And that's game, set, and match.
David swung by the tournament table after the winner's ceremony and said several times that from the decision to chop to the final hand were "the worse ten minutes of poker I have ever played."

There are no official "chops" allowed in WSOP Circuit events, however, if I were to say that the final two players are playing for a nice gold ring, I think you get my drift. Or to be more specific (since the players are talking to me) the total first & second place prize is $110,475 and a gold ring. The two remaining players have made a deal to take $50,000 each and play down for the ring and $10,475.

First hand after the break John Minor is all-in with . Het gets the call from Justin Trvesdell with and its JT9 on the flop and the turn 8 gives Justin the straight and John Minor goes out sixth.

Short stack John Minor moves all-in with and gets raised by Matt Dunbar and he is reraised by Moni. Matt calls the all-in and with a monster pot Matt shows and Moni shows a big fat on the river saves John Minor but Matt Dunbar is our 7th place finisher.

John Cobb makes his move with pocket 5s and runs into a big stack big blind call from Moni Advanti with J8o. Jack on the flop and John Cobb is our 8th place finisher.

WOW! Big Daddy flops with his pocket rockets only to be taken down by David Muse, the even bigger chip leader, with a flopped flush. Mark Hanna out in 9th. There may have been some confusion as David is still figuring out the chip colors and amounts. On the turn he called "raise twelve thousand" while he put out 50K in big chips. Once that was sorted out, it went bet, raise, call. And the river bet, all-in, call. I must admit we all had no idea who had what and no one put Big Daddy on pocket aces or Daid on that flopped flush to the King. This was the "hand" of the final table thus far.

After several rounds of blind stealing and six all-ins with no calls, Chris Divish goes out 10th to Moni Advani, when Moni flopped a boat. Chip leader David Muse and "Big Daddy" Mark Hanna are keeping the table hopping with some lively chatter and a bit of singing.

Well they have the final table set up and once again the Caesars has been good to me. I have a table and a seat about 10 feet from the final table and complete access to the playing area. So here we go (pictures will be added later as the set-up here is a bit tight and I might lose the new equipment in the crowd).
