The stage is set for the final day of World Poker Tour's Season XII. After 5 days of action only 6 players remain in the Borgata 2014 Spring Open World Poker Tour Championship event with hopes to win the massive $1.35 million first place prize.
World Series of Poker bracelet winner Keven Stammen will wake up today holding the chiplead headed into the final table with Byron Kaverman, the man responsible for eliminating Day 3 and 4 chipleader Eric Afrait, not too far behind him.
Borgata Spring Open Main Event champion, Abraham Korotki, continues his hot streak and finds himself third in chips and looking to make back-to-back titles in the same series. Poker pro Curt “Psycho Ninja” Kohlberg is also looking to make a career high score, hoping to best his 2011 SHRPS runner up finish.
In the fifth and sixth position are two of the bigger names left. Tony Dunst, host of the World Poker Tour’s Raw Deal, is shirking his responsibilities in the booth for a shot at poker super stardom. Sitting 5th in chips, the well-known personality is looking to become a 2-time WPT Champ for a payday that would likely be somewhere in the earnings of, we’re guessing, 10 years worth of Raw Deal segments. Rounding out the top six is another tournament beast in Ryan “g0lfa” D’Angelo, who has come close many times to a major title on his way to his over $1.5 million in career earnings.
The final table will be streamed live with the pre-show starting at 4:00pm EST and the action, presumable, kicking off at 4:30. For action as it happens, be sure to check out the PokerNews live updates team as well.
