There will be seven players returning to the felt for the final day of Event #4: €250,000 Super High Roller and what a list of accomplishments they each have. Unfortunately for two of them, only five players will make the money and with limited big blinds in play, it will be a dash to the finish.
Leading the way with a comfortable chip lead is Dominik Nitsche with 42,500,000 chips. The German high-roller has built up quite the live poker resume, a lot of which has come right here at King's Resort in Rozvadov. Nitsche will be looking to add a second World Series of Poker gold bracelet in the last three years in Europe along with the first-place prize of €2,844,215.
The rest of the field will be jockeying for position and scrambling just to make it into the money. Chin Wei Lim currently sits in second place with 23,900,000 which is just less than 24 big blinds. Cary Katz is most notably considered a short-stack ninja so he could be right in his comfort zone with 20,000,000 chips and 20 big blinds. James Chen will have to adjust his style of play after holding the chip lead for the better part of the tournament up until the last couple of levels where he fell to the short stack with 13,100,000 chips.

Each player will be refreshed with a new set of six time extensions at the start of the day. The final table will be live-streamed on PokerGo with a 60-minute delay. Because of that, the PokerNews live updates will be also delayed to remain in sync with the live stream.
