Four players are left on the money bubble, and what a cast it is:

- Phil Ivey 1,418,000
- Daniel Negreanu 1,030,000
- Patrik Antonius 976,000
- Gus Hansen 571,000


Seems like a classic Poker After Dark line-up, doesn't it?

Recent eliminations at the final table are:
5th Sorel Mizzi
6th Winfred Yu
7th Tony Bloom
8th Dan Smith
9th Jason Mercier

Pay-outs are:
1st: $ 2,000,000
2nd: $ 1,200,000
3rd: $ 800,000

These are 4 of the 5 poker players I love watching the most on TV...

Is the table live streamed anywhere with hole cards!?
01-28-2012 , 01:04 PM

5th is close call between Dwan/PH, but I'd take PH with that line-up for purely entertainment purposes. Otherwise it's usually Dwan,you are correct
01-28-2012 , 01:10 PM
DN tops the all-time money list with a win. Not that it means tons with super-high-rollers.
01-28-2012 , 01:14 PM
sick final four. dayummmmm
01-28-2012 , 01:15 PM
Also Gus in position to bubble 2nd 6 figure buy-in tournament this week. :P
01-28-2012 , 01:15 PM
Any idea if this is televised
01-28-2012 , 01:20 PM
This will be part of the televised episodes around July, but no live stream available

also: What would Gus say if he bubbles this one, last week when he bubbled the 100k it was:
Spoiler:
"F*** me in the ass"
01-28-2012 , 01:24 PM
is there any live updates on pokernews? didn't see it when I checked

He's got 15bb, the big stack only 30bb. Man, why is this huge buy-in tourney such a turbo!? Shold be don in 2hrs max, what a bummer.

I'd rather watch those 4 battle it out on the bubble for many, many hours instead of a typical donkament that takes 5-7 daS just to get interesting...

Daniel Negreanu brought up the fact that, from his point of view, this final table is just like those Onyx Cup commercials of when that series was supposed to launch. The players are getting a good laugh at the series and the general consensus seems to be how much of a flop it all was.
from http://www.pokernews.com/live-report...000-challenge/

That's pretty funny considering who they used in their promotional commercial http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UBZNiRXT8nQ


Oh yeah; Gus doubled through Patrik: 88>A7

01-28-2012 , 01:36 PM
Onyx cup.. real funny daniel.
01-28-2012 , 01:37 PM

01-28-2012 , 01:39 PM
Helluva nice table, it's like High Stakes Poker!
01-28-2012 , 01:41 PM

in case you're wondering, that's a second dealer to cut the deck so the players get to see more hands as the levels are passing by fairly quickly
01-28-2012 , 01:49 PM
lol, it's 5am in the morning over there...
01-28-2012 , 01:49 PM
Just action baby!
