Darren Elias Headlines Borgata Poker Open Final Six

Level 32: 80,000-160,000, 20,000 ante

Darren Elias_WPT Borgata Poker Open_S13_Day 4_Giron_8JG0307
Day 4 of the Borgata Poker Open began with 31 players remaining from the starting field of 1,226 entries. After a grueling eight levels, six players remain with hopes of capturing a coveted World Poker Tout title and getting their name enscribed on the WPT Champions Cup. Leading the way is Kane Kalas with 14,025,000. He began Day 4 sixth in chips and steadily built his stack before seizing a sizable chip lead on the final hand.

Darren Elias (pictured above) is second in chips with 8,000,000. He is making his third televised WPT final table and his second at Borgata. In Season X, Elias placed fifth in the Borgata Poker Open for $230,610 and followed that with a third-place finish later in the season at WPT Jacksonville for $147,850.

Here is the complete final table lineup:

Seat 1. Kane Kalas - 14,025,000 (87 bb)
Seat 2. Ray Qartomy - 1,795,000 (11 bb)
Seat 3. Darren Elias - 8,000,000 (50 bb)
Seat 4. Blake Bohn - 7,705,000 (48 bb)
Seat 5. Jose Serratos - 2,050,000 (12 bb)
Seat 6. Aaron Overton - 3,245,000 (20 bb)

The final table action gets underway on Friday at 4pm ET and there will also be a live stream presented by DraftKings.com at 4:30pm on a half-hour deley.

Tune in tomorrow for hand-for-hand coverage as the quest to crown the newest WPT champion concludes.

Level 32: 80,000-160,000, 20,000 ante

Jean Gaspard
Hand #171  -  Kane Kalas raises under the gun to 365,000, and Jean Gaspard (pictured) moves all in from middle position for 1,255,000. Darren Elias calls from the cutoff, and Kalas also calls. Any further betting will create a side pot between Kalas and Elias.
