We start WPT Jacksonville bestbet Open – Part 2 on Sunday at 8pm and 11pm local time on FSN much like we started Part 1 last Sunday, with six players still seated at the final table and Shawn Cunix as the chip leader. While that hardly tells the whole story of what happened during Part 1, the fact remains that five players still need to be eliminated before we can crown a new WPT Champion, and this episode definitely gets us on our way to that end.
Here’s what the chip counts were when Part 1 ended:
1. Shawn Cunix – 4,300,000
2. James Calderaro – 2,375,000
3. Darren Elias – 980,000
4. Daniel Buzgon – 960,000
5. Tony Dunst – 505,000
6. Will Failla – 460,000
As you can see, Cunix has a monstrous chip lead, while the bottom half of the chips counts are pretty crowded under a million in chips. There’s plenty of battling between the short stacks and not all of them will survive the episode. One who definitely doesn’t is WPT Raw Deal analyst Tony Dunst, who returns to the booth to break down the skill battle between Cunix and noted online pro Darren Elias.
Away from the felt, the WPT Royal Flush Girls take a tour of the Jacksonville bestbet facilities and WPT Anchor Marianela Pereyra sits down with WPT Champion James Dempsey for the newest 5 Questions segment (see below):
It’s an exciting episode with plenty of poker action for all, so make sure to tune in to, or set your DVR for, Sunday night at 8pm and 11pm local time on FSN to see who’s left standing after the dust settles at WPT Jacksonville bestbet Open.
