-- Poker King wearing dark shades - presenting NAPT - North American Poker Tour logo --The final table of the NAPT Venetian High Roller $25,000 Bounty Shootout event, which is set to begin on Thursday afternoon, will feature some of the very best young poker players in the world today.

The players who won their tables on Tuesday and will move on to the Thursday final table are:

Joe Cassidy
Peter Eastgate
Ashton Griffin
Brett Richey
Faraz Jaka
Scott Seiver
Hoyt Corkins

Scott "mastrblastr" Seiver put on a masterful performance at his table, eliminating every single one of his opponents for a total of $30,000 in bounties.

Hoyt Corkins dominated his table as well on Tuesday, eliminating all but one of his opponents.

All seven players who made the Thursday final table made $75,000 for winning their tables, in addition to the bounties that they were able to earn (players earn $5,000 for each player that they knock out of the tournament).

At stake on Thursday?

1. $30,000 in total final table bounties
2. $100,000 to the player who ends up with the most bounties
3. $460,000 to the eventual winner of the event

Hoyt Corkins will be the oldest player at the final table (by far), but don't expect him to get run over by his much-younger competition. Corkins has two WSOP bracelets, two WPT titles (including a victory last month) and over $5 million in total lifetime tournament cashes.

The final table will be an interesting mix of tournament and cash game players. Cassidy, Griffin and Seiver are often found playing in high stakes cash games online, while Eastgate, Jaka and Corkins tend to focus on tournaments.

The final table will get under way on Thursday afternoon - it should be a great one.
