WSOPE Main Event Final Table Filled with Champions

The final table of the 2009 World Series of Poker Main Event has been decided and boy is it going to be a nail biter! The majority of the players to compete at the final table are previous bracelet winners and two are set to compete at the final table of the WSOP Main Event when it returns in November. Competition is definitely going to be tough when play resumes tomorrow.

Jason Mercier is leading the pack with just over 3 million chips and has a European Poker Tour win under his belt. He was able to eliminate six of the last fifteen players who went home today. James Akenhead and Antoine Saout, both of which will be at the final table of the WSOP come November, will be returning tomorrow to compete at the WSOPE main event final table as well. Saout is sixth in chips while Akenhead sits second in chips right under Mercier.

Daniel Negreanu, Matt Hawrilenko, Praz Bansi, Chris Bjorin and Barry Shulman are the other bracelet winners in contention to take the WSOPE Main Event bracelet. Interesting enough, Barry Shulman is the father of Jeff Shulman, another November Niner.

The final table will reconvene on Thursday at 2pm BST. Below is a list of all the players returning to compete for the Main Event bracelet as well as their chip counts.
