Bay 101 WPT final table


After a marathon session at the Bay 101 casino, the WPT final table was finally reached earlier today and among the finalist you find the 11 times WSOP bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth. The Bay 101 tournament has a reputation for being one of the hardest tournaments on the World Poker Tour and this year was no different. Although many of the remaining poker stars were eliminated during play yesterday, you fund 9 players with big results among the last 27 remaining players, but as play resumes for the title and $878.500 only two poker stars remain.

Hellmuth at the final table

As mentioned, the Poker Brat Phil Hellmuth managed to get to the final table, where the 11 times WSOP winner will be going for his first WPT title. He already has two WPT final tables finishing 6th in 2008 at the L.A. Poker Classic and finishing 3rd back in 2003 at World Poker Finals in Mashantucket, but he never won one of the prestigious titles. Phil will surely be ready, as he must be hungry for his first win and to make up for his first loosing year ever in 2009. The Poker Brat will start the final table in second chip position and will be very hard to beat. But before he can win the title, he has to go through a tough field including Hasan Habib, who also has two WPT final tables to his result list. The Pakistani born player has won more than $4.4 million in his carrier, including one WSOP bracelet back in 2004. Worth mentioning is also that both his final tables was made at the WPT Championship with $25.000 buy in and one of the toughest fields in the world.

It will be very interesting to follow these two great players at final table in their quest for their first win in a WPT event. The other players will get a hard time controlling the table, but fortunately for them Hasan is fairly short stacked and will need a double through early on. On other hand Phil is in great position to win as he has done so many times before at WSOP and is surely the favorite going in.
