Watson, Gregg, Lewis, Troyanovskiy Pack Talented PCA Final 6

SirWatts, in his mustache era.

After 5 days of play, dozens of fantastic hands, 2 concurrent live streams and one sensational Scotsman have all made their marks, the PCA Main Event is down to six players.

And what a six.

Heading into today's final table with $2.2m still to be distributed four of the game's most renowned pros still have a chance at taking a big chunk of it headed by Canadian Mike "SirWatts" Watson.

The versatile live/online pro has a poker résumé to be more than envious of with over $8m in career live earnings and a WPT title to boot.

With 6.5m in chips he's got a slight advantage over his closest tablemates - the only problem being they're equally as fearsome.

Right behind Watson in the counts are American Tony Gregg (5.7m), Russian Vladimir Troyanovskiy (5m) and Brit Toby Lewis (4.6m) which should make today's final table one of the best in PCA history.

Gregg at Home at PCA

Making things even tougher for Watson to bring it home will be the presence of Gregg, who's been in this exact same spot twice before.

Gregg finished second back in 2009 in the richest PCA Main Event ever to earn $1.7m - twice the first-place payday today. He then repeated his final-table heroics in 2012 to finish sixth for $364k.

Troyanovskiy is one of the most experienced high rollers in the world so won't be intimidated by the bright lights of the finals, and neither will Lewis, one of the best the UK has to offer.

As if that wasn't tough enough even the amateur at the table, American Randy Kritzer, is a neurosurgeon. Young UK grinder Phillip McAllister, who played one of those spectacular hand earlier in the tournament, rounds out the final six.

Seat assignments and chip counts:

Seat 1: Mike Watson (Canada) 6,585,000
Seat 2: Vladimir Troyanovskiy (Russia) 5,025,000
Seat 3: Randy Kritzer (USA) 2,565,000
Seat 4: Tony Gregg (USA) 5,690,000
Seat 5: Phillip McAllister (UK) 3,040,000
Seat 6: Toby Lewis (UK) 4,665,000
