Andrew Robl and Dan Perper have edged out to a slight chip lead as the WPT $100k High Roller reached the TV table of six yesterday.

Perper, a young pro from Highland Park, Illinois, has pared his way through the pro-stacked field to bag up 3,415,000 chips for the slight lead over Robl.

Robl, a well known high-stakes pro, is just off the pace with 3,355,000.

Both are now eyeing the $1.3 million first-place prize as are the elite four joining them at the final table..

Sitting just behind in third and fourth are Tom “kingsofcards” Marchese at 2,235,000 and Justin Bonomo, still fresh from his win at the EPT Grand Final High Roller, at 2,105,000.

Long time pro John Juanda, making a somewhat rare tournament appearance these days, is in fifth with 1,875,000. Bill Klein is the short stack with 620,000.

Smith, Seidel Just Miss

The unfortunate final-table bubble boy was Dan "KingDan" Smith, who was knocked out by Bonomo to bring Day 2 to a close.

Also eliminated just before the final six yesterday were Erik Seidel, Sam Trickett, Brian Hastings and Phil Galfond.

While in most cases making it to the TV table means you have a lock on a big payday, one player is still at risk of going home empty handed as the money bubble doesn’t hit until five.

A min-cash is also worth $263,160, making it a $360k swing for the unfortunate bubbler.

The final table gets underway at 4 pm today from the Bellagio in Las Vegas. Live streaming coverage with hole cards and commentary from Tony Dunst, Dan O'Brien, and Olivier Busquet starts at 4:30 on
