We have arrived to the 2015 World Poker Tour Choctaw final table, where the final six players will go heads up to win the much desired WPT title, and the $682,975 in cash for the first place winner. Darren Elias, a well-known name at the tournament, is favored to win as he aims to get his third WPT title win.

The final six players, chip counts, and seating arrangements are:

Seat Player Chip Count
1 Alex Lynskey 5,925,000
2 Andy Hwang 10,935,000
3 Darren Elias 8,130,000
4 Jason Brin 2,390,000
5 Mina Greco 2,220,000
6 Jack Schindler 5,675,000

There is plenty of prize money to go around, as the buy-in was $3,700, and there were 1,175 entrants in total; making it a $2 million prize pool. The breakdown of what each place will win is:

  • First place: $682,975
  • Second place: $468,105
  • Third place: $303,593
  • Fourth place: $224,913
  • Fifth place: $167,691
  • Sixth place: $135,504

So at the minimum, any player at the final table will make at least 37 times more than what they bought in for, which is not such a bad deal. On top of that, any player name sitting at the final table will already have some fame thrown their way, as the whole world is watching.
