Beckley Leads Stacked $25K High Roller Final Table

After two long days of poker just nine players remain in the $25,000 High Roller, one of the most prestigious events of the year. WSOP Main Event runner-up Josh Beckley leads the way with 2,1460,000 followed by one of Italy's finest, Dario Sammartino with 1,892,000.

Up until finishing second in the WSOP Main Event for $4.4 million, Beckley had never had a six-figure score, but today he can lock up his second seven-figure result, as the first prize is $1,142,100. Sammartino had his biggest result at last year's EPT Grand Final when he finished fourth in the €100,000 Super High Roller and sixth in the €25,000 High Roller for a combined €966,900.

Sean Winter, who comes into the day third in chips, won the 2015 Bellagio Cup for $562,772 and added three more six-figure scores last year, putting him at $2.4 million career earnings.

Nick Maimone, who finished 15th in the 2009 WSOP Main Event, looks to close one out after making two deep runs in side events this week. Russian pro Andrey Zaichenko is also among the contender, and he's shown he knows what it takes to win, capturing the EPT Prague High Roller title in 2014 for $606,924.

Two-time WSOP bracelet winner Brian Yoon has managed to make the final table as well, as did Chance Kornuth who finished third in the Main Event last year, Ben Heath and Anton Astapau, who's the short stack with nine players remaining.

The final table action will start at 12:00 p.m. and PokerNews.com will bring you all the live updates, chip counts and photos of this million dollar final table.

Short Stacks Gets Shorter

Nível 22 : 12,000/24,000, 3,000 ante

There hasn't been any significant action here in the opening minutes of Day 3. In the most recent hand, Dario Sammartino raised to 55,000 under the gun and action folded around to Anton Astapau, who defended the big blind.

When the flop came down {3-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}, Astapau checked and then folded when Sammartino continued for 42,000.

One For Maimone

Nível 22 : 12,000/24,000, 3,000 ante

The pots in the first level have been very small, but just now we caught Nick Maimone taking down a pot on the turn.

Maimone raised to 60,000 under the gun and Dario Sammartino called, putting {10-Spades}{3-Hearts}{8-Clubs} on the flop in this heads up pot.

Maimone continued for 70,000 on the flop and Sammartino called.

The turn brought the {5-Spades} and Sammartino tanked for quite some time before folding to a bet of 108,000.

"Everyone Loves a Chopped Pot"

Nível 22 : 12,000/24,000, 3,000 ante

Dario Sammartino put in a raise from the button and received calls from Sean Winter and Brian Yoon in the small and big blinds respectively. Two checks on the {j-Clubs}{a-Clubs}{a-Spades} flop saw Sammartino continue for 40,000, only Winter called, and then both players checked the {10-Hearts} turn.

When the {A-Diamonds} river put three aces on board, both players checked and Winter slammed down the {j-Hearts}{q-Hearts} for a full house. Sammartino then showed the {j-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} for the same hand.

As they say on the EPT, "Everyone loves a chopped pot."

Aces For Zaichenko

Nível 22 : 12,000/24,000, 3,000 ante

Chance Kornuth just raised in early position to 60,000 and Sean Winter called from the cutoff.

"Are you nervous?" Winter asked Kornuth, who remained silent as he looked at Brian Yoon, who was next to act.

Yoon folded from the button, and Andrey Zaichenko thought for a bit before making it 225,000 from the small blind.

Nick Maimone folded right away from the big blind, and both Kornuth and Winter folded as well.

Zaichenko slammed {A-Spades}{A-Clubs} onto the table as the pot was pushed to him, as he would've liked to see some more action on his top hand.

Zaichenko Waking Up with the Goods

Nível 22 : 12,000/24,000, 3,000 ante

Dario Sammartino opened for 55,000 from early position and Andrey Zaichenko three-bet to 150,000 from the cutoff. Action folded back to Sammartino, and he called to see a {3-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} flop. Both players checked, the dealer burned and turned the {10-Diamonds}, and Sammartino bet 118,000.

Zaichenko called, the {9-Diamonds} completed the board on the river, and Sammartino returned to checking. Zaichenko bet 304,000 and Sammartino released what he claimed was a set. Zaichenko then showed the {a-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}.

Not long after, Zaichenko three-bet over a raise and won another pot, this time showing pocket kings.
