WSOP 2012 Final Latest Results: Just Three Remain

WSOP 2012 Final Latest Results: Just Three RemainAfter a 103 day break, the October Nine returned  to Las Vegas on Monday to move a step closer to determining the 2012 WSOP Main Event Champion. Play began at 4:51pm PST and by 12:13am PST we had our final three players, who will now return to the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino at 5:45pm Tuesday for the $10k WSOP Main Event conclusion.
First player to exit the competition was WSOP bracelet winner Steve Gee, 57, who shoved his pocket eights on a 7-5-4-J-3 board. Russell Thomas called with Q-Q and so Gee bowed out in 9th for $745,798.
Next out was Robert Salaburu, 27, who was dealt pocket sevens in the big blind and decided to call Jesse Sylvia’s (Q-5) small blind shove. Sylvia then caught a Q on the river to eliminate Salaburu in 8th for $971,360.
Michael Esposito, 43, is an amateur player from New York and he fell in 7th ($1,258,040) after re-raising all-in with A-J into the A-K of Greg Merson.
Then it was the turn of lone non-US player Andras Koroknai, 30, to depart in 6th ($1,640,902), after an aggressive move which saw him six-bet shoving his Kh-Qd only to be picked-off by Greg Merson holding As-Ks.
At the start of the final table, Jeremy Ausmus, 32, was the short-stack on 33bb but with five players remaining his lucky run finally came to a halt. Ausmus (10-7) was check-raised on a 9-8-3-3 board only to then move all-in for his remaining 14.5m chips. However, he still had outs against Jesse Sylvia’s A-9 but with a 5 landing on the river Ausmus had to settle for a 5th place finish worth $2,155,313.
Amateur poker player Russell Thomas, 24, was then dispatched to the ral in 4th ($2,851,537), after getting it all-in pre-flop with his A-9 badly dominated by Jake Balsiger’s A-K, and so after seven and a half hours of play the final table took an overnight break.
The three remaining finalist will now return to the arena at 5:45pm today to complete their battle. Blinds are at 300k/600k and a 75k ante, and the players will line-up as follows:
Greg Merson 88,350,000
Jesse Sylvia 62,750,000
Jake Balsiger 46,875,000
