World Poker Tour Legends Of Poker Tourney Down To Three Players

The World Series of Poker has come and gone, and left not much action for casual poker fans to get excited about. The World Poker Tour has filled the void over the past weekend with the Legends of Poker tournament taking place in California.

Some of the biggest names in the game traveled to the Bicycle Casino in Bell Gardens, California. Over 750 players entered the tournament, and the weekend proved to be a grueling stretch of play, with many of the top names being sent to the rail earlier than expected.

By Monday, the final table had been reached and on Tuesday, those nine players started to face off against each other for the top prize of over $700,000. It may not be the big money that is given away at the main event of the WSOP, but it is still enough for these players to leave it all on the table.

Coming into the final table, Will Failla was the player that fans were keeping their eye on. Failla had built a decent chip stack, and it appeared as though he was set to breeze through. That almost never is the case in competitive poker, however, and soon enough, other player started attacking Failla's stack.

With the tournament now down to Failla, with 8,600,000 chips, Jeff Vertes, holding 4,675,000, and Ken Aldridge, the chip leader, at 10,750,000, the players are left to deal with high blinds and dwindling chip stacks. The three way play will go on until one player is knocked out, and heads-up play will continue until a champion is crowned.

After the Legends of Poker event, fans and players will again shift their focus back to the WSOP. The November Nine left Las Vegas last month with the hopes of perfecting their strategies before returning to Sin City in November. The nine players will then play down until one of them becomes the winner of the largest single tournament prize in the game today.

Over $8 million will be awarded to the winner, but that will pale in comparison to the amount of prestige the player will enjoy. Past winners of the main event have parlayed their championship run into successful marketing plans and professional playing careers.
