Wassup '09: Event #23 Final Table Set, Sung And Wahlbeck Go For Two
June 12, 2021

There are only ten players left in the $10,000 buy-in, World Series of Poker, No-Limit 2-7 Draw Lowball World Championship and remarkably of those 10 players, 2 have already won WSOP bracelets in 2009. 

Both Ville Wahlbeck and PokerRoad's Steve Sung are among those last ten players standing and shockingly both have a real shot at taking on Josh Brock Parker for 2009 WSOP Player of the Year, if either one just can get through these final few players.

Unfortunately, that is easier said than done, as today's final ten make up perhaps the toughest group we've seen assembled for a WSOP final day thus far and includes Nick Schulman, David Benyamine, John Juanda, Roland de Wolfe and Justin "BoostedJ" Smith.

The chip counts for the final ten of the WSOP $10k World Championship of No-Limit 2-7 draw Lowball are as follows:

Vince Musso- 765,500
Ville Wahlbeck- 481,000
John Juanda- 387,000
Nick Schulman- 300,000
Archie Karas- 264,500
Steve Sung- 212,500
David Benyamine- 139,000
Justin Smith- 122,500
Michael Binger- 108,000
Roland De Wolfe- 102,000
