Tony G, Colclough make NPL final table

Tony Guoga
Tony G takes on the NPL Event 1 final table today.

Tony G goes into the final table today with 24,725 in chips. He will be joined by Sekh "Steven" Razab, Jason Ho, Dave Colclough and Eion Kennedy.

Razab is the closest to the Tony G, only a couple thousand behind him with 22,000 chips.

One of the casualties who fell to help build the G-man's stack was Shannon Elizabeth. She'd recently been in Australia to play some tournaments and made her way back to the Northern Hemisphere for the NPL tournament.

She found herself battling it out on camera with Tony G fairly early in the competition. Unfortunately her pocket kings would run into trouble when Tony G took her on with jack-ten suited.

Elizabeth went all in on the flop, and Tony G called her with an open-ended straight-flush draw. Tony improved and sent Elizabeth to head to the rail once again.

Known as "The Mouth from Down Under," Tony G will be sure to make for an entertaining final table. His bravado was probably bolstered by his recent three cashes at the World Series of Poker.

However, his reputation and recent success won't guarantee him a win.

He'll have his work cut out for him with Dave Colclough also at the table. The Welshman is a consistent casher in events and has seen success in the Grosvenor U.K. Poker Tour this year as well as two cashes at the WSOP.

The final table starts today at 6 p.m. local time with Roy Houghton providing live commentary.

With Event 1 wrapping up, Event 2 begins today as well. It has a £540 buy-in like the first event and is sure to draw another crowd of Europe's greatest poker players.

There will also be £1,325 buy-in events starting Tuesday and Wednesday. The £2,600 main event will begin Friday.

The final tables for all the events will be filmed for television broadcast.
