Cristos is almost a million chips in front of the next closest player, Cary Katz. Katz is looking for his first-ever PLO tournament win. His best previous finish in a PLO tournament is fourth.
Sean Winter enters as the short stack, but with back-to-back final tables, he will at least tie U.S. Poker Open leader and defending champion Stephen Chidwick for first place in the overall standings. If he manages to ladder to fifth or better, Winter will take the first place spot. Winter finished second in Event #1 to Chidwick and both players jumped into Event #2. Chidwick finished 18th.
Here’s a look at the seating chart for the final table.
