips yesterday to finish ahead of runner-up Benjamin Pollak, who is one of the event's most experienced players and will begin play with 1,899,000 chips.Today’s final table is set to continue until a winner is crowned and the top prize of $258,448 is awarded.Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
