Posted by noonlion: 6 players in their 20's.
Only one non-american.
Pretty balanced table for everyone concerned.
Yet again no big name players anywhere near the money.
a few good, well known players cashed(not much, but still cashed) antonio esfandiari and daniel negreanu to name just two. ive heard of michael esposito before today aswell. yeah he's not that well known but he's been around for a while now so should have the advantage of experience behind him.
im glad they have reduced the time you have to wait for the final table. i still dont have a clue why they dont just play it a week later or so.
you would be gutted if you were on an amazing run to get to the final table, feeling good, full of confidence then went on a down swing right before the final table started a few months later.
good luck to those guys anyway. must be an amazing feeling to get a seat on the final table of the main event.

Such a shame none of the women managed to get to the final table.. I was rooting for both Elisabeth Hille and Gaelle Baumann to reach the November Nine (or October Nine this year?!). Would have been fun to watch when ESPN starts translating the event on TV!

Jesse Sylvia has more 14M chips than the 2nd place Andras Koroknair, wow. That’s a nice and confortable margin for a first place at a final table, taking in consideration that there are five players at the table with less 20M chips, which means he can easily attack half the table field without running big risks. If i was him, i would only play monsters til someone gets ahead of me. After that, i could reconsider the strategy.
