Day 4 of the World Poker Tour Borgata Open was just completed, leaving us with the final table of six that will be returning to battle it out for the title later tonight. It started with 36 players and took a very long session to see 30 of them eliminated to establish that illustrious final table.
The day finished up with Cong Pham still leading the event with 10,190,000 chips, but he has PokerStars Team Pro Vanessa Selbst on 7,910,000 behind him and looking very hungry for another poker title.
Wheeeee final table tomorrow!!! Bagged up 7.9MM which is good for 2nd place I believe.

We now have the six finalists that will be going all at it later on tonight to earn an $825,099 payday and of course grab themselves a WPT title. Those Who Fell We had to lose thirty players in total today and among the more notable players that could not quite make that final table were Cliff Josephy, Jake Schwartz, Alex Rocha and final table bubble boy Dan Howe.

21st place. Jumping off the Borgata. Played pretty poorly today so variance finally caught up I guess. Good luck @THE_ALEX_ROCHA
