WPT Jacksonville bestbet Open: The Final Table Is Set!

A final table of six is set at the World Poker Tour Jacksonville bestbet Open Main Event after 3 days of play. Unfortunately, Jared Jaffee, Day 3 chip leader and winner of this event in 2013, fell a few spots shy of the WPT final table. He earned $13,935 in prize money and gained 50 WPT season XII POY points to take his total to 1,900 points (4th place POY standings).

It's a pity Jaffee won't be fighting for back-to-back titles on today's final table, however, there are still some familiar faces left in the competition including Champions Club members James Calderaro and Jordan Cristor, and Season VIII WPT Player of the Year Faraz Jaka! Calderaro won the most recent WPT event hosted in Florida when he won the Lucky Hearts Poker Open for $271,103 in February. It will be interesting to see if he manages to win back-to-back titles in Florida. 

The six finalist are guaranteed a minimum payday of $38,241. The winner will take home nothing less than $206,041! We will be back with another brief update tomorrow morning!

Seat 1. James Calderaro - 1,916,000 (95 bb)
Seat 2. Nabil Hirezi - 2,792,000 (139 bb)
Seat 3. Peter Le - 1,083,000 (54 bb)
Seat 4. Faraz Jaka - 542,000 (27 bb)
Seat 5. Brian Green - 444,000 (22 bb)
Seat 6. Jordan Cristos - 975,000 (48 bb)

Good luck to all those left in this event and its a shame that Jared Jaffee couldnt quite make the final table but he had a very good go at achieving it. James Calderaro would be my pick to take the first prize

Nice work if you can get it!
It's pretty insane that one final table, once in a year = someones yearly salary.
Best of luck to them.

Jared Jaffee didn’t got to the final table, that takes a lot of interest out of this tourney for those who are watching… but not for those who are still sitted there trying to put their hands on the first prize of $206K. Nabil Hirezi’s got a nice advantage in stack, but he will have to be able to know how to deal with that and not falling on other’s game of going to play with weaker hands to see if eliminates competition faster with the help of the table. The may cost chips for opponents, the leadership and even the almost guaranteed place in the final heads up – he now haves 36% of the total chips, when there’s a field of six.
