36 players became just six last night as the WPT Bay 101 Shooting Star event moved one step closer to a conclusion.
The mammoth main event kicked off with 718 players lining up for their shot at WPT glory (and a chance to take some bounties from the world's top players), but at the close of play last night just a handful of hopefuls remained. Leading the way with over 6 million chips was Mukul Pahuja who will take the lead in the WPT's POY race regardless of where he finishes later today. Also making it to the final table and looking for more than the $1.2 million top prize will be Nam Le. The US pro claimed the WPT Bay 101 title back in Season IV and will looking to become one of the only players to recapture the title for a second time. Thursday's session saw a number of high profile exits, including former chip leader Steve Sung, but when it came to determining a final table bubble boy it was Herbie Montalbano who claimed the dubious moniker. After committing his chips with 9h 8h on a Jd 8s 7d board he found himself in trouble against Shaun Seller's set of jacks. Things didn't get much better for Montalbano on the turn or river and as the 5c and Ah fell he was forced to relinquish his stack and head for the cashiers' desk to collect his $134,000 consolation prize. Following Montalbano's departure the final six was set and when play resumes later today one player will walk away with the latest WPT and more than $1 million in prize money. WPT Bay 101 Final Table Chip Counts:1. Mukul Pahuja - 6,470,000 2. Dylan Wilkerson - 5,850,000 3. Shaun Suller - 4,200,000 4. James Carroll - 2,075,000 5. Nam Le - 1,715,000 6. Garrett Greer - 1,235,000
