Darren Elias made World Poker Tour history in the Bobby Baldwin Classic on Wednesday night. Elias won the $10,000 buy-in event to become the winningest player in WPT history. Three days later, the four-time champion has a chance at another WPT title. Elias will return to PokerGO with the chip lead, this time at the Tournament of Champions final table.
When Elias debuted on PokerGO earlier this week, he entered the Bobby Baldwin Classic final table with the chip lead. He didn’t surrender it either, as Elias went wire-to-wire against experienced opposition. If Elias wants to make more WPT history this week, he’ll again have to go through an experienced group of WPT Champions Club members.
Matas Cimbolas may not have the WPT resume to contend with Elias, but the 25-year-old is within touching distance. Cimbolas hopes to quickly turn this five-handed final table into a two horse race, as he and Elias are the only players over the 1 million chip mark.
The three players at the bottom of the leaderboard are all near the 500,000 chip mark. Matthew Waxman leads that group with just over 550,000, while PokerGO commentator Nick Schulman and David Benyamine are both under a half-million.
A complete list of the WPT Tournament of Champions final table chip counts is provided below:
1. David Benyamine – 440,000
2. Darren Elias – 1,400,000
3. Matthew Waxman – 554,000
4. Nick Schulman – 447,000
5. Matas Cimbolas – 1,159,000
