The 2010 World Series of Poker Europe has seen some good turnouts like in Event #1 which exceeded its cap by 40 players, and some not so great turnouts like Event #2 that saw a substantial decline in attendance from last year. Amazingly, the £10,000 buy-in No Limit Holdem heads-Up tournament attracted a staggering number of participants: 103! And amongst those 103 players were some of the biggest names in poker like Phil Ivey, Daniel Negreanu, Huck Seed, Vanessa Rousso, Tom ‘durrrr’ Dwan, Ilari ‘Ziigmund’ Sahamies and on and on.

As of writing, the final four of the tournament is set, and they will continue to play until a champion is crowned later tonight. The final four players are:

·    Hendon Mob member, and top poker pro Ram Vaswani
·    Online poker phenom Jim ‘Mr_BigQueso’ Collopy
·    Full Tilt Poker pro, and high-stakes poker pro Gus Hansen
·    English poker pro Andrew Feldman
