On Saturday it's finally time for 2009 WSOP Main Event final table, and it's these 9 players who are going to fight for the first prize of $8.5 million and the World Champion title.

Darvin Moon - 58,930,000
Eric Buchman - 34,800,000
Steven Begleiter - 29,885,000
Jeff Shulman - 19,580,000
Joseph Cada - 13,215,000
Kevin Schaffel - 12,390,000
Phil Ivey - 9,765,000
Antoine Saout - 9,500,000
James Akenhead - 6,800,000

For a long time it has been possible to bet money on the November 9 finalists. Lowest odds are on Darvin Moon who has almost double the stack than Erik Buchan on second place. However, according to polls on different poker forums, Phil Ivey is the one people believe will take home the tournament, and some previous WSOP champs thinks the same...

The WSOP crew recently asked previous WSOP winners who they think will win the final table. Most of them kept Ivey and Buchman as big favorites, when a few of them thought that Moon's huge chip lead will give him the win.

Doyle Brunson's money is on Moon
Doyle Brunson had Phil Ivey and Jeff Schulman as favorites to win, until Daniel Negreanu came into the picture with a prop bet.

"Well, I thought I would be pulling for Phil Ivey and Jeff Shulman at the WSOP final table. But when Daniel wanted to bet Ivey over Moon, I had to take Moon who has 5 times the chips of Ivey. It is a must-win bet so probably we won't have action. Sorry Phil, I won't be rooting for you now. Business is business."; Doyle Brunson writes in his blog.

At KickOffPoker it's possible to bet on the November 9 finalists. Here are the odds:

Darvin Moon  - 3.80
Eric Buchman - 4.85
Steven Begleiter - 7.00
Phil Ivey - 7.50
Jeff Shulman - 7.50
Joseph Cada - 15.00
Kevin Schaffel - 15.00
James Akenhead - 20.00
Antoine Saout - 20.00

awesome... nice to see IVEY made it...but i really hope Moon wins it... he has the best shot at it and it's always nice to see someone new winning it... it makes poker so much more interesting when you see non pros winning

He might be short-stacked but Ivey's still going to be in with a big shot, blinds are starring at 120k/240k with 30k antes so he's going to have 40BBs, which isn't really that short-stacked at all. The Bookies clearly aren't writing him off either @ 7.5! even tho he only has about 5% of the chips. It will be interesting too see what happens anyway, that's for sure.

My faith is on Phill, I want him for the first place.
