The remaining eight players will be battling it out for the first place prize of $1.34 million dollars. All eight of the players are guaranteed at least $118k for making the final table.

There were a number of notable eliminations on Friday, including:

Isaac "westmenloAA" Baron, who was crippled by the pocket Kings of Dag Palovic (Baron held pocket sevens) and eliminated shortly thereafter by Dario Minieri.

Markus Golser, who was eliminated after putting all of his chips in the middle holding A-Q. He and another player were called by the A-K of Dag Palovic, and Golser was eliminated.

The final table will take place on Saturday and begins at 3 pm local time. Who will win the last EPT event before the "EPT Grand Final" in Monte Carlo? Can local favorite Dario "The Scarf" Minieri win the event, or will someone be able to overcome Minieri's chip lead and take down the event?
