Star-filled final table of Five Diamond World Poker Classic
Five Diamond World Poker Classic, james dempsey, vanessa selbst, wpt.
Posted on 12 December 2011 by "T".
The final table of Five Diamond World Poker Classic was probably one of the most interesting World Poker Tour final tables this year since both Antonio Esfandiari and Vanessa Selbst were on it. But unfortunately Esfandiari, who won the tournament last year had the chance to take home his 3rd WPT title, didn't do so well on the final table and was eliminated already in 6th place. Selbst did better though and she was doing well until there were only 3 players left. Then everything came to an end when she lost an all in with K9 versus James Dempsey's A9.
When the heads-up between Soi Nguyen and James Dempsey was 41 hands old, they very dead even in chips. Then they continued to battle back and forth over the course of more than 80 hands of heads-up action. Nguyen then took the lead after winning a few big hands, but Dempsey started playing better and also managed to double up through Nguyen and take a big lead. Nguyen needed to double up quickly to stay in the game. It didn't take long before both players were all in.
The flop came J96 and put Nguyen in the lead, and Nguyen remained out front with the 4 on the turn. However, the river card 10 was a terrible card for Nguyen since Dempsey got a straight. For the win James Dempsey received $821,612 and a seat worth $25,5k in the WPT World Championship. Nguyen got $517,478 for his second place.
Final table results:
1st: James Dempsey - $821,612 (includes $25,500 WPT World Championship seat)
2nd: Soi Nguyen - $517,478
3rd: Vanessa Selbst - $338,351
4th: Andrew Lichtenberger - $218,933
5th: Vitor Coelho - $159,224
6th: Antonio Esfandiari - $119,418

| With the two big names of last year away from the race, Dempsey and Nguyen should have felt a big releif, besides the work they still had in front of them. And, by the way, what a nice river for Dempsey, something that he wil never forget. As for Nguyen, it was the only card he didn't wanted to see in the table... oh well, maybe next time.|

| Sometimes you hit a big pair on the flop and on the turn and the river you hope not to see one of the outs of your opponent.That is all in the game, variance.|

Oh well it shouldn't surprise you. She is very agressive and hard to read, wich is all u need to win MTTs
I think she won over 3 millions in one year also, so she definetly knows where the cash is... at the final table

| is why I love poker, always with great emotion and nothing better than hand not so much to decide the championship turnaround, the final table full of great players regardless of who won was in good hands|
