The final table of the 2017 WSOP Global Casino Championship is set, and Alexander Lakhov will enter the final day of the tournament with the chip lead. He enters the final day of the tournament with 1,463,000, well ahead of the second place player (Sean Yu), who has 935,000. There are four other players still in contention, and combined they have fewer chips than Lakhov.
The six remaining players will return Thursday at noon for the official final table, which will be filmed for and televised at a later date.
