Six-time WPT Final Tablist John Juanda finished WPT World Championship Super High Roller – Part 2 where he started, with a commanding chip lead over a very talented final table of poker pros and amateurs alike. Now, with only three players remaining, he is looking to have his name engraved on the WPT Champions Cup for the first time ever. Meanwhile, Tom Marchese climbed up from the short stack to put himself in good position to also secure his first WPT victory.
Here are the chip counts for when the episode started:
John Juanda – 4,695,000
Andrew Robl – 3,410,000
Daniel Perper – 2,205,000
Bill Klein – 1,695,000
Tom Marchese – 1,600,000
After a lot of back and forth, we lost the two amateurs at the final table as they succumbed to the pros and hit the rail. Daniel Perper exited in fourth, earning $394,740, and Bill Klein said goodbye to this first WPT final table in fifth place, walking away with $263,160.
By the time the action had finished for the episode, Juanda had a solid chiplead of 2.5 million over online wunderkind Robl, with Marchese nipping at Robl’s heels just 200,000 behind him in the counts. Here are what the chip counts were as the episode closed:
John Juanda – 6,250,000
Andrew Robl – 3,785,000
Tom Marchese – 3,570,000
