Lakhov, Dunst, Mortensen in Final 6 at WPT World Championship

Carlos Mortensen
Never count out Carlos Mortensen

Former WPT Cyprus champion Alexander Lakhov will lead an elite group of six into the final table of the WPT World Championship tomorrow.

He's not the only former WPT champ that will be playing, though.

Raw Deal host and WPT ST. Maarten champ Tony Dunst will be there, making it back-to-back seasons he's made the final table of the WPT Championship.

Also in the mix? WPT Champion and WSOP bracelet holder Carlos Mortensen, who's looking to become the first-ever two-time WPT World Champion.

He also has the chance to become the first-ever 4-time WPT winner.

There's also the small matter of $973,683 on the line for first place to make things even more interesting.

Parker Out 7th, Stammen 9th

Given the exceptional talent that made the final six it could have been even crazier as multiple WSOP bracelet winner Brock Parker just bubbled the final table.

Tony Dunst
Back-to-back WPT Championship FTs for Dunst.

Elite young pro and high roller Jake Schindler finished 8th while last year's WPT World Champion, Keven Stammen, narrowly missed a return to the final six himself.

Near the top of the chip counts for the past two days Stammen's repeat attempt fell just short in 9th.

Asher Conniff, Ray Qartomy and Brian Yoon round out the final six players.

The official final six and chip counts:

  • 1. Alexander Lakhov 4,110,000
  • 2. Asher Conniff 2,360,000
  • 3. Brian Yoon 1,970,000
  • 4. Ray Qartomy 1,390,000
  • 5. Tony Dunst 1,255,000
  • 6. Carlos Mortensen 880,000

A live stream will also be available on Twitch.tv tomorrow.
