It's final table time here in London as our remaining eight players are getting ready to fight tooth and nail in the hopes of becoming the next EPT champion. Jeff Rossiter is the chip leader with 5,205,000 in chips and while Australians have made four final tables previously, there has never actually been an Australian winner of an EPT despite a large number of incredibly talented players.
Two other players have previous EPT final experience, Jan Olav Sjavik came 3rd for £168,600 at EPT London back in Season 3 when Team PokerStars Pro Vicky Coren caught a lucky river to eliminate the Norwegian. Robin Ylitalo made the final table of EPT Campione in Season 8, finishing 8th for €54,000 but the Swede will be hoping to make it a little further up the ladder this time.
Ludovic Geilich may not have finaled an EPT but the Scottish-German player won the UKIPT event in Marbella earlier this year for €130,000 so this setup will not be totally alien to him. Rounding off the final table are Georgios Karakousis, Stefan Vagner, Leo McClean and Kully Sidhu, all hoping to take down the title.
The final table will start at 1pm but will be shown on a one hour delay on the live feed, for that reason we'll will be reporting updates on the same delay. Therefore full updates will follow from here from 2pm local time.
