Paul Griffin leads the final-table of six - WPT Seminole Poker Showdown
After four days of tough competition, the Main Event of the Florida leg of the 2015 World Poker Tour series now reaches its final table. 1,476 poker players part took in this $ 3,500 buy-in WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown. That massive field was trimmed to 6 when Day 3 battle ended. 18 players actually battled it out on Day 3, including notable names Cornel Cimpan and Mohsin Charania, all seeking a third WPT title. However, Florida was not the best place where they could make it happen. Against their will, both men were sent to the rail, respectively to 17th and 15th place for $ 26,500 and $ 39,000. A number of high-profile players also found their own run cut in the middle of the race. Include the likes of 2013 CPPW Jacksonville winner, Harvey Vandeven (12th, $ 58,500), well-positioned Player Of the Year contender David Peters (10th, $ 58,500) and WSOP bracelet winner Dan Heimiller (8th, $ 123,000).
Six players will return this Wednesday in the poker room of Seminole Hard Rockn, in Hollywood, for the World Poker Tours televised final table. Paul Griffin leads the pack with a stunning stack of 14,290,000 chips. His nearest rival, Andre Crooks, is armed with 10,350,000 in chips, followed by Joe Ebanks (6,585,000), Brian Green (5,205,000), Ryan Rivers (4,170,000) and Shawn Nguyen (3,615,000). Given his past performance, Joe Ebanks is likely to accomplish an exceptional feat on this ultimate day; he has never won such event since 2011, the year when he emerged victorious of the $ 10,000 buy-in World Series of Poker Six-Max Main Event for $ 1,158,481.
