Hit and Run: WSOPE Main Event Final Table; $1M Spin&Go Jackpot; Gordo Wins WSOP POY


The World Series of Poker Europe Main Event is down to the final six. Mike Gorodinsky has locked up the 2015 WSOP Player of the Year trophy. Brazilian woman wins a $1 million Spin & Go at PokerStars.

Final Table set for the  WSOP Europe Main Event

Event #9: Day 4 of the WSOP Europe Main Event saw the remaining 33 players pared down to just six (there are seven left at the time of writing), and it’s going to be a hell of a six! Still in the hunt are, Poker Hall of Famer Erik Seidel, WPT winner and WSOP bracelet holder Kevin MacPhee, Andrew “LuckyChewy” Lichtenberger, and JC Alvarado, who will soon be fighting Olivier Busquet in an MMA match for six-figures.

Event #10: 10 players remain in contention for the $25k High Roller tournament, and at the time of writing it’s Mustapha Kanit leading the way. The trail pack is formidable, as it includes Jason Mercier, Jonathan Duhamel, Tim Adams, Fedor Holz, John Juanda, Sam Chartier, Nicola Grieco, Chris Vogelsang, and David Kitai.

Only seven players will cash, which means the 8th place finisher will suffer through a €106k money bubble.
