WSOP Final Table Notes

by , Nov 11, 2008 | 1:03 am

More than two hours into heads-up play, most of the crowd remains in their seats, despite discovering how slow and uneventful live poker can be at times. Some other points of interest:

~From the time the final table began yesterday, this just turned into the longest WSOP main event final table in history, beating out the 14-hour 2005 table which went to Joe Hachem.

~Dennis Phillips and Darus Suharto are in the audience to sweat their former opponents and see this thing come to a conclusion.

~Reportedly, Erick Lindgren’s name was misspelled on his engraved Harley.

~Demidov came on strong tonight by evening up the chip stacks, but within the last hour, Eastgate not only regained his lead but became the first player to leap over the 100 million chip mark. Demidov just dipped below the 30 million mark and can’t seem to find a spot to make a comeback…yet.

    Is this in terms of actual play, or just the duration of the event itself, taking into account delayed starts and such?

    I think it’s from the actual start, not counting the delayed starts.

    So only “action” time? Your answer confuses me more. No offense … my question is confusing. Go coffee!

    Not sure. Will have to look into it. I’m just going on the basic info that Jack Effel gave us over the mic.

    I’m thinking it is as he says it is … and that says something about the heads-up when there’s another break like there was between yesterday and today. I kinda like that they get to rest and theoretically play better.
