Poker pro Anthony Ghamrawi will get a chance to play the part of hometown hero at the final table of EPT Vienna.

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.

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
  • Pablo Gordillo - 4,075,000
  • Timo Pfutzenreuter - 3,740,000
  • Simeon Naydenov - 3,550,000
  • Rumen Nanev - 2,765,000
  • Oleksii Khoroshenin - 2,150,000
  • Marko Neumann - 1,685,000
