WSOP: Final Table down to 2 players

Tags: Craig Marquis, Dennis Phillips, Ivan Demidov, Kelly Kim, Peter Eastgate, Scott Montgomery, WSOP 2008, WSOP 2008 final table, WSOP main event.
Posted on Monday, November 10, 2008 by "T".

After 117 days of long waiting, the WSOP (Maint Event) final table was finally about to take place. Millions of people around the world were about to see 9 players (who already were guranteed $900,670 each) fight for the 1st place and the titile "WORLD CHAMPION".

Chip count as the final table begun:

Seat 1: Dennis Phillips - 26,295,000
Seat 2: Craig Marquis - 10,210,000
Seat 3: Ylon Schwartz - 12,525,000
Seat 4: Scott Montgomery - 19,690,000
Seat 5: Darus Suharto - 12,520,000
Seat 6: David 'Chino' Rheem - 10,230,000
Seat 7: Ivan Demidov - 24,400,000
Seat 8: Kelly Kim - 2,620,000
Seat 9: Peter Eastgate - 18,375,000


9th place ($900,670) - Craig Marquis
First to leave the tournament was Craig Marquis who went all in with 77 on a 10-A-7-J-K board against Montgomery's AQ.

8th place ($1,288,217) - Kelly Kim
Kim went out the very next hand as he was forced to move all-in with his last chips on the big blind (200/400k)

7th place ($1,772,650) - David 'Chino' Rheem
Nothing went Chino's way this day and he finally decided to move all-in with AK and got called by Eastgate's with AQ. A queen landed on the flop and Chino was eliminated after a blank turn/river.

6th place ($2,418,562) - Darus Suharto
Darus went all-in with A8 and got called by Montgomery who hit the nut flush on the turn with AQ.

5th place ($3,096,768) - Scott Montgomery
The most sick elimination in the tournament so far was Montgomery himself who already took out 2 players. He went all-in with a pair of aces on the flop versus Eastgate's pocket sixes who hit his 3-of-a-kind on the river.

What makes this hand so sick is that Phillips folded his hand which included a 6 preflop. This means that Eastgate only had 1 out!

4th place ($3,774,974) - Ylon Schwartz
Eastgate took out Ylon Schwartz with a fullhouse (fives full of king) versus Ylon's A10.

3rd place ($4,517,773) - Dennis Phillips
Phillips tried a bluff-raise on the flop, but Easgate saw through the bluff and called Phillips with his bottom set which stood up to the river.


Now the WSOP Final table is down to 2 players, Peter Eastgate from Denmark and Ivan Demidov from Russia.

Peter Eastgate is the chip leader (79,500,000) at the moment and have the chance not only to win the tournament, but also to break Phil Hellmuth's record as the youngest Main Event winner ever.

 

 

 

Ivan Demidov have 57,725,000 chips left and will be on the dealer button when hand number 170 beginns today at 10:00AM PST, or 19:00PM CET.

go sk.soul >.<
 medvedev11/10/2008 12:52:05 PM GMT
+1. Go russian! We are the best! A year ago everybody who made the final table got a million. Are the prizes smaller this time?
 intentcity411/10/2008 12:56:52 PM GMT
could someone clear something up for me, i think the winner of the tourny will get around 12mil, what did joe hachim win when he won over 50mil.
 medvedev11/10/2008 1:16:28 PM GMT
What 50 million are you talking about? 12 million was last time on the main event. And now it couldn't just grow up to 50 lol
 jevo11/10/2008 1:18:17 PM GMT
Joe Hachem won 7.5mil when he won the main event. The winner of this years will earn 9.1mil.

The prize money is always proportionate to the amount of buy ins. This years is the second biggest ever, with the biggest being Jamie Golds 2006 win of 12mil - although he had to give half of it away to the guy who bankrolled him for the tourny.

I don't suppose BRM would like to bankroll me for the 2009 wsop? I'll offer you 60%-40% with a garanteed cash or your money back (or me skipping the country Smile

Eastgate has been too lucky...
I should not have favourite player ( because I am not from USA either from Russia too ), but I hope Demidov will be the winer, just for a matter of justice !!!!!

Well Peter Eastgate has been running hot at the last stages but don't forget how Russia 4bet AI 99 IP and got called by Rheems TT (dominated) and sucked out my favourite player. If he had not sucked out he would have been out, he had 80% chance of going home with the over aggressive 99's.
All players get lucky and all players get unlucky so it's hard to find the justified winner. Poker is not about justice but about skill and luck which both players have imo.

Can't wait for the HU Smile

Will this one last longer than the battle between Juanda and Aljechin in London? Both players are deep enough to play real poker. Smile
 Bangbonus11/10/2008 10:42:50 PM GMT
go denmark - see you when you come home.
 zirafa7311/10/2008 10:49:54 PM GMT

Peter Eastgate for history, he has a big chance to break Hellmuth record of the youngest ... to win the ... Event & that is insane for a young player in life taking more then $9 ... home Thumbs Up
 shokaku11/11/2008 10:43:25 AM GMT
Eastgate just took it down. After allready down to under 20 Million Demidov lost with his 2pair against Eastgates wheel. Phil H. can't be pleased. Blink
 MANUEDO11/11/2008 12:49:18 PM GMT
Ok M3turbo, your reasons made me think.
Maybe both of them had the lucky hand at the right moment.
Now I'm writing after Eastgate victory and I say only congratulations to him
