November 9 Countdown - 1 day: James Akenhead

Posted on 06 November 2009 by "T".

James Akenhead, from England, is a 26 years old Full Tilt PRO who will start the final table tomorrow with the least chips of the 9 remaining players. James hasn't been playing poker for a very long, but he has still been very successful and won over $800,000 online and live so far. At the 2008 World Series of Poker, he finished second in event #2 ($1,500 NL Texas Hold'em). With other words, he's not a newbie when it comes to playing in the World Series.

James will only bring 6,800,000 chips with him to the final table on Saturday, and he will need to double up at least 2 times quite fast in order to have some kind of chance of becoming the World Champion.

The 2009 WSOP final table is only 1 day away folks! Don't forget to vote for your favorite to win in our "Who will become the World Champion"-poll.

don't think he has any chance, he's fairly shortstacked and not playing much poker too, but who knows....
ppl surely don't like Buchman here only 6 votes, Confused

I would love for James to win this thing, he's a great player, but the fact is he's very shortstacked so his only hope is for some quick double up/triple ups before the blinds get him so he atleast has some chips to work with. But my money is on Ivey (even tho moon is likely). He's been getting bad cards pretty much all the way through so if he starts catching something & doubles up then he's right back in this & guna be a big problem.

Yeah Don't know why that is . I voted for him anyway, I think he'll play solid tight poker all the way through, and with such a big stack he's a great chance I feel.

Difficult to do something with that chip disadvantage. He needs to double up quite early to have a shot at the first places.

Sorry James, Phill is who's going to win it..

Not so many chances for him but all can always happen.
Guess who will be the first one out of the final table ?
Yes, right answer.

I agree

Phil went out in 7th.

It is heads up between Cada and Moon. Cada has double the chips of Moon.
