Benyamine leads WPT Championship final table

Hellmuth finishes 7th

by , Apr 24, 2010 | 10:25 am

The longest day of the $25,000 WPT World Championship at the Bellagio took place on Friday, as the remaining 10 players took their sweet time getting down to the televised final table of six. When play finally ended, it was Full Tilt Pro David Benyamine who was the chip leader by just 5,000 chips over David Williams, who eliminated an extremely short stacked Phil Hellmuth in 7th place. Video of that final hand appears below, thanks to a company called All360Poker, which has been filming select tables during the WPT World Championship, including yesterday’s table. It’s a 360-degree camera that shows the entire table, and allows the viewer to click within the image to select a different POV of the action around the table.

    Indeed that “interactive” video player is pretty cool; however I had to take it down, kevmth, because it was autoplaying, pokerati couldn’t load without turning it on.

    here’s the embed code below if anyone wants to try and turn it off.

    note to new new-media companies:

    embed and forced autoplay do not work together. don’t get view-greedy.
