The final day of the 2015 WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown Championship is about to get underway with just six players left with a chance to take home the top $1,000,000 prize.

The Championship started on April 16 and drew 1,476 entrants competing for the $5,000,000 prize pool. That number was whittled down until we have our final table set to go. Griffin Paul will start the final day with the chip lead with Andre Crooks his nearest competitor. Joe Ebanks, Brian Green, Ryan Rivers, and Shawn Nguyen round out the rest of the final table.

The average stack is 74 big blinds and it will be a long grind for the table with the added pressure of a live audience and the WPT cameras. Cards are scheduled to be in the air at 4pm and we’ll be here all day with live updates.
