Darren Elias Wins A Third WPT Title!

Tags: Darren Elias, WPT Fallsview Poker Classic.
Posted on Tuesday, February 28, 2017 by "T".

After topping a field of 489 runners, Darren Elias won the WPT Fallsview Poker Classic CA$5,000 Main Event last Friday to collect yet another WPT title as well as CA$449,484 in prize money.

Elias, a U.S. poker pro with close to $4.5 million in live earnings thanks to his lastest victory, is the fifth person in World Poker Tour history to have won three titles. The other 4 players to have won 3 or more WPT titles are Carlos Mortensen, Gus Hansen, Chino Rheem, Anthony Zinno.

"It was a good tournament," Elias told WPT. "I got dealt a lot of good hands in this one, a lot of big preflop hands. I kept getting aces and kings, I got pretty lucky to win. It was smooth sailing most of the way."

Final table payouts:

1st: Darren Elias - C$449,484 ($335,436)*
2nd: David Eldridge - C$300,982 ($224,613)
3rd: Jean-Christophe Ferreira - C$193,583 ($144,465)
4th: Andrew Chen - C$143,199 ($106,865)
5th: Manig Loeser - C$107,399 ($80,149)
6th: Abdull Hassan - C$86,184 ($64,316)
*First-place prize includes a seat into the season-ending WPT Tournament of Champions.

Three WPT tournaments win is more than good with only five players that made the same three win.

With a 4.5 million earning in is career he most be a very good poker player and he probably go win another one for the record by himself. Smile Smile

Some players just know how to win bug tournaments, some players only get in the money at some times but he is the sort that can win, and he won 3 titles already and as some people posted above he can indeed win for the 4th time, why not, he has the skill

Well, if he really just kept dealing aces and kings that answers a lot question about how he reached this position. Also raises a lot of questions about how well they shuffled those decks IMO.

about $ 4.5 million in profits is of course a huge result and I think that many of us would like to be in place Darren Elias ..... on the other hand, the fact that he is the fifth man in the history of the World Poker Tour, which has won three title, he definitely deserved

Yeah I bet he's been put on the list of some hardworking burglars and mob people who are about to make a casual visit in his home when he'll be away playing tournies...
