€25,750 High Roller

Welcome to the Final Day of the 2016 EPT Malta €25,750 High Roller!

Oleksii Khoroshenin looking for more EPT gold

At 1pm local time, the final day of the 2016 EPT Malta €25,750 High Roller will commence. Six are left standing from a field of 65 entrants, and they will play down until a winner is crowned. All players are guaranteed at least €98,740, but the champion will walk away with a staggering payday of €465,800

[Removed:17], hailing all the way from New Zealand, is leading the pack with 887,000 in chips. The Kiwi finished the penultimate day in style; eliminating Davidi Kitai on the last hand with aces versus ace-queen to claim the pole position. EPT 10 Vienna winner Oleksii Khoroshenin isn't far away in second place. The Ukranian is commanding a solid stack of 858,000 and will be one to watch at this final table. The short stack is none other than Ole Schemion, but with 27 big blinds left there's room for the German juggernaut to make some magic happen.

Here's how the players rack up at the start of the day:
