Event#13 - $1k No Limit Hold'em final table set

Wednesday, 9 June 2010

The original field of 3,023 runners who started the latest $1k No Limit Hold'em event has been whittled down to a final table of nine with American David Baker holding the chip lead.

Andy Black was highly fancied going into Day 3 but the 'Mad Monk' eventually perished in 32nd place for a $10,923 payday. Britons Chris Brammer and Daniel Carter also had very deep runs but couldn't quite manage to last the day.

Irish hopes rest with Andrew Heather who currently sits in fourth place on the leader board. Joining the Dubliner at the final table is online legend Jared "TheWacoKidd" Hamby who lies seventh in chips. All nine remaining players are guaranteed at least $35,290 but will have their eyes on the first prize of $472,479.

The final table chip counts are as follows:

1.David Baker - 2,553,000
2.Matt Vance - 1,731,000
3.Steve Gee - 1,540,000
4.Nicholas Heather - 993,00
5.Kyung Han - 613,000
6.Daniel Thomas - 602,000
7.Jared Hamby - 425,000
8.Mats Gavatin - 393,000
9.Jeff Gross - 281,000
