A Short Day 3 Ends with Final Table of Six Set at WPT Fallsview Poker Classic

Feb 23, 2016


Just 12 players returned at noon today for Day 3 at the WPT Fallsview Poker Classic, and it took them just three and a half hours to play down to the WPT final table of six. The chip leader at the final table will be Robert Forbes with 4,015,000. We also have a very interesting storyline with Soren Turkewitsch making the final table at this event for a second time. He won the inaugural WPT Main Event at the Fallsview Casino back in Season V, and he has a chance to become the first player to win the same event in WPT history tomorrow. Here is a look at the final table seating chart with chip counts.

Seat 1: Robert Forbes – 4,015,000 (80 bb)
Seat 2: Soren Turkewitsch – 1,830,000 (36 bb)
Seat 3: Mike Bui – 2,860,000 (57 bb)
Seat 4: David Ormsby – 1,550,000 (31 bb)
Seat 5: Thomas Archer – 880,000 (17 bb)
Seat 6: Derek Verrian – 1,565,000 (31 bb)

Here is a look at the remaining prize pool up for grabs.

1: $383,407 CAD
2: $268,773 CAD
3: $172,823 CAD
4: $127,805 CAD
5: $95,949 CAD
6: $76,874 CAD

The eliminations came early and often today as play picked up just where it left off after an extremely fast Day 2. The players that hit the rail on Tuesday were Jonathan Gray (12th), Peter Jetten (11th), Samuel Tsehai (10th), Jordan Saccucci (9th), Kyle Chang (8th), and Patrick Blye (7th).

Cards will get into air at Noon ET on Wednesday. The WPT live reporting team will be here to bring you hand-for-hand updates, chip counts, and photos from Niagara Falls, Ontario.
