WSOPE 2010: Event #1 Six-Max Final Table Set

Following Day 1 of WSOPE Event #1: £2,500 Six-Max NLHE, in which the starting field of 244 players was reduced down to 31 hopefuls, Day 2 saw the tournament reach the final table of six.
Amongst those players falling just short of their final table aspirations was 12th place finisher Chris Moorman who, by the time he had eventually made it out of bed and to the poker felts, had a third of his stack blinded away.
Other players eliminated on Day 2 included  Liv Boeree (19th), Praz Bansi (11th) and  John Tabatabai in 7th.
On the other hand, the six lucky players who managed to make it all the way to the final table were Andrew Pantling (627,500), Chris Bjorin (368,500), Phil Laak (317,000), David Peters (251,500), Ilan Rouah (200,000) and Willie Tann (72,000).
Andrew Pantling succeeded in taking his Day 1 chip lead all the way to the final table, helped along after being involved in a big hand where he was dealt pocket A’s to Lawrie Inman’s AK.
Swedish pro Chris Bjorin will also be a major force to reckon with and, after lodging his 5th WSOPE cash, will be hoping to add the £170,000 first place prize to his already incredible $5 million live tournament tally.
Of all the finalist, Phil Laak will probably be the most well-known amongst poker fans and will be taking his impressive September form into today’s action. Not only has he guaranteed himself a handsome payout at this year’s event, he also cashed in 15th place at the Partouche Poker Tour main event on Sept 2nd for $65,939, as well as an 18th place finish at the English Poker Open Main Event a week later for $10,491.
The three other players at the table who will have their own designs on the title include online pro David “DavidP17” Peters, Ilan Rouah, and a Willie Tann looking desperately short of chips.
The event will now play down to its exciting conclusion today, when a new WSOPE bracelet winner will be crowned.
