Nicolas Chouity Takes Chip Lead to WPT Cyprus Final Table

Nicolas Chouity

One former EPT Grand Final winner hit the dust on Day 4 of WPT Cyprus but another will take the chip lead to the final table.

2013 champ Antonio Buonanno, despite having a huge chip lead to start the day, fell out of contention in ninth after calling all-in with J-J only to run into K-K. 

On the other hand Nicolas Chouity, who won the EPT Grand Final in 2010 for $2.2 million, ended with a chip-leading stack of 4.3 million.

The Lebanese pro will look to add the second part of poker’s so-called Triple Crown at the final table tomorrow.

Lewis Survives to Make Final Table

U.K. poker pro Toby Lewis made it through the Day 4 play down with 1 million chips, which makes him one of the short stacks heading into the six-player final table.

888poker pro Sofia Lövgren wasn’t quite as lucky, losing two flips early and settling for 26th place and a $10,800 payout.

Toby Lewis still alive and fighting.

The final table also includes Ori Miller, Igor Devkin, Alexander Lakhov and WPT Champion’s Club member Dmitry Gromov.

The player who actually manages to outlast all 404 runners will receive a first-place prize of $325,400.

Action resumes at 1 p.m. local time tomorrow and you can follow along via the WPT live updates. Here are the chip counts at the end of play:

  • Seat 1: Ori Miller - 2,270,000 (57bb)
