WSOP 2011 - $1,500 No Limit final table set and halfway done

Tuesday, 14 June 2011

The somewhat controversial ten hour rule at the 2011 WSOP means that after ten hours, play is done for the day regardless of where we are in the tournament. Such is the case at the $1,500 No Limit final table where just six of the final nine remain at the end of Day 3.

Foster Hays leads the way over Casey Kelton and we lost the only recognisable poker name early on when Jordan Young, having built up to a chip lead and lost it again, was eliminated in ninth place. Tomorrow, the six remaining players reconvene at the final table to play down to a winner and a bracelet.

All six have won at least $126,409 which is none too shabby for a $1,500 investment. The first prize is a mind-boggling $735,400 though and comes with the honour of a World Series of Poker bracelet so it’s all to play for.
The final table chip counts are as follows:

1.Foster Hays – 3.62m
2.Casey Kelton – 3.39m
3.Jeffrey Lavelle – 2.14m
4.Robert Koss – 2m
5.Stanley Tavanese – 1.74m
6.Allan Le – 1.32m
7.Tristan Wade [busted] $94,700
8.Philippe Vert [busted] $71,728
9.Jordan Young [busted] $54,936
