Final table set for Russian Poker Series Riga
by James White
Artur Egorov may not be a name that rolls off the tongue, but the Russian will let his stack do the talking today when he fights for the PokerStars RPS Riga title. Egorov's 1,392,000 chips will take some catching for the other eight final tablists.
They're all already guaranteed €6,550, but that's peanuts up against the hefty €95,468.50 waiting for the winner in Latvia.
The final table was set after 36 players started out yesterday and broke through the money bubble. Players who cashed include Team PokerStars Pro Alex Kravchenko (€4,250) and EPT Deauville champion Jake Cody (€3,600).
