Phil will bank $637,254 for the win and it truly was William Thorsson will start the final nine as chip leader with Ray Dehkharghani within range right behind him. They are at 8,000/15,000 right now and with the lowest stack sitting around $95,000 it's still anybody's game.
Other than that, they are down to 99 in the $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em Event 19 that kicked off earlier in the day. Some short stack got his Aces cracked on the money bubble and they'll play down to the final nine on Tuesday with the always entertaining and often annoying Mike Matusow right in the thick of it.
Event 20, the $2,000 Seven-Card Stud Hi-Lo Eight-or-Better event also got started and Day 1 ended with a leader board full of big names. Consensus 2006 WSOP Player of the Year Jeff Madsen, 2004 Main Event Winner Greg Raymer, Five Time WSOP Bracelet Winner Ted Forrest and WSOP Bracelet Holder Annie Duke are all in the top ten chasing 2006 WSOP Omaha Hi-Low Bracelet Winner Jack Zwerner, who holds the lead with 136 players left.
There's some serious action headed your way on Day 12 as long as Harrah's doesn't find another way to hide it from you.
