Chad Eveslage Leads 18 Into WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown Day 4

Chad Eveslage leads 18 hopefuls into the penultimate day of the WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown with massive advantage

With 1360 entrants, this year’s WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown entered the books as the fourth largest WPT Main Tour Main Event to have taken place in the history of the popular poker series.

After Day 3 of the tournament, that field was down to just the final 18 hopefuls, who are all eyeing the title, the first-place prize of $715,175, and the guaranteed seat into the season-ending WPT Tournament of Champions.

While the six players who will make it to the official final table of the tournament are anticipated to become known today, it will not be for another month and a half before the name of the champion becomes clear. The televised final table of the prestigious poker event will be played on May 30 at HyperX Esports Arena at Luxor Las Vegas.

But first things first, here is how action unfolded during the third day of the WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown at the host venue Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood.

Action kicked off with 90 players. The remaining survivors were led by Keith Ferrera who had 1.905 million in chips at the start of Day 3. Ferrera parlayed his start-of-the-day chip lead for a 19th-place finish for a payout of $29,690. The player was the final elimination of the night.

Fererra’s run for the WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown title was ended by the Day 3 chip leader, Chad Eveslage. Eveslage himself had a killer run at the host casino on Monday. He started the day about mid-stacked but multiplied his stack to eventually put 10.76 million into his bag at the end of the night.

Eveslage’s overnight stack was two times bigger than that of his nearest competitor, James Carroll. The latter had 5.25 million when organizers called it a day. Carroll is a one-time WPT champion. Jason Marshman bagged the third largest stack last night, good for 4.7 million.

Of his Day 3 run, the overnight chip leader said that he “just kept making hands” and that he really had “the easiest day ever.” Eveslage went on that his strategy for the new day of poker involved just coming into the host venue and playing well. The player admitted to never being in such a big spot before, but pointed out that he would try not to think about the big spot and focus on how to play instead.

Action resumes today at noon local time. The remaining players will play down to the six-handed final table. Each of the 18 survivors is guaranteed a min-cash of $29,690, but everyone is certainly vying for the first-place prize of $715,175 and the accompanying accolades.
