German player is a leader among the top five WSOP 2019 finalists
WSOP Main Event 2019 is coming to its end and we will soon find out the name of the champion. Only five finalists remained out of 8,569 and they all dream of getting a gold bracelet tomorrow.
Milos Skrbic from Serbia was the first player who left the final table. After the sixth hand Milos went all-in and lost all his chips to Garry Gates. He didn't get upset about his leaving the tournament, because he earned $1,000,000 for the ninth place.
Then, Timothy Su who was a chip leader of the fifth day left the game. The American poker player didn’t have enough experience and he finished the tournament in the 8th place. Nick Marchington and Kai Sheng supported their colleague and also stopped their participation in the event.
After that, a break in the game was announced until tomorrow and the finalists left the hall. The participant of the final table Garry Gates shared his impressions:
"It was crazy, just crazy. I felt comfortable when we were lined up. When Jack (Effel) was doing the announcements, I did feel some nerves early on. Handling my chips, initially, I could feel my hands [shaking]. After about half an hour, I settled in and I feel comfortable out there”.
German poker player Hossein Ensan is a chip leader of the final top five and he has an excellent chance of winning the tournament. Italian player Dario Sammartino, American players Kevin Maahs and Garry Gates, and Canadian Alex Livingston will also fight for the wining.
