Another Sunday, another great episode of World Poker Tour on FSN with plenty of poker action and tense moments as we said goodbye to two final table players – Jason Somerville in 6th ($202,910) and Jason Burt in 5th ($252,980).
The story of the final table was the brutal beats that were being dealt out on the river time and time again. Check out the clip below showing a hand between Noah Schwartz and Dan Kelly that comes down to a final river card. This happened over and over again at this final table and throughout the tournament.
The other storyline from this final table comes in the form of WPT Boot Camp alumnus and amateur poker player Sean Jazayeri, who came into this final table as the chip leader going up against five young poker pros. Undaunted, Jazayeri maintained his chip lead in the face of some aggressive play and will go into next week with a hefty lead over the rest of the table. Here’s another clip from last night’s episode in which Tony Dunst analyzes the play between Jazayeri and one of those young poker pros, Schwartz.
Here is what the players’ chip counts will be when we pick things back up next Sunday:
1. Sean Jazayeri – 7,365,000
2. Dan Kelly – 5,595,000
3. David Sands – 2,110,000
4. Noah Schwartz – 1,400,000
Make sure to tune in to, or set your DVRs for, FSN next Sunday at 8pm and 11pm local time to see if Jazayeri can maintain his chip lead in the face of the unrelenting pressure from the young pros or if one of them can take the lead away from him.
