At exactly 3 p.m. last Sunday Bruce Buffer, world famous presenter started the final table of this year's biggest poker event: The WSOP final table. The Las Vegas Rio Casino was full by this time, many poker celebrites were present in the crowd, such as Barry Greenstein, Mike Matusow, Tom Marchese, Sorel Mizzi, Carter King, J.C. Tran, Nam Le, Karina Jett, and of course the whole Mizrachi family.

Seat 1: Jason Senti - 7.625.000
Seat 2: Joseph Cheong - 23.525.000

Soon the only European player at the table, Filippo Candio went all-in pre-flop against the chip leader Jonathan Duhamel. Candio doubled up with his pocket rockets against Duhamel's A-K on a neutral board.

The next to stand up was Matthew Jarvis, who went all-in preflop, with Mizrachi calling. Jarvis showed pocket 9s, Mizrachi A-Q. The board came Q-8-Q-9-A, giving Mizrachi a higher full, eliminating Jarvis.

Mizrachi soon became the chip leader as he continued to play well, he seemed as a candidate for the final heads-up.

Senti also tried to collect chips desparately, but his end was near: he raised, got reraised by Cheong to 4,950,000, when he went all-in, Cheong called. Senti showed his A-K, Cheong pocket tens. The board came K-K-Q-J-9, which was unfortunate for Senti, who flopped a set, but was beat by Cheong's straigth on the river. Senti stood up at 7th place.

Soon John Dolan, who quickly fell to the shortstack zone joined him, he went all-in from the small blind, Duhamel called from the big blind. Dolan's Q-5 couldn't improve on a neutral board against Duhamel's pocket 4s, he was out in 6th place.

The Grinder also faced his fate when he ran into Duhamel, who limped with his pocket aces. They soon were all-in, Duhamel's trap worked, Mizrachi's third queen didn't come and he was out.

Three hands later Candio went pre-flop all-in from the big blind, Cheong insta-called. Cheong won the hand with straight against Candio's K high.
