Day 6 has concluded at the WPT Championship and the final table was been decided

April 27, 2009 by Dan Brown in WPT Championship

The final table of the WPT Championship event has finally been decided after 6 days. They started the day with 10 players and about 5 hours later were down to the final 6. Talk about dragging out the day! Is it really necessary to stop play and continue for a 7th day? Tournament Poker has always been about longevity and the ability to keep your wits about you after 14 hours in a chair. Are these guys prima donnas or poker players?

The players hit the floor around noon on Friday and immediately got into action. Play was a little tight to start out and nobody seemed to want to be the first one to get bounced out on the next to last day. This however is the best time for aggressive players and big chip stacks to wreak havoc. As stacks were dwindled down over the next couple of hours, the players finally started to fall.

It took 3 hours, but Bruno Fitoussi finally was claimed as the first victim with the infamous KK hand. Timoshenko had pushed with AJ and of course, the A hit the flop. Reduced to a 2 outer, his hand never improved and out he went. With his exit, the action picked up and within the next 2 hours, 3 more players would fall to establish the final table.

All eyes have to be on one of the most successful players of our time in Scotty Nguyen. He is sitting 4th overall with a little over $3.25 million in chips, but he has been in this position before and it would be no surprise to see him make the $10 million deficit to the chip leader very early on the final day.
