Brian Altman brings the chip lead to the final table

The last day of the 2020 Seminole Lucky Hearts Poker Open is here and that means it is time to crown our WPT LHPO Champion. From 843 entries down to six, they return today to play it out in front of the WPT live-stream cameras.

Brian Altman leads the return and attempting to make history. He was the WPT LHPO champion in 2015 and, if he wins today, would be the first player ever to win the same WPT tournament twice.

But second place John Dollinger and the rest of the players will have something to say about that. The average stack is 5,620,000 (75 bb) so this will be a long road to the title.

Cards go back in the air at 2 pm and the WPT live stream will be on a 30-minute delay with hole cards.
