Damian Salas

An Argentinian player leads the final table

Damian Salas, an Argentinian poker player, will take the chip lead to the final table of the WPT World Online Championships Main Event at partypoker after bagging the biggest chip stack on day 2.

Salas has played poker for over a decade and became a household name in the poker community since he took the seventh place in the WSOP Main Event for $ 1,475,000 in 2017.

According to The Hendon Mob, Damian Salas impressively raised nearly $2.7 million in prize money in live tournaments and almost $5.5 million in online tournament money.

Meanwhile, he is not going to stop and would like to expand these figures, with a payout of at least 127,386 USD guaranteed by the current final table. The winner of the event will receive $1,715,667.

It is essential to know that Salas didn’t have a huge chip stack before he jumped into the chip lead position.

The summary of day 3

The WPTWOC Main Event drew 1,011 participants during two inaugural flights to generate a massive prize pool of $ 10,110,000. One hundred fifty-six players advanced to Day 2. On the second day, the field was reduced to just 24 players to start yesterday’s third day.

Ole Schemion was the first player to say goodbye to the tournament on day 3, winning a cash prize of $ 58,638 by finishing in the 24th place. Other notable players who advanced to Day 3 but failed to reach the final table were Claas Segebrecht ($ 11-103,122), Pieter Aerts ($ 13- $ 78,858), David Kitai ($ 14- $ 78,858), and Benjamin Rolle ($ 18- $ 58,638), chip leader of day 1b) and Georgios Zisimopoulos ($ 19- $ 58,638).

Meanwhile, Artur Martirosian started the penultimate day with a big lead over the rest of the field. He made it to the end of the day before bidding farewell to the tournament in 10th place for $103,122 on the final table bubble.

Salas’ chip lead is far from clear as he is only a handful of big blinds ahead of Phillip Mighall, who reaches the final table second. Others in the top 5 are Akseli Paalanen, Blaž Žerjav, and Victor Simionato.

Partypoker ambassador Dzmitry Urbanovich is also still doing well and is in seventh place on the final table. The final table was rounded off by Teun Mulder, László Molnár, and Bert Stevens.
