A night after Sam Soverel carried the chip lead into his second British Poker Open final table, Cary Katz repeated the feat.
The High Roller of the Year contender made big hand after big hand and bagged the biggest stack heading into Friday’s £10K Short Deck final table. Katz’s 2,900,000 is good for more than double his closest competitor and he’ll look to parlay that advantage into his first Short Deck title.
Anson Tsang is closest to Katz and he came close to making history in this year’s World Series of Poker $10K Short Deck event. The Hong Kong pro finished 3rd, while another Hong Kong King that also advanced won WSOP gold.
Danny Tang took down the $50,000 NLH High Roller to close out the 50th World Series of Poker and he’ll return as the short stack when he tries to win his first High Roller Triple Crown event at the first British Poker Open.
Sam Greenwood and Robert Flink round out the lineup with their second final table appearances. Greenwood finished 5th in Event #3 and Flink finished 3rd in Event #1.
With multiple players securing their second cashes of the series, the Event #4 final table could play a big part in deciding the BPO champion. Watch the final five return to play to a winner live on PokerGO on Friday, with play resuming at 12 PM local time.
The PokerGO live stream will be on a one-hour delay and begins at 8:00 AM ET/5:00 AM PT.
