WSOP Final Table 2010 Youngest And Most Aggressive In History

The last few years of the WSOP Main Event has witnessed a dramatic fall in the age of its champions, with the 2008 victor Peter Eastgate’s record win aged 22 being quickly surpassed by Joe Cada in 2009 aged just 21.
This Saturday’s Main event Final Table is no exception, either, and just as the average age of last year’s finalists was 34, this year’s has further fallen to a mere 26 years old.
In fact, Cuong “Soi” Nguyen at 37 year-old and Michael “Grinder” Mizrachi at 29, are very much the old timers at the table with the remaining seven players ranged between 26 and 22.
Also, considering Nguyen is the only non-pro at the table and is the second shortest stack (9.65 million), there is a good chance the next champion will also be in his twenties.
As ESPN poker commentator Lon McEachern explains: “It’s a decent portrait of where poker is at today. It’s a bunch of young, aggressive players.”
Aggression certainly lies at the heart of the new generation of poker player’s success, and the ability to apply constant pressure to overpower opponents with less than premium hands.
Only recently, in fact, the 48 year-old Scotty Nguyen who beat 350 players to win the WSOP Main Event in 1998 aged 36 commented on the trend and said:
“It is different now because there’s so many different ways that everyone is playing. In the old days, back then everyone played right. Now a lot of people play on luck more than skill, they take more chances.”
One thing for sure is that the upcoming final table jammed packed with young guns will undoubtedly prove an explosive, raucous affair and make for an action packed memorable final. As WSOP vice president Ty Stewart explains:
“We thought that poker and excitement was an oxymoron. But not so at the final table. It’s going to be a wild scene.”
