Even in your wildest dreams, when you're playing around in a $10 Spin & Go you don't expect it to turn into a shot at over $1m.

Not only is that now the reality for Kazakhstan's Asan Umarov, he's also trying to collect one of the most prestigious titles in poker.

Umarov turned a $10 Spin & Go into a 2016 EPT Grand Final package and after Day 5 today has now taken it all the way to the final table of the main event.

He'll have a pretty big chip disadvantage to overcome, but he's in the running. And he's already guaranteed himself at least €170,950.

Allain, Guerrero Lead for France

With this year's Grand Final also a part of the France Poker Series it's fitting the two chip leaders heading into the final six represent the home country.

Veteran pro Adrien Allain turned some steady play and a big stack into 11,815,000 when play starts tomorrow. He's slightly ahead of fellow Frenchman Jimmy Guerrero, who'll un-bag 11,480,000.

Those two will have a substantial advantage on the rest of the field as no one else managed to bag up more than 2.6m.

Three-time EPT main event final-tablist Jan Bendik will return with that stack, followed by Oren Rosen of Israel at 2,315,000.

Another Frenchman in Pierre Calamusa and Umarov bring up the rear with 2,235,000 apiece. Action picks up tomorrow at 2 pm local time with cards-up coverage available on the PokerStars live stream
