Thomas Marchese goes into play as chip leader, stacked at 1,832,000. Of note, if Marchese were to pull out a victory, this would only be his first leg of poker’s elusive Triple CrownTM, as he won a NAPT event which apparently isn’t as good as winning an EPT event for whatever reason.
Marchese is followed by Jeff Forrest (979,000) and Sorel Mizzi (788,000).
Other notables remaining include and are certainly limited to Hoyt Corkins (335,000) and a-still-persuing-his-triple-crown Jason Mercier (322,000).
Our revised TV final table prediction contains some old names and some new: Jeff Forrest, Nikolai Yakovenko, Besnik Ziba, Dave Inselberg, and Keven Stammen.
