WPT Online: WPT Champion Tony Sinishtaj Leads Main Event Final Table

Sep 21, 2020

By Sean Chaffin

It’s been a great week of poker in the WPT Online Borgata Series powered by partypoker US Network, and Monday brings the final day of the series. Players have been blessed with some nice prize pools and that continued over the weekend. Every tournament in the series topped the guarantee except the first tournament, and even that just missed by $1,000.

With one day left, players can check out the live stream of the Main Event final table on Monday as well as one last side event. It promises to be a big Monday and here’s a look at what to expect as well as a recap of the big weekend action.

$1,060 Main Event (Phase 2)

Only eight players remain in the field after the action kicked off on Sunday. The event attracted 440 entries for a prize pool of $432,700. That’s a significant increase over June’s WPT Online Poker Open prize pool of $317,540.

The winner takes home $77,350 and a Hublot Big Bang E Titanium watch valued at $5,200. “chaposticks “ brings the biggest stack into Monday’s final table with just over 34 million. Sitting just behind him is Champions Club member Tony Sinishtaj (pictured), who won the WPT Seminole Rock Poker Showdown in Season XVI for $661,283. Here’s a look at the final table.
