Poker Commentator Jeff Platt finishes 4th in WSOP Event #43 for $160,662!
All eyes were on well-known PokerGo host and poker commentator Jeff Platt, who made the final day of Event #43: $1,000 Double Stack No-Limit Hold’em sitting 9th in chips with only 17 players left.
WSOP bracelet winner Michael Wang started Day 4 as massive chip leader with almost twice as many chips as Joshua Harrison in second place.
Although there were two more bracelet winners left with Sejin Park and Jonathan Dokler, the biggest name left in the field for once was not a poker pro, but a poker journalist with Jeff Platt.
Jeff started the final day in 9th place and he had an absolute dream start and even took over the chip lead. With eight players left Jeff was still among the big stacks sitting in 3rd.
When play got shorter, so did Platt. After Frank Lagodich busted in 5th, the GGPoker host pushed All-In with A9 and was called by David Guay with KJ. King on the flop, no help from the board and Jeff Platt was eliminated in 4th place for a whopping $160,662.
Out in fourth. What an incredible ride. Will get back to y’all later but just wanted to say THANK YOU for all the support. Genuinely touched by all the encouragement. Much love

Incredible showing by the poker commentator, who made all poker journalists proud. Congratulations Jeff!
It was cash game player Anthony Denove, who won the tournament and the whopping $446,983 first place prize by defeating Canadian pro David Guay heads-up.
