The Partouche Poker Tour (PPT) in Cannes has come down to the final table, and the nine players left will continue the battle in November. Vanessa Selbst is in the lead.
Only 18 players were left in the battle for the €1.3 million main prize on the fifth day of the PPT. 740 players started competing for the main prize, including many famous pros like Phil Laak and Mike Matusow. The Unabomber appeared with what used to be his hair changed into a very impressive blond-orange mohawk, and took place 15 in the tournament.

The final table still has a very interesting line-up, highlighting Vanessa Selbst, winner of PokerStars NAPT Mohegan Sun as the chipleader, followed by Ali Tekintagmac at fourth place (Ali won the Spain stop of the 2010 EPT) and Tobias Reinkemmer, winner of the EPT Monte Carlo High Roller event at place 8.

The final table will also have one very interesting figure, Ibrahim Raouf (who is rather a businessman than a poker player), who caused serious headaches to the others with his revolutionary/peculiar gameplay. The Egyptian billionaire seemed very keen to use the following tactics: after preflop calls, he would check with his opponent until the river, where he would eventually shove all-in.

Raouf might not be the most experienced player at the final table, but his third position will surely be a threat to all his opponents between the 6th – 7th November.
