The Final Six Contenders for the WPT World Poker Challenge in Reno

On March 28, 2007, the final table for the WPT World Poker Challenge held in Reno was televised for poker enthusiasts all over the world. The current chip leader is David "The Dragon" Pham, who has $1,655,500 in total chips.

Poker play commenced at 5:00 p.m. PST. David Pham, a two-time World Series of Poker winner, has been consistently at the top of the playing field since the first day of the preliminaries. Pham will be making his 4th World Poker Tour televised debut. Pham's experience will help him throughout the competition.

The champion of the event will be taking home a total of $683,473 in cash prizes and a seat at the WPT World Championship this April with a $25,000 buy-in cost. Pham will be competing for the title against the toughest poker players in the circuit today, like Juan Carlos Alvarado, who has $1,107,000 in total chips. Alvarado is a well-known online poker player who recently finished in second place at the L.A. Poker Classic NLHE Category.

Aside from Alvarado, JC Tran is also a player to watch out for. Tran has a stack of $904,000 in chips. He has been in 2 final World Poker Tour tables this year, like his runner-up finish in the L.A. Poker Classic.

Aside from Pham, Alvarado and Tran, the other players at the final table are Danny Wong, who has $623,000 in total chips and finished in 4th place at the WSOP Circuit Event back in Rincon and took home total winnings close to $1 million.

Also at the table is Mark Seif who has a total of $325,000 in chips. Seif won 2 WSOP tournament bracelets back in 2005. And last but not least, John Hom rounds out the final group. Hom brings $119,000 in chips and has 2 tournament bracelets at the World Series of Poker in 2002 at the NLHE Event.
