World Poker Tour Southern Poker Championship Reaches Final Table

January 27th, 2011 – by Glen Farmer

The field that came out to the World Poker Tour’s Southern Poker Championship has thinned out to only six players – the final table. The end of day 4 has drawn to a close, and the televised final table is about to kick off.

Though 214 people came out to the Southern Poker Championship, only 27 people were in the pay structure. A minimum prize of $18,868 has been awarded, nearly doubling the $9,700+$300 investment it took to buy into this event. The top prize of $601,469 is on the line, as is a World Poker Tour Title championship.

Going into the final table, Alexander Kuzmin has a dominant lead. Kuzmin holds 1,969,000 in chips, or 197 big blinds. Allen Carter is right behind him. Carter owns 1,928,000 chips, or 193 big blinds. The other players only have under 100 big blinds, so their stacks may be at risk very early on in the event.

The previous day’s chip leader, Ryan Hughes, fell to third place over the day. His stack of 840,000 (84 big blinds) has him in the middle of the remaining chip stacks.

Leif Force, Shannon Shorr, and Pat Mahoney are also in the running with 67 big blinds or less.

The final table will determine a winner in this leg of the World Poker Tour, though the chips could go either way.
