Hit and Run: WPT Final Table; 100K Players In PokerStars Tourney; Jacob Loses On Jeopardy

Dustin Gouker : April 21st, 2015


The World Poker Tour event is down to six. The Sunday Storm sees a huge turnout. And a poker pro’s game show run is over. It’s all in our daily wrap-up of the world of poker, the Hit and Run.


They are down to a final table at the World Poker Tour Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown. The best known player left is Joe Ebanks — a former WSOP bracelet winner at his second WPT final table. Griffin Paul is the chip leader. Updates here. The winner will get a million dollars.

That’s a big tournament

The Sunday Storm at PokerStars, which had a million dollars for a guaranteed prize pool, attracted more than 100,000 players. That makes it one of the largest fields ever assembled for an online poker tournament. It’s not as big as some of the $1 buy-in events PokerStars has run, but it’s still pretty big.
