There are now just four players remaining at the final table of WPT Venice Grand Prix after last night’s episode on FSN (8pm and 11pm local time). During play last night, Gianluca Trebbi (pictured above) was eliminated in fifth place and collected €42,705 for his efforts, leaving two Italians (Andrea Dato and Alessandro Longobardi), a Dane (Simon Ravnsbaek) and Russian poker player Rinat Bogdanov.
These four players traded chips around the table all night long through a series of double-ups as almost every player was all in and called at least once during the episode and the all played very aggressively. One of those battles, between Dato and Bogdanov, is highlighted below.
Once the dust had settled, those four were still all standing but in different chip position than how they started, especially Ravnsbaek, who started the episode as the chip leader and ended up as the short stack as a result of some aggressive play that didn’t go so well for him. The video below shows him playing 8-4 aggressively, but actually getting paid off for it.
Here are the chip counts as they stood at the end ofthe episode:
1st – Andrea Dato – 1,470,000
2nd – Alessandro Longobardi – 1,245,000
3rd – Rinat Bogdanov – 1,065,000
4th – Simon Ravnsbaek – 895,000
With a new WPT Champion to be crowned at the end of the next episode, you can expect there to be a ton of action on Sunday night’s episode, so make sure to tune in to, or set your DVRs for, FSN on Sunday night at 8pm and 11pm local time.
