After four days of play the World Poker Tour‘s Bay 101 Shooting Star event is down to a final table of six players. With 50 star players playing in the event with a $5,000 bounty on their head they weren’t expected to make it this far, but Kathy Liebert defied the odds and will return on Friday to fight for the $1, 000,000 first place prize.
Liebert, who is making her sixth WPT final table showing, sits fourth in chips with 1,180,000 behind chip leader Tony Behari who has 2,046,000. Steve Brecher is breathing down Behari’s neck with 2,016,000 and Chris Moore sits in third with 1,476,000. The final two players at the final table are Thao Le (711,000) and Chau Vu (352,000).
The fourth day of play started with six six-handed tables, another unique feature of the Bay 101 event. Michael Kamran started as the chip leader but ended up being the TV bubble boy after Brecher eliminated Kamran on the first hand of seven-handed play.
Paul Wasicka, Joe Sebok, Vivek Rajkumar, Amnon Filippi and Hoyt Corkins all saw their title run come to an end on Thursday. For Sebok it marks the second year in a row he’s made it to the second to last day of the event, only last year he finished 7th.
The final table gets underway at 4 pm PT Friday.
