On Saturday, the final table was all set in the Monster World Poker Tour Tournament with Jonathan Jaffe leading the path with 996000 in chips.
The last 6 poker players would go back on Sunday at 4 pm (local time) to play down to a champ in the very first tournament, and what a final table it is about to be.
The tournaments second day happened with thirty-one of the sixty-four entrants coming back to action. The top 8 positions were set to pay out, and following Justin Young elimination in tenth place, the last 9 joined at one table to erupt the bubble. The very last person to go home with nothing in hand proved to be Ravi Raghavan, garnering the undesirable title of “bubble boy.”
With his riddance, the top 8 finishes attained the money, along with a minimum payout worth US$ 38160. Yevgeniy Timoshenko was the very first to bust, decreasing in 8th spot to Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi. After that, to end out the day as well as set the official World Poker Tour final table, Andy Frankenberger short stack finally yielded and he busted in 7th to Schwartz, garnering US$ 47700.
Reaching the final table of the event, Schwartz told that this is really amazing. He had already won one event in this actual room – an Alpha8. Therefore he is really very excited. This is his hometown and I really mean a lot. More importantly, this is the Tournament of Champions, and the first one ever. He know that he has got stiff contest to play against, but this is nothing he could not overcome.
