The 2012 WSOP Main Event Final Table is Set!

Posted on 17 July 2012 by "T".

The Main Event attracted 6,598 players (from 82 different countries, aged from 21 to 92) this year. Now, after that Day 1 a b c, Day 2 a b c, Day 3,4,5,6 & 7 have been completed, only 9 players remain and have the chance of winning the gold coveted bracelet and the $8.5 million first-place prize!

Jesse Sylvia, 26, will be carrying the chip lead (43,875,000) over the next three-plus months as the final table this year will be played October 28-30. When the final table kicks off, Jesses's closest opponent will be Andras Koroknai, 30, from Hungary with 29,375,000. Koroknai is the only non-U.S. player on the final table. It will be interesting to see how it will affect his game.

Now you might wonder what happened to the Day 6 chip leader Marc Ladouceur and the last 2 standing women in the tournament, Gaelle Baumann from France and Elisabeth Hille from Norway. Ladouceur, from Canada, hit the rail already in 13th place ($465,159)-  even though he had about 3 million more than his closest opponent when Day 7 started. And unfortunately we won't have any women on this year's final table as Hille finished in 11th place ($590,442) and Baumann was then eliminated in 10th place for $590,442 after losing an all-in with A9 against Koroknai's AJ.

Below is the final table lineup. We will be back with more information about the finalists later this week.

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.. Sad 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.

aye it's a shame there's no big names at the ft as they're usually more vocal,i hate a quiet table but maybe there's someone there who will make up for that, mind you as long as it's a good game eh.
