The WSOP Main Event Final Table all Set

The World Series of Poker in Las Vegas came to an end this week with the final table of the main event being decided, and the November NIne all lined up and ready for a welcome break before they resume later this year to decide the winner. The main event this year was a thriller of a ride with plenty of twists and turns, however now the last 9 players have been decided and the wait begins. From a massive field of 6,352 players from a total of 83 different countries we are down to the final 9 who will battle it out for the number 1 prize in the poker world and the huge cash amount of $8.3 million. The $10,000 buy in event, the 44th to be held saw many players changing for the lead, and some big names of the game running deep and looking good, however the end result is a final table that does not include any of the huge names in poker, with probably the most recognizable player being J.C Tran, however there are some seriously good players in the mix who have plenty of big tournament wins to their names.

The Players who Return in November

The final day saw 27 players enter the fray and when former champion Carlos Mortensen finished in 10th place we were good to go. The final 9 and the chip counts are...

  • Sylvain Loosli 19,600,000
  • Michiel Brummelhuis 11,275,000
  • Mark Newhouse 7,350,000
  • Ryan Riess 28,875,000
  • Amir Lehavot 29,700,000
  • Marco-Etienne McLaughlin 26,525,000
  • J C Tran 38,000,000
  • David Benefield 6,375,000
  • Jay Farber 25,975,000

As you can see, leading the way is J.C Tran but that stands for little as there is still a long way to go and much can happen. Amir Lehavot is an experienced player and already owns a WSOP bracelet and Mark Newhouse is a WPT winner so Tran knows that he still has plenty of work to do. The final table resumes on Monday 4th November and play will continue until we have just the 3 players left who will play for the number one spot, the cash and the WSOP Main Event 2013 winners bracelet.
