The latest player to walk the plank away from the 2010 World Series of Poker Main Event final table was John Dolan, from Bonita Springs, FL. He received $1,772,959 in prize money. Dolan was short stacked and moved all-in on a bluff attempt. The bold move failed as Jonathan Duhamel called the raise and won what remained of Dolan’s stack, with pocket fours.
Table play has been aggressive up to this point. However, cards have fallen in a manner which has produced only four eliminations after ten hours of play (minus 90 minutes taken for the dinner break).
Play will continue all night until only two players remain. Last year’s final table (first day) followed a similar pattern and concluded at 5:00 am.
Heads-up play will resume on Monday, November 8th at 8 pm PST when the final two will play down to a winner. Coverage of the final table will air in a two-hour telecast on Tuesday at 10 pm ET on ESPN.
The winner of this year’s Main Event, the second largest in the 40-year history of the WSOP with 7,319 entrants, will take home $8,944,310 in prize money. He will also be presented with the most coveted achievement in all of poker — the World Series of Poker Main Event Championship gold bracelet.
