Lewis in L.A. Poker Classic Finale

Lewis in L.A. Poker Classic Finale

Thursday, 28 February 2013

He might have lost his position at the top of the chip counts, but the UK’s Toby Lewis has made it through to the final table of the WPT L.A. Poker Classic.

The British pro’s stack fluctuated throughout yesterday’s penultimate session, but after Garrett Greer bubbled the final table in seventh place, Lewis’s place in the finale was set.

Despite having tasted EPT success in the past, Toby has yet to claim a WPT title, let alone a $1 million+ first place prize.

That fact isn’t likely to worry the young player though as he’ll be too focused on taking some chips from current chip leader Paul Volpe.

The American pro bagged up 4,195,000 chips at the close of play and will triple his lifetime winnings if he can outlast just five more players.
Today’s session kicks off at 4pm local time and you can catch all the action via the WPT’s live stream on a half hour delay.

Final Table Chip Counts:
1 Paul Volpe 4,195,000
2 Paul Klann 3,375,000
3 Daniel Fuhs 3,280,000
4 David Fong 2,295,000
5 Jesse Yaginuma 1,235,000
6 Toby Lewis 1,125,000
