Shaun Deeb Headlines WSOP Europe Main Event Final Table

Shaun Deep WSOP Europe

A star-studded final table awaits at the WSOP Europe Main Event final table at King's Resort, Rozvadov. Just eight players remain from a field of 763 players and they included two former bracelet winners.

Leading the way is Sweden's Omar Eljach who narrowly missed out on a bracelet earlier this month, finishing second in the €5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha. He was also denied heads-up three years ago in another WSOP Europe bracelet event, and will be out to avenge those close calls.

Eljach leads a familiar face in the shape of five-time bracelet winner and former WSOP Player of the Year Shaun Deeb.

Fresh from his shot at Powerball success, Deeb has three podium finishes at WSOP events in the Czech Republic over the course of his career, and is in a dangerous position heading into the final table.

Another famous face is Barny Boatman who knows what it means to taste WSOP Europe glory, having won the second of his two bracelets back in 2015.

Two Frenchmen have made the WSOP Europe final table, with Jonathan Pastore having won his bracelet only five months ago. Alexandre Reard has also tasted WSOP glory before, back in 2021, and still sits with over 60 big blinds despite being the second-shortest stack at the final table.

Paul Covaciu is a King's Resort regular having cashed in festivals there dating back to 2018, with former UKIPT champion Vladas Tamasauskas sitting sixth at the final table. This result already sees the Lithuanian move above $1,000,000 in career earnings, sitting comfortably inside the Lithuanian All Time Money List top 10.

Bringin up the rear — although by no means the short stack — is Armin Rezaei. Rezaei narrowly missed out on an EPT title in Prague earlier this year and has made a second deep run in the WSOP Europe Main Event, having previously finished 23rd in 2018.

Remaining Payouts

Chip leader Omar Eljach (pictured) will certainly be looking up at the payouts when play resumes later today, with only the winner walking away with a seven-figure score. Blinds will resume at 100,000/200,000 with a 200,000 big blind ante and levels will be 90 minutes long.
