The World Poker Tour (WPT) California Swing has been the series of repeat performances. Anthony Zinno won the first stop of the tour at the L.A. Poker Classic, which was a back-to-back win after taking down WPT Fallsview. Then Taylor Paur won WPT Bay 101 and made his way to the final table at WPT Rolling Thunder for a second final table in as many events. Continuing the trend, Ravee Mathi Sundar won WPT Rolling Thunder after accompanying Taylor Paur to the final table at WPT Bay 101.
Think about this for a minute: of the six players to make the final table in the last two WPT events, two of the six were the same names.
When action resumed on Wednesday, Sundar held the second-best stack with a healthy 118 big blinds to play with. Chipleading Harrison Gimbel had a fairly good advantage when the final table kicked off, but he couldn't get past fourth place. Paur just outlasted him, finishing third, and Jesse Rockowitz had the runner-up finish. Here's how the final table paid out:
|1||Ravee Mathi Sundar||$266,857|
The next stop for the WPT is Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown and PokerNews Canada will be back with daily recaps of the action with special attention on the Canadian competitors.
