John Juanda second at EPT London final table
Monday, 4 October 2010
The record-breaking 848-strong field at the 2010 PokerStars European Poker Tour London Main Event has been whittled down to just eight players; leading the chip counts are a double WCOOP winner and none other than WSOPE 2008 winner John Juanda.
Kyle Bowker holds the chip lead over Juanda by the slimmest of margins, his 7.165m just good enough to top the Full Tilter’s 7.075m. Bowker was the first ever player to win double WCOOP titles online and got his chips largely at the expense of aptly-named Chance Kormouth. Juanda chipped up steadily throughout the day.
Also in the hunt at the final table, albeit on the shorter stack of 1.48m, is Tom “kingsofcards” Marchese – the online cash game pro plays up to the dizzying heights of the $500/$1,000 game on Full Tilt so he certainly has the poker capabilities to ride his shorter stack all the way to the £900,000 first prize.
The final table lines up as follows:
Seat 1 - David Vamplew, UK, 3,670,000
Seat 2 - Tom Marchese, USA, 1,480,000
Seat 3 - Fernando Brito, Portugal, 1,100,000
Seat 4 - Per Ummer, Cyprus, 1,245,000
Seat 5 - Artur Wasek, Poland, 2,250,000
Seat 6 - Kayvan Payman, Canada, 1,295,000
Seat 7 - Kyle Bowker, USA, 7,165,000
Seat 8 - John Juanda, USA, 7,075,000
