Tyrone Davis, who has worked at Saba Capital for a month, made it to the final table at the Take ‘Em to School charity poker tournament early Friday morning at Gotham Hall in Manhattan.

By that point, the 21-year-old, who started playing poker as a student at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, had outlasted hundreds of players, including David Einhorn of Greenlight Capital, Mo Grimeh of Point72 and his own boss, Boaz Weinstein.
