Final Table Underway At WSOPE 2010 Main Event

The starting field of 346 hopefuls who entered the WSOP Europe Main Event 2010 has now been reduced to just 9 players, each hoping to claim the prestigious WSOP bracelet and the £830,401 ($1.31m) first place prize as their own.
Yesterday poker fans were still hoping to see Phil Ivey or Viktor “Isildur1” Blom at the final table but the celebrity pros were unable to make further ground and were sent to the rail along with Greg Mueller, Hoyt Corkins, Barney Boatman, Andrew Pantling, and Arnaud Mattern.
However, the final table still promises plenty of excitement and with the most experienced of the remaining nine players being British, there is still a good prospect of seeing our first home grown champion in the event.
Roland de Wolfe (31), leads the British contingent with almost $5 million in live tournament wins, including a WSOP, WPT and EPT title to his name. James Bord presents the lesser threat at this point with just $79,074 in career winnings but all that could change with a good result today.
France is represented by Nicholas Levi who boasts $765,805 in career winnings over just 2 years, and Marc Inizan who also has won a respectable $588,592 over his three year career.
Fabrizio Baldassari is the lone Italian at the table and has yet to make his mark on the tournament circuit up until now with just $47,541 in winnings. He is also the short stack at the table and will need a good start to keep his tournament hopes alive.
The USA has managed to get four of its players through to the final in the guise of Dan Fleyshman, Ronald Lee, Dan Steinberg and Brian Powell. With the first three names mentioned in order of big stacks at the final table, few would bet against USA picking up yet another bracelet at the Main Event.
With the WSOPE Main Event resuming at 12 Noon today, and the blinds starting at 10k/20k and a 3K ante, the player’s current positions are as follows:
Dan Fleyshman – 1.946 million
Ronald Lee – 1.899 million
Dan Steinberg – 1.52 million
Roland de Wolfe – 1.377 million
James Bord – 1.331 million
Brian Powell – 842k
Fabrizio Baldassari – 697k
Nicolas Levi – 428k
Marc Inizan – 349k
