Phillip Mighall

23-year old Phillip Mighall is one of the most exciting young players on this final table,

The South Coast native’s loose aggressive style has been the thorn in many people’s side in this tournament and expect no less at the final table. He has been playing poker for five years - three professionally - and his largest score to date was a six figure score whilst playing online.

His live tournament record is more modest with $81,444 in live tournament earnings, and he will top that if he can managed a fourth place finish in this one. This is the only WPT Main Event that Mighall has entered. He start’s the table as the short stack.

The 30-year old Frenchman, Antoine Saout, is the most experienced player at this final table. Like many French professional’s, Saout lives in London, and has been playing poker for six years.

The man known as Tonio292 was the Day 3 chip leader after eliminating Fraser MacIntyre in a huge pot towards the end of the day, and he will start the final table fourth in chips.

Saout is recognised throughout the world of poker after finishing third in the 2009 WSOP Main Event in Las Vegas, where he pocketed $3.4m, and then finishing seventh in the WSOPE Main Event for $188,318 the same year.

He has earned over $4.2m in live tournament earnings two WPT National Series final table appearance, finishing third in Paris in 2012, and fourth in Paris in 2013. This is his second WPT Main Event final table appearance after finishing 40th at WPT Marrakech in 2009.

What a scintillating Day 4 performance from the 21-year old from Lithuania.

Matas Cimbolas started the day in eight position, and climbed to fourth when the unofficial final table was formed, but put in a barnstorming last few levels to finish as the runaway chip leader, with over a million chips more than Ben Warrington in second place.

The youngster was responsible for eliminating the dangerous Luca Moschitta in seventh place. This is first-ever WPT Main Event appearance, although he did finish 11th in the WPT National Series held in London in 2013.

Cimbolas is already guaranteed to walk away with more cash than he has earned, playing live tournaments, in the past three years combined.
