Final table time at WPT Foxwoods

Rajendra Patel

Rajendra Patel will be the dominant force when the final table kicks off at the Foxwoods Poker Classic. He is a major chip leader with $3,347,000, ahead of Seth Berger in second place, who sits with $1,505,000.

Day 4 of the World Poker Tour (WPT) Season 5 tournament had barely started when Rajendra Patel flopped top-pair and eliminated Ron Weiss, who also had top-pair, but with a weaker kicker.

Patel only eliminated one more player during the day, Justin Pechie who finished in 14th place. Pechie moved all-in pre-flop, and was in a good position with K-J against Patel's J-T, but had to leave the tournament when Patel flopped a king-high straight.

Otherwise, Patel kept a rather low profile, but managed to build up his chip lead by playing solid and somewhat conservative poker. At one point he even laid down A-Q (face-up) when short-stacked Frankie Flowers had moved all-in from under the gun.

The final table starts at 5 p.m. (EDT), and Seth Berger, Antonio Cavezza, and Fred Goldberg will be Raj Patel's main competitors for the $1,272,905 first prize.

Paul Matteo and Allen Kessler are rather short-stacked and will need to double up quickly to have a chance.

Here are the chip counts going into the final table:

1stRaj Patel$3,347,000
2nd Seth Berger $1,505,000
3rd Antonio Cavezza $1,391,000
