Tony Gregg, Vladimir Troyanovskiy Also Part of Final TablePublished on January 14th, 2016 12:23 pm EST
The final table of the 2016 PCA (Pokerstars Caribbean Adventure) main event has now been set.
After a gruelling day of play on Wednesday, the chip counts heading into the final table look like this:
Mike Watson, 6,585,000
Tony Gregg, 5,690,000
Vladimir Troyanovskiy, 5,025,000
Toby Lewis, 4,665,000
Phillip McAllister, 3,040,000
Randy Kritzer, 2,565,000
There is a considerable amount of firepower at the final table, as Mike Watson is a former Bellagio Cup IV winner, while Tony Gregg has nearly $10 million in total lifetime tournament cashes, having won the One Drop High Roller event in 2013 for nearly $5 million. In addition, Gregg famously finished in second place in the 2009 PCA main event for $1.7 million, so you know that he desperately wants to take down the event this year.
Vladimir Troyanovskiy shouldn't be slept on either, as he has nearly $4 million in total lifetime tournament cashes. This will truly be a deeply talented final table.
Speaking of Tony Gregg, his demolition of Ken Demlakian's stack at the end of Day 5 ended up setting the final table. Gregg scored a massive double-up when he elected to call a push from Demlakian after a flop of 2d-9s-7d. Gregg turned over K-9 for top pair, while Demlakian sheepishly turned over his A-K. Gregg's hand held up and he surged up the standings. Demlakian was eliminated in 7th place a short while later.
Here are the final table payouts:
1st - $833,260
2nd - $507,240
3rd - $356,020
4th - $267,340
5th - $207,940
6th - $153,920
