The 2019 Poker Players Championship began with 74 runners, but just six players will return to action for the fifth and final day of play.

Cards will be in the air at Noon local time and the remaining players will battle it out for a $1,099,311 top prize, a gold bracelet, and the coveted Chip Reese Memorial Trophy.

Josh Arieh leads the way with 6,220,000. He led the tournament after Day 1, stayed in top five after Day 2, and trailed only Phil Ivey after Day 3.

The elimination of David Oppenheim last night brought Day 4 to its conclusion and the final six players will continue today in a set of razz hands. There are 57 minutes left to play in level 22 with the 100,000/200,000 limits.

None of the final six players have previously made it this far in this particular tournament, though Deeb has notched two PPC cashes in his career finishing in seventh place in 2017 being the better of the pair. Meanwhile, Arieh has made money once, finishing 13th back in 2011. For the other four players, it will be their debut PPC cash.
