WSOP 2014 Main Event - Final Table of Nine Decided
As reported last week, there was only one day's play left before the final table of nine was decided, to go forwards to November's WSOP Main Event Final Table. It was Sweden's Martin Jacobson who led the way with 27 players remaining from the original field of 6,683, and although he made it onto the final table, he lost his lead during the last day's play and ended up in eighth place.
When play recommences on November 10 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, leading the field will be Dutchman Jorryt van Hoof, who has 38.375 million in chips. Van Hoof is not a big name in the world of poker, although he won the 2013 Utrecht Series of Poker in his native land.
The main "known name" on the final table as well as Jacobson is Mark Newhouse, who was ninth in last year's WSOP Main Event, and has made over $2.7 million playing poker. The other participants will include Spain's Andoni Larrabe, Brazilian Bruno Politano, plus Dan Sindelar and William Tonking from the USA. Completing the field are two complete unknowns, William Pappaconstantinou (USA) and Felix Stephensen (Norway).
The final table chip count is as follows:
1 Jorryt van Hood (Netherlands) 38.375M
2 Felix Stephensen (Norway) 32.775M
3 Mark Newhouse (USA) 26M
4 Andoni Larrabe (Spain) 22.55M
5 Dan Sindelar (USA) 21.2M
6 William Pappaconstantinou (USA) 17.5M
7 William Tonking (USA) 15.05M
8 Martin Jacobson (Sweden) 14.9M
9 Bruno Politano (Brazil) 12.125M
