Young Leads Final Six, Rast and Danzer Still Alive!

Rory Young

Welcome back to Crown Melbourne and the 2014 World Series of Poker for the Event 6: AU$1,650 8-Game Dealer's Choice final table.

The 89 player field has been reduced to a final six with Rory Young sitting on top with 102,300 in chips. Snapping at his heels however is two-time WSOP bracelet winner Brian Rast who bagged an impressive 96,400. Three Australian poker regulars in David Zhao, Sam Khouiss and Jason Gray all look to continue Australia's dominance at this year's WSOP Asia-Pacific, however it is the the fate of the sixth final table combatant that most people will be interested in.

Earlier in the series, Germany's George Danzer took the lead in the WSOP Player of the Year race before Brandon Shack-Harris wrestled back with his final table in the Terminator Event. For Danzer, a fourth place or better will see him capture the lead back ... but most likely not for too long.
