Stephen Reynolds Takes Over 4 Million into the WPT Final Table at Parx Casino

Day 4 has come to a close at the World Poker Tour Parx Open Poker Classic near Philadelphia and the final television table of six is set. Stephen Reynolds will take the chip lead into the final table with just over 4 million. Anthony Gregg (3,600,000) and Chris Lee (3,040,000) also have more than 3 million, and joining them are Chris Vandeursen with 2,430,000; and short stacks Andre Nyffeler (895,000) and Larry Sharp (870,000). Here is a look at the final table seating chart with chip counts for when play resumes at 4 p.m. ET on Wednesday.

Some big names were lost along the way to the final table on Day 4, including Brent Roberts (15th), Vinny Pahuja (13th), and Athanasios Polychronopoulos (11th Place). Pahuja’s exit was particularly unpleasant. He raised to 95,000 preflop on the button and Joseph Wertz reraised 400,000 more, which was enough to put Pahuja all in. Pahuja made the all-in call for 430,000 total and they flipped over their cards:

Pahuja: A Q
Wertz: A T

Board: 9 6 4 T 8

Pahuja was eliminated on the hand and Wertz climbed above 2 million. Pahuja posted this tweet after his elimination: “Out 13th for 14.4k AQ < Joe Wertz’ AT BTN v SB for 430k AIPF at 10/20k. Guess I deserved that after getting it in bad twice. GL everyone”

On the final hand of the night Joey Couden (who lost every hand he played after the dinner break) min-raised from middle position to 60,000. Anthony Gregg moved all in from the small blind and Couden called all in for 550,000 with K K. Gregg showed J J, and Couden was a big favorite to double up. The board came Q 3 3 J 9, and Gregg spiked a jack on the turn to win the pot with a full house, jacks full of threes.

Gregg eliminated Couden on the television bubble in seventh place, and the Maryland resident also received a good luck Tweet from the most decorated Olympian in history, Michael Phelps during Tuesday. Phelps tweeted, “Glgl kid RT @wwwBTHEREcom: Appreciate the support! #weneedit” Gregg responded, ” @MichaelPhelps thanks man just doin my part to represent #teamMD
