Mike Abratique Leads WPTDeepStacks Thunder Valley Final Table

Causing a frenzy of eliminations at the end of Day 2, Mike Abratique secured overwhelming chip lead into the final day of the poker tourney

The field of the WPTDeepStacks Thunder Valley Main Event has been reduced from 678 entries to just the final nine hopefuls for the title over the course of the past few days. The tournament is currently taking place at Thunder Valley Casino Resort, one of the hottest poker destinations in sunny California.

Day 2 of the event kicked off with 144 remaining hopefuls, who were eyeing a spot into the paid positions. The Main Event’s field crushed the $500,000 guarantee and created a prize pool of $675,660. The prize money was split into payouts for the top 85 finishers. The money bubble burst Sunday afternoon.

Sunday was an important day for two reasons. In the first place, the remaining players were looking to burst the bubble. Their next task was to set the official final table of nine. The final tablists will return at the host casino at noon local time today to determine the big champion.

At stake is a first-place prize of $121,000, including a $3,000 ticket into the championship event that will mark the end of the current season of the second most popular WPT-branded poker series.

Who Made It to the Final Table?

It was Mike Abratique who bagged and tagged the largest chip stack last night. The player navigated successfully through Day 2’s ordeals to amass just over 6 million in chips. Abratique gained quite some momentum when action was down to the final three tables and what came next for the overnight chip leader was a tear of him rapidly knocking one opponent after another.

His efforts secured him with a comfortable chip advantage into the final day of the Thunder Valley Main Event. Nick Wooderson was the player to put the second largest stack into his bag last night. The player had a total of 3.675 million at the end of Day 2. Rounding out the top three chip counts is Kindah Sakkal with 2.715 million into the final day of the tournament.

Tuiofu Munkin with 1.985 million, Yury Klimenkov with 1.785 million, John Hadley with 1.73 million, Patrick Johnson with 1.34 million, Patrick Dunn with 685,000, and Aaron Dalnoot with 400,000 were the other six players to make it thus far into the $1,100 buy-in event at Thunder Valley.

As mentioned above, action is set to resume today at noon California time. The nine finalists will play down to a winner. Each of the remaining survivors is guaranteed a min-cash of $12,120 but they are all vying for the $121,000 top prize. It should also be noted that none of the final tablists has previously scooped a title from the WPTDeepStacks series.
