Final Table Underway At 2010 EPT London

The final table has just got underway at the 2010 EPT London, where the remaining eight players are all vying for a chance to take away the prestigious title, as well as the £900,000 first place prize.
The £5,250 buy-in tournament managed to attract a record 848 strong field to this year’s event to produce the largest poker tournament ever held in Britain.
Most of the big name pros entered the tournament and five days later one of the biggest names in the game still remains in the guise of poker superstar John Juanda.
The 39 year old pro originally from Indonesian is currently on 7.075 million in chips and practically tied as chip leader with Kyle Bowker on 7.165 million. Considering between them they hold more than half the chips in play, it is no wonder Juanda has been made the bookies favourite to clinch the title.
John Juanda is by far the most successful player remaining and with 4 WSOP bracelets and  $10,519,678 in live tournament winnings to his credit, brings a vast store of experience to the final table.
US pro Kyle Bowker, however, will be looking to stop Juanda from capturing a first EPT title while also providing a massive boost to his current $844,028 in live tournament winnings.
The other six players hoping to make their mark at the final table include David Vamplew, UK, (3.67 million), Tom Marchese, USA, (1.48 million), Fernando Brito, Portugal (1.1 million), Per Ummer, Cyprus (1.245 million), Artur Wasek, Poland (2.25 million), and Kayvan Payman, Canada, (1.295 million).
With the final table getting underway on 40k/80k blinds and a 5k ante, there will immediately be a tremendous amount of pressure exerted on the remaining players, and there will likely be plenty of fireworks right from the start.
After UK’s James Bord took down the WSOPE Main Event 2010 last week in London, the home crowd will be lending their support to lone Brit at the table David Vamplew, who on 3.67 million in chips has a lot more room to bide his time than some of his fellow competitors.
