There are only 5 more players between Quinn and the WPT title. The remaining players are to play down to a champion today at 4 pm local time. Eric Afriat is the other player, who headlines the final table. He is believed to be a fearsome player as he is to take a seat at the WPT final table not for the first time.

Day 4 of the WPT Fall Classic Main Event is already in the history. Anticipation is building at Playground Poker Club in Montreal as the Main Event is coming to its closing stage. The final Day 5 of the event is to commence today in the afternoon. Action is expected to be fierce as the long-coveted WPT trophy and the first-place prize of C$403,570 are waiting for their new owner.

Patrick Quinn Vies First-Career Title

Patrick Quinn leads the finalists, bringing 6.415 million in chips to the final table. Alex Keating was the first victim of Quinnโ€™s hot run and the first to leave the poker arena. Keating succumbed in 16th place. Later on, Quinn finished off Curt Kohlberg, who hit the rail in 11th place. By the time the final table was set, Quinn had the second-largest stack. At that point, Maxime Heroux was the chip leader, but not for long.

Quinn worked his way into the top position to lead the pack of survivors into closing Day 5. The player, in fact, is a poker newbie, but he performed with a professional zeal. He told reporters at the end of the day that he expected more intense pressure during the day.

Brady Hinnegan was the first player to leave the final table. Mohammad Abu-Hadbah was the next player to exit the game. The last player to leave the table before the clock announced the end of the day was Bradley Ellis. He was knocked out in 7th place. Brendan Baksh will be shortest coming in with 940,000, just behind Eric Afriatโ€™s 1,040,000. As it can be recalled, Afriat started out Day 4 as the chip leader, but eventually he started to run out of steam. His stack was getting smaller and smaller during the day, but he secured a place among the players, who are marching into the final day of the event.
