World Series of Poker - Asia Pacific - Coin LogoThe final table of the first ever WSOP APAC (Asia Pacific) main event is now set.

Benny Spindler will enter the final day of play as the tournament chip leader, though a very familiar face is lurking just behind.

Here are the chip counts heading into Monday's final table:

1. Benny Spindler, 2,931,000
2. Daniel Negreanu, 2,437,000
3. George Tsatsis, 2,321,000
4. Daniel Marton, 2,160,000
5. Kahle Burns, 905,000
6. Mikel Habb, 551,000
7. Russell Thomas, 490,000
8. Winfred Yu, 367,000

Benny Spindler, known as "toweliestar" on Pokerstars, is looking to add to his $3.6 million plus in total lifetime tournament cashes. Spindler has enjoyed a great deal of success in EPT events, having won the EPT UKIPT in September of 2011 and the EPT San Remo in October of 2012.

As mentioned, Daniel Negreanu will be lurking just behind Spindler as the final day of play gets underway. Negreanu is looking to capture his fifth World Series of Poker bracelet and add significantly to his nearly $16.4 million in lifetime tournament cashes. Negreanu's last bracelet came in the summer of 2008 - he came very close to winning #5 in September of 2009, but ultimately ended up finishing second in the World Series of Poker Europe main event.


All of the remaining eight players in the event will take home a minimum of $82,721 for making it through to the final table. The eventual winner of the event will receive $1,038,825 (AUD), while the runner-up will walk away with $637,911.

The final table will get underway at 2 pm local time on Monday afternoon and will be live streamed on WSOP.com and ESPN3.
