Akenhead makes Poker Million final

James Akenhead
The Poker Million marks James Akenhead's third major final table in just the last few months.

November Niner James Akenhead has made yet another final table and Full Tilt Poker is offering its players a chance to join him there.

The British Full Tilt Pro, who will come into the final table of the 2009 World Series of Poker Main Event next month as the shortest stack, recently finished ninth in the WSOP Europe main event.

Now, Akenhead has made the final of Poker Million, a made-for-TV event sponsored by Full Tilt.

"I've watched previous Poker Million's on television, so to get to the final table in my first appearance is something I'm proud of," Akenhead said. "It's the biggest tournament of this structure I've ever played in."

Akenhead's run to the final included knocking out Tom "durrrr" Dwan and Antonio Esfandiari along the way.

Those who will join him in the final include Juha Helppi, Full Tilt's Dag Martin Mikkelsen, Cardrunners' co-founder Taylor Caby and Peter Vasiliou, a travel consultant from London who qualified online at Full Tilt.

UK nosebleed stakes loudmouth Luke "FullFlush" Schwartz will come into the final table with the chip lead.

The seventh and last spot in the final can still be won online at Full Tilt Poker through the site's Poker Million - Last Chance 5000 FTP point freeroll on Nov. 22, where the winner will bypass the heats and semi-finals going directly onto the final table.

The Poker Million final will take place in December and air live Sky Sports TV.
