Here's a final table with a real mix of players for you. Recognised pros, online prodigies, and a Dane with a ton of chips. What a bloody surprise.
The Dane isn't Gus Hansen though, but countryman Theo Jorgensen. A solid pro who has had success on the European Poker Tour, he will prove to be a tricky player to get chips out of, one suspects.Of course, we like to think of glorious wins for the big name players, which is why we - along with several others - will be egging on Chris 'Jesus' Ferguson to take it home. Jesus is placed in the middle of the pack with 282,000 and the coolest haircut at the final table. He narrowly misses out on the coolest shades award, which goes to Max PescatoriHere's the seating and chip counts, for those of you who care less about the eyewear and more about Harrington's Ms and Qs.Seat 1: Erik Friberg - 189,000Seat 2: David Penly - 162,000Seat 3: Jason Mercier - 650,000Seat 4: Sorel Mizzi - 290,000Seat 5: Tomi Nyback - 434,000Seat 6: Theo Jorgensen - 897,000Seat 7: Max Pescatori - 126,000Seat 8: Eric Dalby - 277,000Seat 9: Chris Ferguson - 282,000
