As the WPT Jacksonville bestbet Open heads into the penultimate day, some of the biggest names in poker still remain in the hunt for a final table with 19 players remaining. While not the most recognizable name in the field, perhaps the most interesting is overnight chip leader Jared Jaffee who was the winner of the last WPT event to be held in Jacksonville (Fall Poker Scramble) and the WPT Champion Club member is hoping his luck holds up to will himself to back-to-back JAX titles.
Right behind him though are former WPT Champion Jordan Cristos and James Calderaro as well as one of the biggest names in tournament poker, Team PokerStars Pro Jason Mercier. Also hoping to double up and find their way to the Final Table Live Stream are notables Faraz Jaka, John Racener and Dan Heimiller.
The $3500 buy-in event saw 258 players enter creating a prizepool of $825,600 and a healthy first place prize of over $206k. The final table will be available to be watched via Live Steam at (around) 12:30pm EST on Tuesday March 25.
Updates and chip counts as they play down to the final 6 are available on the WPT Live Updates page.
