$25,000 WPT poker championship down to 35 players

Posted by KevinG on Apr 21, 2010 Posted in Poker News | 1 Comment »

WPTWith a smaller than expected turnout –only 195 players registered for the poker tournament–the World Poker Tour Championship event, a $25,000 buy-in tournament taking place at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, is already down to 35 players, with 4 days still to be played.

The remaining 35 hopefuls are a veritable who’s who of the poker world including last year’s winner Yevgeniy Timoshenko, 2007 WPT champion and 2001 WSOP Champion Carlos Mortenen, Chip-leader Shawn Buchanan, Matt ‘mStout’ Stout, Billy Baxter,11-time WSOP bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth, David Williams, David Benyamine, Jason Lester, 1998 WSOP Champion Scotty Nguyen, Brian Lemke, JJ Liu, Cliff “JohnnyBax” Josephy, 2009 COPY Eric Baldwin, David “Devilfish” Ulliott, Josh Arieh, and Tony Cousineau.

Unfortunately for almost half of the remaining players they will walk away with nothing to show for their efforts, since the money bubble doesn’t burst until 18 players are remaining. The top 2 finishers will each become millionaires, with 1st place paying $1.5 million, and 2nd place just over $1 million.

The complete prize-pool can be found below:

1st Place:  $1,530,537
2nd:  $1,034,715
3rd:  $587,906
4th:  $329,228
5th:  $246,921
6th:  $199,888
7th:  $152,856
8th:  $105,823
9th:  $75,252
10th-12th:  $56,439
13th-15th:  $51,736
16th-18th:  $47,033
