Who Will Take Home the $100,000 High Roller Bracelet?

A gold WSOP bracelet just like this one is up for grabs

If you take a look at the chip counts heading into the final day of Event #5: $100,000 High Roller, you can't help but notice that the top three players hold bracelets, while the other three are yet to win one of poker's most coveted wristpieces. However, it was American novelist Tom Robbins who once said, "Don't confuse symmetry with balance."

Balanced, this table is not. It is full of some of the top poker players in the world and as chip leader Nick Petrangelo said yesterday, they are each familiar with one another from long hours playing in some of the poker world's toughest fields. Any one of them could walk away with the top prize of $2,910,227 at the end of today's play, so stay tuned to PokerNews to find out who it will be!

Cards will be in the air at 2 p.m., and the action will be streamed on an hour delay on PokerGO.

Seat 1 - Andreas Eiler, Germany (8,490,000)

Andreas Eiler

Andreas Eiler is one of only two Germans left at the $100,000 High Roller final table (alongside Aymon Hata), the odds of which might have been pretty long at the start of the tournament considering his nation's poker pedigree. However, that's not to disparage Eiler's poker resume, not least considering his last recorded cash was a €700,000 ($857,980) score after takign down the €25,000 Super High Roller at partypoker Barcelona.

Eiler has come within a whisker of taking home a WSOP gold bracelet, finishing runner-up to Dominik Nitsche in last year's WSOPE €111,111 High Roller for One Drop for €2,155,418 ($2,511,762). This may be only Eiler's third WSOP cash (his first came in the 2013 WSOP) but after missing out by the narrowest of margins in Rozvadov, he'll be out for revenge should he get to heads-up in this one.

Seat 2 - Bryn Kenney, United States (10,200,000)

Bryn Kenney

Should Bryn Kenney take down the $100,000 High Roller, he'll move into sixth place on the All Time Money List, surpassing Phil Ivey and Fedor Holz. Whatever list it is, you know you're doing well when it's the likes of those guys you're overtaking!

With over $24m in lifetime cashes, Kenney could become the eighth player to reach $25m in life time earnings, and the omens look good. He has a wealth of experience in $/€100,000 buy-in tournaments, winning two of them for a combined score of over $3.5m. A win here would be his biggest score to date.

Seat 3 - Nick Petrangelo, United States (12,200,000)

Nick Petrangelo

End of day chip leader for the last two days, Nick Petrangelo won his bracelet back in 2015 in Event #4: $ 3,000 No Limit Hold'em Shootout for $201,812. Already guaranteed at least twice that figure, Petrangelo is in the driving seat heading into the final day and just five eliminations away from a second WSOP gold bracelet.

Yesterday Petrangelo said to PokerNews that there were "no real ICM pressure spots," but expect that to change today as the big money looms up top.

Seat 4 - Elio Fox, United States (8,620,000)

Elio Fox

What a week it's been for the former WSOPE winner Elio Fox! He took home €1,400,000 ($1,870,208) back in 2011 for that victory, and barely a week ago he added a second WSOP gold bracelet with victory in the second event of the summer, the $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Super Turbo Bounty for $393,693.

Speaking after his victory, Fox said that he enjoyed the "mixture of pros and recreational players," but the final table line up is anything but, with Fox needing to overcome some top poker names in order to make it two from two this summer. The Day 1 chip leader is third in chips and poised to capitalise on any mistake from either Petrangelo or Kenney.

Seat 5 - Stephen Chidwick, United Kingdom (5,740,000)

Steven Chidwick

Is this the one? Could Stephen Chidwick finally grab himself a bracelet? If so, the GPI #1 will have to come from sixth in chips , but with just under 30 big blinds. With multiple High Roller wins to his name, along with the US Poker Open title from February, Chidwick has amassed a ton of experience with the other players at the final table and shouldn't be ruled out of contention just yet.

Should Chidwick need any extra motivation to rid himself of the moniker of being one of the world's best without a bracelet, a win would put him just over $1m behind Sam Trickett in the English all-time money list.

Seat 6 - Aymon Hata, Germany (7,280,000)

Aymon Hata

The unknown quantity at the $100,000 High Roller final table has to be Aymon Hata. With just over $300k in lifetime earnings, Hata has already doubled that and could dethrone some of the poker world's best High Roller regulars should be take this tournament down.

Hata comes into the final table fifth in chips and out of position against the likes of Kenney and Petrangelo, but anything can happen and he will hope to put some pressure on short stack Stephen Chidwick and fourth in chips Elio Fox.
