WSOPE 2015 Main Event: The Final TableOctober 23, 2015 12:05 pm
The €10,450 WSOP Europe Main Event was held at the Spielbank Berlin, and attracted 313 players to create a prize pool worth €3,067,400. Day 4 of the tournament then saw 21 competitors return to the action, and by the end of the day that number had been reduced to a final table of six, with all remaining players now guaranteed at least €130,000 for their efforts, but with an €883,000 top prize awaiting the eventual winner.
Amongst those players falling short of a final table apperance on the day was Dominik Nitsche in 20th (€23,500), Dimitar Danchev in 19th (€23,500), Adrien Allain in 16th (€28,700), Dzmitry Urbanovich in 15th (€28,700), Ardit Kurshumi in 13th (€36,000), Conor Beresford in 12th (€46,000), and Mario Sanchez in 8th (€75,000). Also, just missing out on a place at the final table was 8-times WSOP bracelet winner Erik Seidel, whose six-bet shove with A-K foundered against the A-A of Kevin MacPhee. As Seidel later tweeted:
“Came in 7th #WSOPEMainEvent. Got coolered but could have avoided going bust on the hand AA>AK”
One of the most active players throughout the day was WSOP and EPT winner Kevin MacPhee (photo), who started proceedings as the chip leader and managed to boost his stack five fold to take 5,015,000 chips through to the final table. WPT champion Andrew Lichtenberger was the second US pro to book a place at the final table, with other finalists including Mexican pro JC Alvarado, Spain’s David Lopez, Germany’s Kilian Kramer, and Switzerland’s Felix Bleiker.
The finalists are now taking a day’s break, before returning to the action at 12pm Saturday, and playing down to this year’s WSOPE Main Event champion.
