Giannetti, Salsberg Survive to Make WPT Lucky Hearts Final Six
The final six at the WPT Lucky Hearts Open was set after a long 15 hours of play with Matt Giannetti and Matt Salsberg staving off elimination to find their seats.
Giannetti even managed to find his way to the chip lead after being down to the short stack and on the brink of elimination a few times over the course of the day.
Salsberg also needed a series of double ups over the day to hang on for fifth place and make back-to-back WPT final tables.
Salsberg finished sixth at the Borgata Poker Open last week and is assured of at least matching that performance tomorrow.
Fish, Fortini in the Mix
Former November Niner Giannetti will start the final table wth just over 3 millions chips - about 500k ahead of veteran pro Daryll Fish in second.
Salsberg will have 980,000 - just above short stack Lily Kiletto's 860,000.
Hayden Fortini (1.6 million) and Danny Shiff (1.9 million) round out the final six.
A $323,804 payday is at stake for the winner with sixth place assured of $50,968.
