Christian Rudolph

The partypoker World Cup of Cards Main Event has reached its nine-handed final table. Some 1,008 partypoker players bought into the tournament for $1,100 but only nine of them remain in the hunt for what is a $166,993 top prize. There is a familiar name at the top of the chip counts, a certain Christian Rudolph.

Christian Rudolph Wins WPT Online Series Main Event ($487,443)

Rudolph’s peers regard him as one of the best No-Limit Hold’em poker tournament players of his generation; he has won it all. Rudolph can boast of being a World Series of Poker bracelet winner, and only last month he took down the WPT Online Series Main Event for $487,442. Now Rudolph looks set to get his hands on an additional six-figure prize in another partypoker event.

While Rudolph is the pre-final table favorite, all eyes are on the man in second-place. Russian grinder Mikhail Mikheev may not be a household name just yet, but he has already made a name for himself. Mikheev won his $1,100 seat via one of partypoker’s popular Mega Satellites. He turned that $109 into 2,269,677 chips on Day 1B and built from there. Mikheev is guaranteed at least $13,606 for his efforts, but has his eye on one of the two six-figure prizes waiting to be won.

The rest of the final table is littered with stellar names, each of whom has a legitimate chance of becoming the WCC Main Event champion. Joel Nystedt returns to the virtual felt in fourth place with Canada’s Peter Chien one place behind.

Slightly further down the chip counts, you find the Hungarian superstar that is Andras Nemeth with Dmitry Yurasov sitting down at the final table as the second-shortest stack. Despite his lowly position at the restart, Yurasov still has more than 20 big blinds in his stack.
