Tournament of Champions

The 27 player Tournament of Champions was designed for a number of reasons, and one of the major issues was how to run the tournament without interfering with the rest of the World Series of Poker schedule. The idea tournament officials settled upon was to have two 4-hour days of play. This would create the final table of 9 players and then reconvene on July 4th to finish the tournament and crown a champion.

Well, after the two days of play there was a problem: 17 players, not 9, were still remaining! So, after a lot of debate tournament officials and players have decided upon a long day of play on July 4th; all 17 players will return at 10am on July 4th and play until a champion is crowned.

Here is a look at how the remaining players have fared, and how the event has shaped up so far:

1. Mike Matusow – 85,500
2. Huck Seed – 73,000
3. Johnny Chan – 68,600
4. Scotty Nguyen – 64,700
5. Joe Hachem – 64,300
6. Erik Seidel – 58,900
7. Allen Cunningham – 58,900
8. Phil Hellmuth – 44,100
9. Annie Duke – 42,600
10. Daniel Negreanu – 39,900
11. T.J. Cloutier – 38,800
12. Jennifer Harman – 34,200
13. Howard Lederer – 30,800
14. Chris Ferguson – 30,100
15. Barry Greenstein – 29,900
16. Antonio Esfandiari – 24,200
17. Bertrand Grospellier – 21,400
