It has been an incredible five days at the UK's home of poker, Dusk Till Dawn Nottingham, where hundreds of players have given it their all in this partypokerLIVE Millions Main Event. Today is the day they've all been hoping to reach, as the final eight players will battle it out for the trophy, the glory and the £1 million winners check.

Leading the field coming into the final is Poland's Mateusz Rypulak with 257,300,000, but not far behind is UK's Jacob Mulhern 221,000,000. In third is one of the two remaining women left in the field, Maria Lampropoulou, who managed to bag up 194,700,000 thanks to a late night double up against partypoker online qualifier Katie Swift.

Also in the field is British poker pro Stephen Chidwick. He started Day 4 with a mere 2.5 big blinds, but in an incredible turn of events, the Brit more than tripled his stack in the very first hand of the day and never looked back. Chidwick is looking to do the same today as he's beginning the final table as the short stack with 45,500,500 — 11 big blinds.

Each of the eight finalists has locked up £72,935 for their efforts, but with a cool one million pound sterling for the winner, there's still all the reasons for the players to make today count. Even a single pay jump will at this stage of the tournament mean a difference of ten or even hundreds of thousands of pounds, thus guaranteeing an exciting and hard fought final table.

As if one million pound sterling wouldn't be motivation enough, there is even more at stake for two of the remaining players. Thanks to their advancements in Punta Cana late last year, Mateusz Rypulak and Jacob Mulhern are participating in a Golden Chip Last Longer, and the last one standing of the two will take home an additional £100,000.

The action gets back underway at 1 p.m. local time, where the tournament clock will be restarted with seven minutes remaining in level 53 (2,000,000/4,000,000 and a running ante of 400,000). Updates will follow the live stream and thus start 30 minutes later because of the security delay of the stream. Settle in — it's going to be a good one folks!
