WSOP 2011 - Just 45 left in final $1,000 NL Hold'em event

Tuesday, 5 July 2011

The $1,000 NL event – the last of the 2011 WSOP – has been narrowed down to just 45 players from a near-record 4,576 field. The fast and furious Day 2 saw close to 600 players eliminated at a breakneck rate with names hitting the rail including Jeff Madsen, Terrence Chan and Martin Jacobson.

Among the leaders of the last 45 players in contention is Stanislav Alekhin whom you may recognise as “The Antibomber”, who played and lost the longest final table in WSOP history at the WSOPE 2008 when John Juanda secured the bracelet. He currently sits in second place behind Anibol Andres with over 700,000 in chips.

All remaining players are guaranteed a $13,000 return on their $1,000 investment but all eyes are on the final table, where payouts begin at $53,333 and climb the dizzying heights up to over $680,000 for first place – plus bracelet.
