It would be tough to find a more talented final table in recent memory than the six we have returning today for the 2017 WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown Championship. The six returning players have nearly $40,000,000 in combined tournament earnings, five World Series of Poker bracelets, and eight WPT final tables.
Dan Colman and Robert Mizrachi are the two biggest guns at the final table followed by Seminole Hard Rock Poker team member Darryll Fish. Simeon Naydenov has more than $2.4 million in earnings and that big amount is only good enough to be fourth of the six returning players.
With the average stack at 60 big blinds when they restart, it’s still anyone’s title to win and it should make for an entertaining final table.
