2013 EPT Berlin Main Event Day 5: Robert Haigh Leads Final Table

The penultimate day of the 2013 European Poker Tour Berlin Main Event nearly came and went quickly on Friday. After a little more than six hours, 17 players were whittled to nine, but from there it took nearly six more hours before one more player busted to create the official eight-handed final table.

The way many hands played out when nine-handed had the commentators on the live stream confused and the hands-per-hour rate was very slow, adding to reason for such a long day.

When the day did end, Germany's Robert Haigh was set to enter Saturday's final as the favorite to win the ?880,000 top prize because he bagged the most chips (5,495,000).

Here's how the final table stacks up:
Seat Player Chips
1 Julian Thomas 1,735,000
2 Roman Korenev 2,995,000
3 Robert Haigh 5,495,000
4 Alexander Helbig 3,315,000
5 Lasse Frost 3,700,000
6 Pascal Vos 1,750,000
7 Daniel-Gai Pidun 5,250,000
8 Roman Herold 3,050,000
