Stacked Final Table at WPT Bellagio Cup V

Stacked Final Table at WPT Bellagio Cup V

Monday, 20 July 2009

The World Poker Tour’s flagship event, in this case the fifth edition of the Bellagio Cup, has been narrowed down from a disappointing starting field of 268 (compared to last year reaching over 500) to just six.

Despite the downward trend of entry numbers for the declining World Poker Tour, eight-time bracelet-winner Erik Seidel revealed in an interview that he believes this is the “toughest WPT final table ever”.

He leads the field in terms of accolades but Justin “BoostedJ” Smith is just as much of a legend in the online tournament world as Seidel is in brick and mortar. He is accompanied by another online sensation and sometime Bluff Europe contributor Alec Torelli. In addition, Alexander Gomes is not to be ruled out.

The chip counts and full list of remaining players is as follows:

Faraz Jaka 5041k
Justin Smith 2992k
Alec Torelli 2623k
Erik Seidel 2170k
Christopher Sonesson 1671k
Alexandre Gomes 1586k

The winner of the tournament will receive over $1.1m.
