World Series Of Poker Main Event Final Table One Month Away

October 6th, 2010 – by Glen Farmer

Though there are many major poker tournaments running around the world, including the World Series of Poker Circuit, the European Poker Tour, and the World Poker Tour, none are as anticipated as the Main Event of the 2010 World Series of Poker. With just 31 days remaining, the November Nine will soon convene to finalize the WSOP Main Event.

While the Main Event is being televised on ESPN, it has not yet finished. Nine players still remain, and these November Nine have caused a stir amongst poker fans. One lucky player will walk home with almost $9 million in prize money, as well as the most prestigious bracelet that the World Series of Poker has to offer.

Second and third place will also receive substantial prizes, but battling through over 7,300 people to fall one or two places short of victory is mind boggling to even the most relaxed of players. A prize of $5.5 million and $4.1 million await the second and third place winners.

Going into the final table, Jonathan Duhamel is leading the pack. Holding 65,975,000 chips, Duhamel is essentially in the position Darvin Moon held last year. Behind him is John Dolan, with 46,250,000 chips. Most eyes are on Michael Mizrachi, one of the few professional players sitting at the final table.

Mizrachi, like Phil Ivey from the previous year, holds seventh place. Mizrachi had proven widely successful throughout the course o the event, and he is hoping to pull through and take down his second bracelet. Mizrachi, depending on his finishing position, could become the highest paid tournament winner of all time.

The event will recommence on November 75h, 2010. Play is expected to only last one day, and will finish out one of the highest prizepools in WSOP history.

Satellites for the next WSOP are expected to soon commence through USA poker rooms.
