WPT Parx Open Poker Classic heading towards final table

Tuesday, 14 August 2012

The World Poker Tour (WPT) Parx Open Poker Classic from Bensalem, Pennsylvania, is nearing its conclusion as only 22 of the starting total of 500 have made it through to the dinner break on day three.

Players were falling in a quick but random sequence during the latter stages of the third day at the Parx Casino with Russell Thomas, a member of this year's exclusive and automatically rich October Nine, the last to leave in 23rd spot.

His prize of $10,403 in cash makes him the first 'Niner' to cash during the autumn run-up to World Series Of Poker (WSOP) main event final.

Thomas was preceeded by favourite Brock Parker, who also banked $10,403 for his troubles.

The overnight chip leader from the second day of action, Brent Roberts, had earlier passed one million chips but now sits firmly on 815,000 as the new man doing the talking is Stephen Reynolds on 1.485 million chips although Tony Gregg and Henry Lu are additionally still in the running.
