Nick Petrangelo Remains Leading towards WSOP $100,000 High Roller Final Table

In the world of poker, one of the most attractive gaming tournaments is usually the High Roller which provides players with tempting cash prizes and a premium feeling to the entire experience. The official Day 3 of the World Series of Poker Event #5: $100,000 No-Limit Hold’em High Roller brought even more action to the already sparkling with big names field and the chip leader at the end of the day remained Nick Petrangelo with his chip stack amounting to some 12,200,000.

The World Series of Poker progresses ahead with its attractive gaming offerings and this is just what the players registering for participation needed. Event #5 of the well-equipped schedule of the poker festival is no other than the High Roller tournament which features an impressive buy-in amounting to some $100,000 and an even more spectacular prize pool estimating to $10,185,000. It should be taken into account that the stellar performance of the players up to this point is boosted by their extensive experience in both live poker tournaments and online events.

The chip leader at the end of the second day of action was Nick Petrangelo, another renown name in the poker industry. He bagged some 13,460,000 and is determined to add another title to his 2015 winner position at the $3,000 No-Limit Hold’em Shootout tournament. During this edition of the High Roller Day 2, he managed to eliminate two of the most popular names on the unofficial leader board to the likings of Paul Volpe and Steffen Sontheimer. He remained the chip leader throughout the third day of action as well.

Quest to the Final Table Continues

In comparison to the previous days of poker action, this one was shorter reaching only several hours, since there were only ten players left at the beginning of the poker action. The initial arrangement was for them to play until there are only six of them remaining at the poker table.

This is how everyone who had made it this far in the High Roller tournament inched a step closer to the Final Table which is set to take place this Monday. For the chip leader, this day seemed quite uneventful as he managed to fold several times. One of the most promising players on the felt, Fedor Holz had to leave the race close to the final as he was eliminated from the tournament by the powerful player Elio Fox.

The latter managed to teach the chip leader position at the end of Day 1 of the High Roller event as well as to win Event #2: $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em Super Turbo Bounty. With these impressive accomplishments over the span of only several days, he made a convincing bid for more cashes throughout the poker festival.

At the end of the day, the runner-up position on the unofficial leader board was taken by Brym Kenney who now has a bagful of 10,200,000 in chips. The third position was claimed by Fox who increased his chip stack to 8,620,000. The official Final Table is set to commence this Monday bringing one of the remaining six players to the coveted throne and the first-place prize coming with it.
