Final Table at WPT Championship Now Set

The atmosphere at the WPT Championship was thick with tension as the final fifteen players sat down to battle it out for a place at the final table. Only six of them would eventually make it, making the competition extra fierce. Eventually, though, despite everyone’s wishes, the field really did whittle down to the final six, with Galen Hall in the lead.

A Stellar Run

Galen Hall has been having quite a memorable year. First, he started the year off with a huge blast and won the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) Main Event, earning himself a very sizeable $2.3 million. Now, it looks as if he’s gearing up for another huge win. However, it won’t be an easy road to the top. Several talented players have made it into the final table, and it looks as if things will be getting pretty heated up from here on out. Hall was actually the chip leader going into the fifth day, and he had a pretty sizeable lead so it didn’t look as if he would be bumped from his pedestal any time soon. David Williams, who is currently the reigning WPT World Champion, was among the first to be eliminated. He exited at 14th place, ending all possibilities of a historic win. Ashton Griffin and Daniel Alaei were also eliminated along the way. At seventh place, and being the unfortunate final table bubble boy, was David Peters, who was eliminated by Scott Seiver.

The Final Table

As it is, the members of the six-headed final table were finally determined after David Peters went home. At sixth place is Justin Young, who rose through the ranks, and made it into the final table with 1,750,000 chips. Next to him is Freddy Bonyadi who has 2,470,000 chips left. At fourth place is Tony Gargano who has 3,550,00 chips. At the third place, with a very close chip stack to Gargano, is Roger Teska with 3,600,000 chips. Then, finally, we have Scott Seiver at second place, with 5,075,000 chips. It’s going to be a pretty challenging fight though because Galen Hall has 5,095,000. That’s almost equal to what Seiver has. At this point, though, it really could be anyone’s game. Seiver is pretty pumped up about winning the tournament because it’s his first final table. Whoever wins will earn the grand prize of $1.6 million as well as the prestigious title of WPT Champion.
