PokerStars qualifier Mateusz Warowiec leads JP Kelly as final table is set
After four long days of poker action we have managed to whittle the record breaking 615-strong field down to our final table of eight players. We came back for the start of play at midday today with 52 players remaining and it took seven and a half levels to reach our goal.
PokerStars qualifier Mateusz Warowiec's bags up 2,032,000 chips for a 250,000 lead over his nearest rival. His day started with a cab ride to the casino courtesy of Team PokerStars blog. We ran into him outside the hotel and took pity. If any on the other finalists need to share a lucky cab with us tomorrow, we are available, but for a small fee, of course! During the ride he bemoaned his end of Day 2 luck that left him with 81,000 chips coming into today. I told him to spin it up and boy did he. He went on a tear and in one particular level went from 100,000 chips up to nearly 1,100,000 chips after a few double-ups and a hand where he made quads.
