The Final Table of the 2009 World Series of Poker Main Event

The 2009 WSOP (world series of poker) main event final table is a week away and the crew of ESPN is preparing for this big poker event. ESPN's Senior Director of Programming, Doug White, said that they are very excited about 2009 WSOP main event final table and they expect it to be even better than last year.

ESPN World Series of Poker coverage co-host Lon McEachern said that when it comes to poker drama, it all begins with one of the best poker players in the circuit having a shot at winning the most coveted poker championship. McEachern said that he is very excited about the performance of Phil Ivey in the final table and hopes that he will surpass all expectations.

McEachern also believes that young but experienced poker player Eric Buchman, who will come into the 2009 WSOP main event final table 2nd in total chips, also have the chance to win the title. McEachern said that Jeff Shulman, the editor of CardPlayer Magazine is a solid poker player and considered a very dangerous presence at the final table.

Co-host Norman Chad said that he was very impressed with twenty-one year old Joe Cada's composure and maturity on the poker table as he aims to surpass 2008 World Series of Poker main event champion Peter Eastgate as the youngest poker player to ever win the WSOP main event title and although French Everest Poker qualifier Antoine Saout is the poker player that he knows the least about, Chad said that he would not count Saout out.

Chad said that poker pro Steven Begleiter know how to effectively use the big chip stack that he is bring to the WSOP main event final table. McEachern said that while he is very impressed with the results achieved by Kevin Schaffel since the summer and Chad said that he is impressed with James Akenhead's aggressive style both WSOP commentators seemed focus on the two biggest stories in the tournament-Phil Ivey and chip leader Darvin Moon from Maryland.

McEachern said that Moon is the second best thing that happened in the final table and believes that as the unknown in the final table, Moon could be most dangerous poker player in the field. But Chad is still making Phil Ivey the favorite among the final table members because Ivey just does thing a little better compared with anyone else. The WSOP main event final table will play down to the heads-up showdown on November 7th, 2009 and the new WSOP main event champion will be crowned on November 9th, 2009.
