Stephen Reynolds leads WPT Parx final table

Posted by Steve Ruddock on Aug 15, 2012 Posted in Tournament News, WPT News | No Comments »

The 500 players (which includes some reentries) who took part in the World Poker Tour Parx Open Poker Classic has been whittled down to just six players who will now be competing for the top-prize of over $416k and the title of World Poker Tour champion.

The final table of the tournament is a lesson in the haves and the have not’s, as four of the players have over 80 big blinds heading into the final day of the WPT Parx Main Event, while the final two players have a mere 29 big blinds each. The chip-leader Stephen Reynolds is sitting on a massive chip-stack of over 4 million chips, 134 big blinds, which is more than the typical starting stack in a tournament!

Here is a look at the final table seating assignments and chip counts:

* Seat 1: Stephen Reynolds – 4,035,000 (134 bb)

* Seat 2: Andre Nyffeler – 895,000 (29 bb)

* Seat 3: Chris Lee – 3,040,000 (101 bb)

* Seat 4: Tony Gregg – 3,600,000 (120 bb)

* Seat 5: Larry Sharp – 870,000 (29 bb)

* Seat 6: Chris Vandeursen – 2,430,000 (81 bb)

The fairly anonymous final table may be lacking in star-power but the players are very well-respected among their peers including Day 3 chip-leader Tony Gregg, who final tabled a 2012 WSOP event, the EPT high-roller event in Monte Carlo, and the PokerStars PCA Main Event, where he finished in 6th place. Gregg first came on the poker radar when he finished in 2nd place at the 2009 PCA, pocketing $1.7 million.

Here is a look at the final table payouts for the WPT Parx Open Poker Classic:

* 1st place: $416,127

* 2nd place: $244,877

* 3rd place: $158,450

* 4th place: $108,034
