Update Day 8: WSOP 2010 Main Event Final Table Set

Update Day 8: WSOP 2010 Main Event Final Table SetAfter more than 15 hours of intense action on Day 8 of the tournament, the final table of the 2010 WSOP Main Event has been set with the remaining nine players now on a much needed break until November later this year.
At the start of the day 27 hopefuls were vying for a chance to become one of the “November Nine,” but within 30 minutes Johnny Lodden had become the first player to have his hopes dashed after going all-in with pocket 8’s against  Matt Affleck’s A-10, with a 10 then falling on the turn.
Other players to earn the same payout of $317,166 as Lodden for finishing in the 27th to 19th place bracket, were Matthew Bucaric (26th), Mads Wissing (25th), Ronnie Bardah (24th), Robert Pisano (23rd), William Thorson (22nd), Redmond Lee (21st), Patrik Eskander (20th), and Michael Sijpkens (19th).
The 28-year-old Scott Clements from Washington was next to be eliminated in 18th place with David Baker (17th) and Benjamin Statz (16th), also collecting $396,967 for their deep run in the tournament.
With 15 competitors still left in the tournament, the players went on a dinner break with Matt Affleck the first man out after play had resumed. Affleck’s pocket aces lost to Duhamel’s pocket jacks, after they completed a straight on a T-9-7-Q-8 board. Other players also collecting $500,165 were Hasan Habib in 14th and Duy Le in 13th place.
With the final nine places getting ever close, Micheal Mizrachi managed a much needed double up to 5.2 million chips with pocket kings against John Racener K-J, to keep his tournament hopes alive. Soon after, Adam Levy was knocked out in 12th ($635,011) after  moving all-in under the gun with K-Q for his last four million chips, only to run into Jonathan Duhamel’s pocket aces.  
With the elimination of Canadian Pascal LeFrancois in 11th ($635,011) holding Qs-Js to Cheong’s pocket kings, just one place remained seperating the players from a date with destiny at the final table of the prestigious event.
The unfortunate player to finish just short of WSOP glory was Brandon Steven, who bid goodbye to his 2010 WSOP Main Event dreams after being knocked out in 10th ($635,011).
The remaining nine players are all now guaranteed a minimum of $811,823 and include Johnathan Duhamel,John Dolan ,Joseph Cheong, John Racener, Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi, Soi Nguyen, Filippo Candio, Matthew Jarvis and Jason Senti.
