With November upon us, everyone in the poker community knows that it is time for the Main Event Final Table of the current World Series of Poker. The event was back in action this week and after 12 hours of poker gaming, the final table is now down to three remaining players. Those remaining will now be back in action tonight to continue to play to see who the 2014 WSOP Main Event champion will be.
Holding the chip lead going in to tonight is Jorryt van Hoof from the Netherlands. Next is Martin Jacobson of Sweden and following third in chips is Felix Stephensen from Norway. Jacobson commented to the Daily Mail that the event should be a fun battle and he got this far in the event by having patience, a key trait in the game of poker.
The player who makes it to the end and earns the championship win will earn a $10 million prize while second will earn $5.1 million and third earning $3.8 million. The three players were able to outlast six other final table competitors to make the final three.
Finishing in 9th place of the main event yet again this year was Mark Newhouse, who earned the same finish in the 2013 event. Newhouse was up against William Tonking on the final hand, going all in and losing with pocket 10s to Tonking’s pocket Queens. 8th place would go to Bruno Politano who was knowned out by Felix Stephensen on his final hand. The board fell 6-3-2-K-9 and Stephensen’s pocket 7s held up against Politano’s Q-10, sending the pro out in 8th place.
It would be just six hands after Politano’s exit that Daniel Sindelar would be eliminated in 7th place. Sindelar went up against Van Hoof and lost with pocket Jacks to Van Hoof’s A-3 suited hearts when the board fell A-7-2-3-Q. Next to go was Andoni Larrabe who earned the 6th place finish. Larrabe would go all in with J-10 suited clubs and would be called by Van Hoof who held K-5 suited hearts. The board fell K-8-3-8-6 and Larrabe would exit the event.
5th place would go to Billy Pappas when he called an all-in by Martin Jacobson. Pappas held A-J offsuite while Jacobson held pocket 5s. The flop gave Jacobson a 5 and nothing could save Jacobson who would be eliminated in 5th place. Barely missing three way play was William Tonking. The pro was all-in with pocket 2s and was called by Jacobson with pocket 10s. The cards fell J-5-4-6-Q and Tonking would unfortunately be eliminated.
Action begins again tonight and it will be interesting to see who will be able to outlast the competition and become the new WSOP Main Event champion!
