They started play on this fifth day at Foxwoods just after noon on the East Coast with ten players. Needing just four eliminations, it didn't take long for the first one to fall.
Tom Nguyen was one of the leaders in the middle of Jonathan Little's two overs and just like that, the final six was set.
Jaffe added a few chips to his lead and when the final table goes off sometime around 5 p.m. EST tomorrow, the online phenom and 2008 David Pham got there this time. The Dragon will be looking for his first win coming in on a little over $2 million in chips.
Jonathan Little grabbed his first WPT title at the Mirage Poker Showdown last year on the way to the Season 6 WPT Player of the Year crown and he'll enter his fourth WPT final table looking for another one right with Pham.
Courtesy of that big hand with Matusow, New Yorker Charles Marchese will come in with $1.7 million looking to make a name for himself and a whole boatload of bucks in the process, while young Jack Schanbacher, having torn up the East Coast WPT prelims the last few years, will be right behind him on $1.59 million.
Then, of course, there's The Mouth. Having made two WPT final tables last season, including a heart breaking heads-up loss to Kevin Saul at the Bellagio Cup, this is Matusow's fourth shot at WPT glory. He'll come in the shortest on a little over $800,000, but definitely not out of it.
With this kind of star power, there's little doubt the WPT has delivered yet another final table that's worth watching. In fact, this one's so sick, I think I just threw up in my mouth a little.
A $1.1 million first place prize, a seat at the WPT Season 7 Championship and the chance to be interviewed by PokerListings.com all hangs in the balance tomorrow and even if you get caught up watching the tape-delayed coverage of that other wee little event in Vegas, you can still follow all the Foxwoods World Poker Finals action live right here.
