2014 WSOP Final Table: Just Three Players Remain

On Monday, November 10th, the nine remaining players at this year’s WSOP Main Event came off their 4 month break and returned to the action at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. By the end of the day’s play just three hopefuls remained, and will now take an overnight rest ready to play down to an eventual winner later today.
At the 2013 WSOP Main Event, Mark Newhouse was eliminated in 9th place for $733,224, and this year the US pro was once again the first player to have his hopes dashed at the final table. In the hand in question, Newhouse’s 10-10 was beaten by William Tonking with Q-Q, and subsequently collected $730,725 after hitting the rail in 9th.
Next to go was Brazil’s Bruno Politano, who started the day as the shortest stack, and saw his chips dwindle further before pushing all-in preflop with Q-10. Felix Stephensen made the call with 7-7, and with no help from the board Politano had to settle for an 8th place finish worth $947,077.
Not long later, US pro Dan Sindelar, who had found his chip stack steadily trending downwards, was dealt J-J and decided to 4-bet all-in during a three-way pot involving Felix Stephensen (A-10) and Jorryt van Hoof (Ah-3h). Hoof made the call, and the Ad-7h-2h-3d-Qs board sealed Sindelar’s fate, who was eliminated in 7th place for $1,235,862.
Earlier, Spain’s Andoni Larrabe lost half his stack holding K-Q to the K-K of Billy Pappas, and Larrabe’s tournament eventually came to an end after 3-betting all-in with Jc-10c. Jorryt van Hoof (K-5) made the call, and with no help from the board Larrabe exited in 6th for $1,622,080.
As the final table rolled on, it wasn’t until 2:45am that Billy Pappas lost a coin flip against Martin Jacobson and was left with just one-third of a big blind. The next hand he, too, was eliminated but the world foosball champion at least pocketed $2,143,174 for his 5th place finish.
The final player to be eliminated on the day was then the USA’s last hope William Tonking, who at 3:30am moved all-in preflop with 2-2, only to run into the 10-10 of Martin Jacobson. Soon after Tonking hit the rail in 4th ($2,848,833), and an overnight break was called with just three European players now left at the final table.
Holland’s Jorryt van Hoof (89.62m), Sweden’s Martin Jacobson (64.75m), and Norway’s Felix Stephensen (46.1m) are all guaranteed at least $3,806,402 for making it thus far, but all eye’s will be firmly fixed on securing the $10,000,000 top prize, and the accolade that goes with being crowned a WSOP Main Event champion.
