A late night in Vegas ..........

Finally, after 15 hours play on day 7 of the WSOP Final event, we have our final table and what will become known as the "November Nine".

After a good nights sleep, these players can get busy talking to sponsors and signing some lucrative contracts to go along with the $32m, they are already playing for at the table. All are guaranteed prize money of at least 900k, with the winner taking home over $9m. They are ....

Dennis Phillips - 26.295,000 in chips
Craig Marquis - 10,210,000
Ylon Schwartz - 12,525,000
Scott Montgomery - 19,690,000
Darus Suharto - 12,520,000
David 'Chino' Rheem - 10,230,000
Ivan Demidov - 24,400,000
Kelly Kim - 2,620,000
Peter Eastgate - 18,375,000

Tenth place finisher was Dean Hamrick, who took home $591,869 and it is not everyday, that you can feel sympathy for someone that has just won nearly $600k !

Blinds are 120k-240k, with 30k antes, so Kelly Kim will have to get busy very quickly .

Back later.
