Final Table Seat Draw
|Seat||Player||Country||Chip Count||Big Blinds|

The remaining players have all guaranteed themselves at least €6,221 but will have their sights set on the first-place prize of €113,000 and the WSOP gold bracelet. With a few short stacks still in the mix, the action could be fast and furious to begin the day but the pay jumps will eventually become a factor.
The action is slated to get underway at 12 p.m. local time with 25:26 remaining in level 27 with the blinds at 25,000/50,000 and a big blind ante of 50,000. The levels will continue to be 40 minutes in length with a 15-minute break after every three levels.
