After losing two players in an exciting three way action-hand of omaha - and then another player straight after - the final table has been set. And what a final table it is!
In a three way all-in after a flop of Kc Jd 8d, Mats Gavatin took out both Allie Prescott and Michel Abecassis, who take home £6,521 and £7,643 for their respective 13th and 12th place finishes. The turn card brought another diamond and Gavatin's nut flush was good to take the pot. Soon after, Dino Brivati busted in 11th for £7,643 after Men Nguyen hit two pair on the river in a round of hold'em. Plenty of exciting names on this table with plenty of exciting achievements:Note: * 6-time WSOP bracelet winner Men 'the master' Nguyen* 2-time WSOP bracelet winner and WPT title holder, Hoyt Corkins* 2-time WSOP bracelet winner and UK pro, Chris Bjorin* 2-time WSOP bracelet winner and 2 WPT titles, Howard Lederer* WPT title holder Erik Cajelais* 2009 GUKPT Luton winner Richard Gryko* 2005 EPT Irish Winter Tournament winner Mats Gavatin*7th place finisher of 2008 WSOPE Main Event, UK pro Robin KestonSeat 1: Ian Frazer -- 169,500Seat 2: Men Nguyen -- 164,200Seat 3: Chris Bjorin -- 98,000Seat 4: Mats Gavatin -- 282,000Seat 5: Hoyt Corkins -- 53,200Seat 6: Howard Lederer -- 94,300Seat 7: Robin Keston -- 56,700Seat 8: Richard Gryko -- 164,300Seat 9: Erik Cajelais -- 95,000
