Done for Day; Final Table Set
After returning from dinner the action was non-stop with players getting tossed left and right. The final nine has been decided with no shortage of big name talent in the mix.
Last year's $5k Pot-Limit Hold'em champion Jason Lester will be back to defend his title, adding another final table to his list of WSOP accomplishments.
Gavin Griffin, bracelet holder and this year's EPT Grand Final winner, is going into the final table third in chips.
Jeffrey Lisandro, a regular on the tournament is leading the back with a decisive chip lead.
The ever-outspoken Humberto Brenes will be in effect, along with his trademark sharky card protector, looking to add a third WSOP bracelet to his resume.
Allen Cunningham, a player who needs no introduction but will receive one anyway, is coming into the final table around the middle of the pack. He's one of the most consistent all-around tournament player in the world, card-carrying member of Team FullTilt, owner of four WSOP bracelets and close to $8.5 million in tournament wins, need I go on?

Here is a rundown of the bustifications leading up to the final table:
Sandrock Eroded (10th)
Chris Sandrock managed to make it to the final ten-handed table but was the first one to hit the rail, garnering the title of TV-final-table bubble boy. He moved all-in over the top of a Joe Patrick opener and got an instant call from Patrick. Turning over pocket fives, Sandrock was in need of some serious help to crack Patrick's pocket aces.
The board ran and despite a five hitting on the river, it showed four spades which suited the A♠ in the hand of Joe Patrick nicely. Out in 10th, Sandrock will take $21,512 for his trouble.
Sayanora Seebs (11th)
Joe Sebok, of Chronicles of Sebokia and Battlestar Seblaktica fame, has been eliminated in 11th after nursing a shortstack for the last few levels. He moved in over the top of a Humberto Brenes pre-flop raise with K♥ J♥ and got called by Brenes who had 8-3o. The flop brought both an eight and a three and after the turn missed Seebs he was drawing dead going to the river.
Hauptman Hammered (12th)
Mike Hauptman got all-in with A♥ K♥ but unfortunately ran into the pocket kings of Jeff Lisandro. The flop came all rags with one heart, not much help to Hauptman. Another heart hit the turn though and Mike was looking for an ace or a heart to stay alive. The river missed though, sending him to the rail in 12th with $21,512.
