On to WPT Championship TV Final Table with 1.33 Million

by Shannon Shorr |  Published: Apr 25, '09

I'm on to the televised 6 handed final table of the WPT Championship. I limped through with 1.33 million. We'll play 60/120 (15k) for 16 minutes before bumping it up to 80/160 (15k). Note that I actually do have 1.33M and not 1.13M as reported earlier by a couple of the sites. I'll have just 11 BBs to start the day which is obv a dangerous place to be. Hopefully I can quickly double though and get right back in the hunt. I'm flying my family out tomorrow morning so they can be a part of this with me. I've had an amazing time playing poker this tournament, and it's an experience that I will never forget. I am the shortstack, but I am optimistic, and I still envision myself winning the tournament. The final table: Seat 1 -- Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier -- 5,955,000 Seat 2 -- Scotty Nguyen -- 3,275,000 Seat 3 -- Shannon "BLUFFforRENT" Shorr -- 1,330,000 Seat 4 -- Yevgeniy "Jovial Gent" Timoshenko -- 13,300,000 Seat 5 -- Christian "charder30" Harder -- 7,425,000 Seat 6 -- Ran Azor - 2,525,000 The payouts: 1 $2,149,960 2 $1,446,265 3 $776,245 4 $571,965 5 $408,550 6 $285,985 It's really nice to have locked up close to $300k already, but that honestly hasn't really set in yet and there is still so much to play for. Thanks to everyone for all of the emails, texts, facebook messages and calls. It means the world to me to have that kind of support.  SS
