WPT Marrakech Down to Nine

WPT Chips

The African leg of the World Poker Tour has reached a final table.

The WPT Marrakech main event presented by Chilipoker drew 222 to the Casino De Marrakech at the Es Saadi Gardens & Resort in Morocco this week.

Tuesday, the battle for the €254,745 first place prize will begin with nine relatively unknown players.

Sebastian Homann has the chip lead, but fellow German Dominik Nitsche is hot on his heels in what appears to be his breakthrough event after deep runs at EPT Barcelona (23rd) and WPT Amneville (26th) earlier this month.

Winamax sponsored pro Guillaume de la Gorce is perhaps the most recognizable player in the rest of the group.

Last year, Frenchman Christophe Savary won the title and €377,262 beating a much larger 416-player field in the WPT's first trip to Africa.

Here's how they'll stack up coming into Tuesday's final:

1 Sebastian Homann 1,539,000

2 Dominik Nitsche 1,479,000

3 Guilliame Cescut 956,000

4 Johan Williamson 693,000

5 Sebastian Compte 529,000

6 Guillaume de la Gorce 516,000

7 Julien Labuissiere 430,000

8 Felix Oberauer 270,000

9 Patrick Muleta 244,000
