Ghamrawi grabbed the overall chip lead with 5.5 million in the waning stages of EPT Vienna Day 5 earlier today.
The Vienna-native will have to get by WSOP bracelet winner Simeon Naydenov if he hopes to wrap up his first EPT title.
The final table is certainly a diverse one with two Germans, two Bulgarians, a Spaniard, Dane, Ukrainian and of course an Austrian.
Johnny Lodden Denied Third EPT Final Table
Heading into Day 5 famed poker pro Johnny Lodden was most likely the most well-known player in the field but fell just short of the final table coming in 15th place.
The Norwegian got himself in a classic race situation with A-K to Gavin O’Rourke’s 8-8 but couldn’t out-flop the Irish pro who spiked a set.
Lodden picked up €40,550 for finishing in 15th place.
Consistent Hungarian grinder Andras Kovacs also got close to the final table but ultimately whiffed coming in 11th place for €50,250.
The final table is set to begin at 12 p.m. local time tomorrow with someone walking away with an €816,000 first-place prize.
Here’s a look at the complete final-table chip counts heading into play:
- Anthony Ghamrawi - 5,150,000
- Frei Dilling - 4,230,000
