WSOP ME Final Table
Everything about WSOP is mind-blowing. This year a record 79.471 entries through 62 events were recorded. 6352 of those were Main Event entries generating a prizepool of nearly $60 million and almost a half of that, $26 million will be shared among Top 9 that remain.
9 players representing 5 countries and $8.359,531 to the winner. Are you ready?
Throughout the history of WSOP the event was taken down by chip leaders as well as the shortest stacks so it’s all to play for. But the man who is considered a favorite has the most experience as well as the most chips – poker pro JC Tran. He’s 36 year old, two-time Gold bracelet winner has 38 million chips.
Mid-stacks are Amir Lehavot, Ryan Ries, Marc-Etienne McLaughlin and Jay Farber. All of them have 25-29 million chips. Lehavot has a Gold bracelet to his name, McLaughlin finished 30th in ME in 2009 and Ries has 3 WSOP cashes. Only Farber, 28-year old VIP host is an amateur who plays poker only as a hobby.
Sylvain Loosli is a French poker pro with 19.6 million chips. Even though he mostly plays online, he will be forced to be reckoned with. Just like his names suggests, he plays loosely and fearlessly.
Among the shortest stacks is Michael Brummelhuis, Mark Newhouse and David Benefield. Newhouse( 6 WSOP cashes), Brummelhuis (7 WSOP cashes) and Benefield (12 WSOP cashes) are real veterans here. Although, they will need a lot of skill and luck to reach the top.
The event is about to start. Take your seats, pick your favorite and let the best man win.
