2010 World Series of Poker- A Glance at the final table

A poker pro, a rising poker star, a wannabe poker stud…..Hey wait!! don’t get me wrong. I am none of these, but definitely one of those who do not wish to miss even a glimpse of the big ‘WORLD POKER SERIES’ each year.

November Nine and the nine players battle for the 2010 WSOP bracelet

7,319 wannabe Poker champs, indeed were seen starting the tournament this year. Left behind are only nine lucky and brilliant masterminds. The total prize pool was one of the largest in history at nearly $68.8 million. This money started being handed out at 747th place. As of right now, the current chip counts the remaining 9 players among which, 6 players are American, 2 Canadians, and 1 Italian.

The nine players with their current chip counts are;

1. Jonathan Duhamel – 65,975,000
2. John Dolan – 46,250,000
3. Joseph Cheong – 23,525,000
4. John Racener – 19,050,000
5. Matthew Jarvis – 16,700,000
6. Filippo Candio – 16,400,000
7. Michael Mizrachi – 14,450,000
8. Soi Nguyen – 9,650,000
9. Jason Senti – 7,625,000

Clearly, from the current numbers, Jonathan Duhamel of Boucherville, Quebec is the current chip leader. He won two huge pots on Day 8 of the WSOP Event and knocked out two players. This left him with nearly a 20 million chip lead over the next closest player, John Dolan.

Another player who has continued to be one of the biggest story lines this year is, Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi. He is the only player left now, who has won a bracelet as he won the $50,000 Player’s Championship, giving him an overwhelming edge in live tournament experience over the rest.

With all this and more happening in the world of Poker, WSOP has become one of the the most awaited events by now. The only thing that I am concerned about is, that me and all the poker lovers will have to wait until November to see a champion crowned…HUH!! But, as its likely said, “Wait & Watch”. So, just pack your curosity and get this November booked for the thrill of ‘2010 WSOP’ main event.
