The WPT Seminole Rock ‘N’ Roll Poker Open has now reached the official final table of six. Andrew Wilson will have a large head start en route to a victory, owning over forty percent of the chips in play with his 33,425,000 (167 bb) stack. Wilson has already netted his largest live tournament cash to date but will have to take down a stacked final table if he wants to become a WPT champion.

Standing in the way of Wilson earning that feat are a few WPT champions. Chad Eveslage took down the WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic just last month and is in the hunt for Player of the Year. Eveslage will be starting the day second on the totem pole with 12,700,000 (64 bb) and could surpass Steve Buckner when the last chance saloon has closed for business.

To no surprise, former WPT Player of the Year Brian Altman is in the mix here in The Sunshine State with his four largest cashes all coming right here in Florida. The three-time WPT champion will be entering the final day with 11,850,000 as he looks to add another title to his already impressive resume.

The last WPT champion that makes up this stacked final table is none other than the reigning champion himself Gediminas Uselis who has now a trip around the globe without being eliminated in the Seminole Rock ‘N’ Roll Poker Open. Uselis could conquer what only a few have before him if he defends his title. He will begin the day with 8,350,000 (42 bb) in what is surely one of the highest-quality final tables in recent memory.

Official Final Table:
Seat 1. Chad Eveslage – 12,700,000 (64 bb)
Seat 2. Robel Andemichael – 1,400,000 (7 bb)
Seat 3. Joshua Kay – 9,250,000 (46 bb)
Seat 4. Gediminas Uselis – 8,350,000 (42 bb)
Seat 5. Andrew Wilson – 33,425,000 (167 bb)
Seat 6. Brian Altman – 11,850,000 (59 bb)

The final six have locked up a minimum of $167,000 with the eventual champion taking home $785,800 + $10,400 WPT World Championship seat for their victory.
