Final Table Set at World Series of Poker Circuit Regional Championship

Gabe Patgorski Leads Stacked Final Table


Check out live updates from the final table now.

Gabe PatgorskiA long day 2 made for a quick day 3 and the final table of the 2010 World Series of Poker Circuit Regional Championship in Hammond, Indiana is now set.

Leading the final nine players is Gabe Patgorski, who pretty much had his way during play to end the night with 2,263,000, which is more than three times the average.

The day started off at a furious pace and during the first level of play, a total of eight players, all online pros, had hit the rail. Among them were Mohsin Charania, Adam Levy, Shawn Busse, Justin Smith, Keven Stammen and Ryan Julius.

David SandsThe online pro busting trend continued when Chris Klodnicki and David Baker hit the rail. By the time the field has reached the final 10, Patgorski, David Sands and Shannon Shorr had separated themselves from the pack and were abusing the bubble.

This bubble had special significance, because not only would the tenth-place finisher miss the televised final table, but he would also miss a guaranteed spot in the National Championship freeroll tournament that takes place at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.

In the end, it was Card Player columnist Steve Zolotow who earned the unfortunate distinction after making a short stacked shove against Sands.

With that, the final table was set. Other notables headlining the table are Curt Kohlberg, Bernard Lee and a short stacked Brandon Adams.
