Timo Pfutzenreuter’s best result to date was third place in the WSOP $5k PLO Six-Handed event last summer for $194,14 where he was eliminated by eventual winner Steve Gross. Pfutzenreuter also went deep at EPT8 Berlin, finishing 41st for €15,000 and his total live tournament winnings already amount to more than $300,000. Originally from Bonn in Germany but now studying business at university in Vienna, Pfutzenreuter has been playing EPTs since Season 6. He also has solid online results including winning the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up in 2011 for $117,000 and fifth in TCOOP Event 47 for $104,100. He also took down the PokerStars Monday OLO for $17,000, a PokerStars GCOOP Event for $11,000 and was runner-up in the Sunday 500 for $55,500. He’s spent much of this week reading The Wolf of Wall Street at his table. He won his seat in a €215 NLHE Deep Hyper-Turbo a month ago.

Finance student Pablo Gordillo won his seat on PokerStars.es in a €250 seat+expenses qualifier. He’s had several attempts at qualifying so was thrilled to finally make it. He had a rocky start to the event however – down to just 4,000 chips on Day 1 and starting Day 2 with just 20,600. His fortunes turned on Day 3 when he won a huge pot against Portugal’s Michel Dattani to take the chip lead. He ended the day as chip leader and was second in chips to Timo Pfutzenreuter at the end of Day 4. This is already his biggest cash – either live or online. He came third in a €200 NL side event at Estrellas Madrid in January for € 2,421 and cashed for €12,000 in a Sunday Especial on PokerStars.es two months ago. He said: “Yes, I thought I could make the final. I felt nervous when I was in my hotel room but once I was at the table I felt very calm and confident”. Gordillo came to Vienna with friends Benjamin Garcia and Miguel Riera and all three are planning to move to London in the next few months so they can play on PokerStars.com.

Nanev, a tour regular who first played an EPT at Sanremo in Season 4, is thrilled to have finally made an EPT final. His best result to date was actually that first event in Italy when he finished fourth in a side event for €61,140. He has had four EPT Main Event cashes including EPT Deauville, 18th for €23,000, and EPT Barcelona, 21st for €20,000. He currently ranks #4 on the Bulgaria all-time money list with fellow finalist Simeon Naydenov at #3. He said: “It was one of my goals to make a final table this year so I feel great. I am really happy that both Simeon and I have made the final. We’ve been supporting each other throughout the tournament. We are good friends and always stick together at events. But no mistake – I’m going after him at the final”. Nanev, who comes from Varna in Bulgaria but moved to Vilamoura in Portugal two years ago, currently has live tournament winnings totaling nearly €500k and is already guaranteed a best-ever live cash.

Simeon Naydenov first hit the spotlight when he bubbled the final table at EPT Campione in Season 8 for €41,000. However, the major turning point in his poker career came last summer when he became the second ever Bulgarian to win a WSOP bracelet, taking down the $1,500 shootout for $326,440. Now aged 26, Naydenov graduated in Business and Economics before taking up poker with friends. Competing in casinos gave him the impetus to start playing professionally and his first major cash came in Varna in 2009, when he finished fourth in a €1k event for €18,600. Online achievements include second place in the PokerStars PLO WCOOP event in September 2010 for a $36,000 prize. As well as poker, Naydenov also runs a social media marketing company.

His live tournament winnings amount to more than $860,000. He has also represented Bulgaria in two World Cups of the strategy game “Age of Empires”.

Only two weeks ago, he took down the PokerStars Sunday 500 for $83,790. He qualified for EPT Vienna online in a €82+R satellite.

Playing in his home city of Vienna, Ghamrawi spent Day 5 wearing a baseball cap signed by Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu on the TV table. He got a bunch of chips on Day 4 by doubling up through British pro Stephen Chidwick and then busting former chip leader Sebastian Trisch with QQ. Ghamrawi’s best live result to date was defeating a 1,465 strong field in one of the Rio’s $235 Daily Deepstack tourneys in Vegas for $54,344. He also made the final of the WPT Vienna Main Event in 2012, finishing ninth for €19,660. However, making today’s final, where he’s guaranteed at least €77,000, is by far his biggest live result. He won his seat to EPT Vienna in a €320 NLHE Deep Hyper-Turbo qualifier in February and has live tournament winnings to date of more than $124,000.

Final Table Coverage Will Start at 1PM Local Time

At 12 pm local time the Final Table of the PokerStars.net European Poker Tour Vienna Main Event will commence. Eight players remain, all eying that first place prize of €816,000.

As the live stream will feature hole cards, there's a one hour delay. So you'll have to wait till 1pm local time for the live stream and blog coverage to start.

We're in for a long final table presumably as the average stack is worth 85 big blinds. Just like the PCA this year, Day 5 lasted only a couple of hours. Down from 17 till 8 took just 3 hours of play.

Gavin O'Rourke was the final table bubble as his queen-jack couldn't improve against Frei Dilling's pocket tens. Most of his chips he lost against Anthony Ghamrawi though. In a 5.5 million pot his red queens squared off against red kings and Ghamrawi cowboys held up to catapult him into the chip lead position.

This is the way the eight players will be seated
