Brady Holiman Leads WPT Choctaw Main Event Final Table, Zinno Eyes Fourth Title

Brady Holiman is leading the final table of the WPT Choctaw $3,700 Main Event after building a formidable stack during Day 3 of the tournament. The player is well ahead of his opponents with 10.84 million in chips and Timothy Domboski being his nearest fellow competitor with 5.3 million.

The final day of the tournament is set to be played later today at Choctaw Casino in Durant, Oklahoma. The six remaining players are eyeing a first-place prize of $469,185 and the accolades that come with a WPT Main Event title. Each of the finalists is guaranteed a minimum cash of $95,780, so no one will leave empty-handed.

This will be Holiman’s first cash from the series. And with a guaranteed payout of no less than $95,780, the player will collect the largest cash of his poker career no matter how deep he runs into the tournament. Holiman has prior live tournament earnings of around $42,000.

The chip leader will clash against Domboski, Tony Ruberto, Anthony Zinno, Christopher Smith and Viet Vo on his way to the title. Six-handed action is set to start today at noon local time at the host casinos. The final six will play down to a champion.

Anthony Zinno Takes Aim at Fourth Title

Three-time WPT champ Anthony Zinno headlines the final table of the WPT Choctaw Main Event. If the popular poker pro takes down the major tournament, he will tie with Darren Elias as the winningest player in WPT history with four Main Tour Main Event titles.

However, Zinno has a tough task ahead, as he will enter the final day of the Main Event as the short stack with 2.245 million in chips. Still, being something of a WPT veteran with three titles, 22 cashes, and more than $2.64 million in winning will give him enough confidence to improve his current situation.

Heading into the final day of play, there will be another former WPT champ eyeing one more title from the popular live poker series. One-time WPT Main Event winner Tony Ruberto is the only other title holder to have made it to the final table of the WPT Choctaw Championship. Similarly to Zinno, Ruberto will have quite some work to do on Day 4 as he is position at the bottom and of the temporary leaderboard with 2.675 million in chips. The player previously won the WPT bestbet Jacksonville event during Season X of the series.

Vo is, too, among the accomplished players who are heading into the final day of the WPT Choctaw event. The player has more than $1 million in tournament earnings. He was the chip leader at the end of Day 1A. While he might have given up his position at the top of the leaderboard, he has never lost his momentum over the past several days. Vo is entering Day 4 with 4.77 million.

Christopher Smith was the sixth player to make it into the final stage of WPT Choctaw action. He is about mid-stacked with 4.495 million.
