As you probably know, if you are in love with poker, last week, it was the WSOP series. So, the atmosphere was quite stressful when the games arrived at the paid places, 7319 players and only 747 among them will return to their home with a reward.
The end of the series are over with the qualification of 9 of them for the fantastic final that will take place in Las Vegas in November for the new season of Poker.
This is the list of the qualified players:
Jonathan Duhamel(65,975,000) (Canada)
John Racener (19,050,000) (USA)
John Dolan (46,250,000) (USA)
Matthew Jarvis (16,700,000) (Canada)
Soi Nguyen(9,650,000) (USA)
Filippo Candido (16,400,000) (Italie)
Jason Senti (7,625,000 de jetons) (USA)
Michael Mizrachi (14,450,000) (USA)
So as you can observe, 6 of them are Americans, 2 Canadians and 1 Italian. In this kind of tournament, Americans are quite good and it is their culture, so, don’t be so frustrated if you can’t see more Europeans at this tournament.
On Saturday, there was just 27 players left at 12 pm and only 9 places for the final table. The last day finished on Sunday actually and it was very impressive to see such a long poker day.
One of the finalists, Jonathan Duhamel, is probably the one who will win the final in November. On Sunday, he eliminated 3 players in a row with just amazing game. For the last elimination, Jonathan Duhamel received a straight on the river and he was playing all in against an American who got a pocket ACES. They were all in and Jonathan didn’t know at the time that he will get a straight, it was just unbelievable. Jonathan will be the cheap leader in November with a pot of $66 millions.
Most of the players got their invitation through Internet and the only one that will be very dangerous would be the American Michael Mizrachi, who is the only one with experience and who already won a bracelet during one of the SWOP final.
This final is promised of a lot of surprise, some will proctect their position and some would like to become the chips leader. An event that you can’t miss , so be with us for the biggest event of poker in the world.
The rewards for the WSOP final will be the following:
1st: 8,944,138 dollars
A total of $ 29,032,637, that is just amazing. Nevertheless, in my opinion, with amount for me it is just a little bit crazy especially in our economic system but Casinos and Poker are here to bring to you some dreams and realise the impossible! So, the good thing is that most of them used to play poker online, that is means that I have a chance maybe one day to finish in one of these incredible tournament and why not you too!
