Cuándo WPT Gran Premio de Venecia: Parte 2 airs this Sunday night at 8pm and 11pm local time on FSN, the man sitting at the top of the chip counts will be Danish poker player Simón Ravnsbaek.

No stranger to WPT final tables, this is Ravnsbaek’s second trip to the final six at a WPT event, the first came at Season IX WPT Vienna where he finished third for a €169,690 payday. That was the largest payday to date of the Dane’s career, a mark he can eclipse at Gran Premio de Venecia WPT if he is able to maintain his chip lead and capture the €229,800 first-place prize.

Watch the video above to see Ravnsbaek talk about his last trip to a WPT final table, his mindset going into play at this event and how this event has progressed so far for him.

To see if Ravnsbaek can stay atop the chip counts and collect his largest paycheck ever, you’ll need to tune in on, or set your DVR for, Sunday night at 8pm and 11pm on FSN.
