Sam Greenwood Leads 12 Players into partypoker Caribbean Poker Party $5,300 MILLIONS Main Event Final Day

Canadian poker pro Sam Greenwood made two final table appearances in the partypoker-sponsored Caribbean Poker Party within a couple of days and is poised to appear at the final table of one more tournament. The player finished Day 4 of the ongoing $5,300 Main Event as the chip leader with significant advantage over his remaining 11 fellow competitors.

Led by Greenwood, the tournament’s twelve survivors are set to return today at the host venue Meliá Caribe Tropical in Punta Cana, the Dominican Republic, and to play down to a champion. The last man standing will receive the amount of $1 million. Bearing this in mind, we could only expect fierce competition and quality poker action from all twelve players who will certainly be vying for the title.

The remaining players will first have to set the official eight-handed final table and then continue battling up until a winner is determined. Here it is also important to note that each of the twelve hopefuls is guaranteed a payout of $42,000.

Greenwood has been running particularly good in this year’s Caribbean Poker Party. As mentioned above, the player made two final table appearances in several days. He first finished third in the $10,300 High Roller and then finished runner-up to Chris Hunichen in the $25,500 Super High Roller. The player now has the chance to improve to a top position in the Main Event.

How Greenwood Scooped the Commanding Chip Lead

The Canadian poker pro performed quite well on Day 4 of the tournament and managed to built a nice chip stack over the course of action. He actually captured the chip lead on the very last hand played for the night. He went all-in in a confrontation against Norway’s Preben Stokkan, who was the chip leader at the time. The board gave Greenwood a nut flush to secure him with a massive pot and the overnight chip lead.

The player will enter the final day of play with 193.9 million in chips and with massive advantage over the rest of the survivors. Norway’s Jonas Gjelstad collected the second largest stack last night, which totaled 117.7 million in chips. Czech Republic’s Jiri Horak will begin Day 5 play third in chips with 104.5 million.

It is interesting to note that despite the massive blow he suffered on the last hand in play last night, Stokkan is still well-positioned for the title. The player will enter the final day action fourth in chips with 99 million. Stokkan will be vying for his second title within the Caribbean Poker Party festival. He was crowned the victor of the $10,300 High Roller Greenwood finished third in. The Norwegian poker player collected his best live cash of $275,000 for taking down the exciting tournament.

Notables like Jason Koon and Felipe Ramos are also still in contention and ready to return to the host venue for the final day of the Main Event. Action is scheduled to resume at noon local time.
