Welcome to the Final Day! After five days of bludgeon and carnage at the felt, we are down to the final 27 players of the RVS CUP 5 Million Guaranteed Philippine Poker Championship 2017. Join us at the Metro Card Club today as we find out who will emerge as the newest champion.
The past days have seen the poker room filled to capacity with a total of 1,176 partaking in the Metro’s richest event of the year. At yesterday’s race, the money began to flow starting at 125th place. Today, everyone is guaranteed PHP17,500 however what they will all be eyeing is the massive first prize of PHP1,500,000.
Among the finalists, there are two players fitted with huge stacks, Seong Uk Hong and Jan Morris Bolotaolo. Both players have the chip advantage with a stack of over 2M each. Returning as well is one of the most decorated players in the country, poker pro Mike Takayama. Although his 782K stack may seem low compared to the two leaders, he will certainly be the biggest threat to all the players with his long list of victories and cashes throughout his career.
In case you are unable to catch the live action, there will be live updates running all day so you can all keep up with the game. Cards will be in the air at 3pm. Good luck to all!
