During the U.S Poker Open, Stephen Chidwick leading a final table was a recurring headline. The British professional made five final tables and won twice and even though today’s PokerGO stream will feature Chidwick in a different series, it is the same story for the USPO Champion.

Chidwick bagged the top stack heading into Friday’s ARIA High Roller Series $10,000 final table, which is currently live on PokerGO. There are other big names and big stacks in contention, including Jake Schindler.

Schindler finished second in last summer’s Super High Roller Bowl and second in last month’s U.S. Poker Open $50,000 Main Event. He’ll return near the chip average, behind Chidwick and Sean Winter, but ahead of the two final table short stacks.

That is where most of the early action could be centered, as Nick Schulman and Byron Kaverman will attempt to avoid the bubble. While five players return to the final table, just four will cash, meaning that there could be some tactical play through the early going.

A complete list of the final table players and their chip counts can be found below:

  1. Jake Schindler – 417,000
  2. Byron Kaverman – 295,000
  3. Stephen Chidwick – 895,000
  4. Nick Schulman – 355,000
  5. Sean Winter – 828,000

The ARIA High Roller Series $10,000 payouts are also listed below:

  1. $128,800
  2. $78,400
  3. $44,800
  4. $28,000

After the bubble bursts, the remaining four players will compete for a nearly $300,000 prize pool, with $128,800 set aside for the eventual winner.

PokerGO will bring you all the action until an ARIA High Roller Series $10K champion is crowned. Follow both Poker Central and PokerGO for exclusive ARIA High Roller Series updates throughout the day.
