World Series Of Poker Event One Final Table Dominated By Pros
The World Series of Poker is nearing the end of its first event. The $10,000 buy in, Pot-Limit Hold'em event began play on Friday, and early on, the pros were making it known they were here to win.
Many times amateurs will surprise the pros in these tournaments, but so far in event one, that has not been the case. The final table reads as a who's who of pro players.
The current chip leader at the final table is no stranger to big events. Andy Bloch has over two million chips as he tries to secure himself the first bracelet of this year's WSOP.
Mike Sexton, another big time pro, is sitting in the three position in chips. He currently has 1,130,000. Mike Sowers has been playing well, but recently lost a pot and 25,000 of his chips.
The lone lady at the final table is Kathy Liebert. She has played well throughout the tournament, but will have to step up her game if she is going to win. She currently is in ninth in the chip count, with only 285,000.
Patrik Antonius was the chip leader at various points of the tournament, but he is now sliding fast. He only has 230,000 chips, the lowest total on the table. Phil Laak is still lurking, holding 425,000 chips, and has plenty of experience to draw upon in trying to win event number one.
Event one is not the only tournament going on right now. Event two, a $1,500 buy in, No Limit Hold'em tournament began on Saturday. On Monday, events three and four will begin, a $1,500 Pot-Limit Hold'em and a $5,000 Mixed Hold'em tournaments.
