The final table of the Season XVI WPT Amsterdam €3,300 Main Event has been set, with just six players remaining from the 207-entry field at Holland Casino. Dutch player Runs Feenstra (pictured) leads the way, and it’s a very towering lead at that. Feenstra’s 2.949 million is nearly 50% of the chips in play, and he’s more than 2.15 million ahead of the second-place stack. Feenstra is making his first WPT Main Tour cash.
In second place on the leaderboard with 793,000 is a familiar face to the WPT Champions Club, Ema Zajmovic. In Season XV, Zajmovic became the first female player to win an open WPT Main Tour event and she now has a chance to join the elite company of two-time WPT winners.

Seat 1: Louis Salter – 664,000
Seat 2: Rens Feenstra – 2,949,000
Seat 3: Ema Zajmovic – 793,000
Seat 4: Paul Berende – 576,000

Seat 6: Gary Miller – 791,000
Joining Feenstra and Zajmovic at the final table are Gary Miller with 791,000, Louis Salter with 664,000, Paul Berende with 576,000, and Firoz Mangroe with 450,000.
Miller is coming off an amazing performance at the recent WPT500 London event. In that event, Miller topped a field of more than 1,800 entries to win £114,000.
Salter is no stranger to success in the WPT Amsterdam Main Event. This is the WPT’s second trip to Amsterdam in Season XVI. The first time, Salter took second in the WPT Amsterdam Main Event and he’s now found his way to the final table once again. What’s more is that back in Season XIV, Salter placed ninth in the WPT Amsterdam Main Event.
Berende entered this event ninth on the Netherlands all-time money list with more than $2 million in live tournament earnings, according to HendonMob.com, and is making his third WPT Main Tour cash.
Mangroe is the most unknown player at the final table, coming in with just more than $100,000 in live tournament earnings, and he’s making his first WPT cash. The previous largest score on Mangroe’s résumé was just shy of $18,000, and he’s making a new all-time high result with this run.
Entering Thursday’s Day 3, Justin Bonomo led the final 24 players. Bonomo had a rough go of it and busted in 16th place, falling just two spots ahead of another notable player in JC Alvarado. Yuri Ishida (11th) and Beatrice Alisauskaite (14th) were two others to fall short of the final table.
The final table of this Season XVI WPT Amsterdam Main Event kicks off at 3 p.m. local time from Holland Casino on Friday. Awaiting the winner is the WPT Champions Cup and a €156,370 first-place prize, which includes a $15,000 seat to the season-ending WPT Tournament of Champions.
