Tuesday, 30 June 2009

The 95-runner field that entered the $50K HORSE event has been whittled down to a final table of eight. Heading the chip count is Swedish online pro Erik Sagstrom with over 3.65m in chips. Joining him at the final table will be Vitaliy Lunkin, David Bach, John Hanson, Huck Seed, Chau Giang, Erik Seidel and Ville Wahlbeck.

The unfortunate Gus Hansen was the final table bubble boy. 2007 champion Freddy Deeb made the money again, busting out in 14th place. Britain’s John Kabbaj continued his fantastic run sneaking into the final money spot for a payout of $72,914.

The eventual winner will take home a prize of $1,276,000 as well as the Chip Reese Trophy. Play on the final table resumes at 10pm today UK time.
