Toby Lewis Reaches WPT L.A. Poker Classic Final Table

Toby Lewis

The $10,000 buy-in World Poker Tour L.A. Poker Classic has reached its final table and British pro Toby Lewis has managed to navigate his way through to it. Lewis will start the finale sixth from six in chips, but he still has a realistic chance of winning the $1,004,090 first place prize.

Judging by the WPT Live Updates blog, Lewis had a rather uneventful day which saw his stack of 1,816,000 dwindle to 1,125,000 over the course of seven-and-a-half hours of poker (including breaks). Lewis’ stack represents 22 big blinds, and although this means he has less room to manoeuvre than what he would prefer, he is just one double up from finding himself right back in contention.

Leading the way going into the six-handed final table is Paul Volpe and his 4,195,000 stack. Volpe is an American pro, now living in Canada, who finished 20th in the 2012 World Series of Poker Main Event. That superb result aside, Volpe is better known as “paulgees81,” the alias he uses when he is terrorising opponents in online poker tournaments. According to the PocketFives site, Volpe has over $4,100,000 in tracked online tournament cashes. It is safe to say Volpe knows his way around a poker table!

Also on the final table are Paul Klann, David Fong, Jesse Yaginuma and Danny Fuhs and they will all have a major input on who walks away with the title of WPT L.A. Poker Classic champion.

The finale table begin at 16:00 Pacific Time and will continue until one player has all of the chip in his possession. Will it be Volpe who continues to dominate, or will Lewis bring home the bacon for the Brits? We do not have long to wait to find out.
