With 6 Left Still No Lock At WSOP Europe Event #1, But There Is A Laak
September 15, 2021
The first event of the 2010 World Series of Poker Europe, the £2,650 buy-in, six-handed No-Limit Hold 'em, is down to the final table, and Phil “The Unabomber” Laak is just one of the recognizable names still in the hunt for the prestigious bracelet. 

Joining Laak at the 6-person final table will also be London’s own Chris Bjorin and Toledo’s David Peters, who is no doubt anxious to best his earlier runner-up finish in Event #54 at the most recent WSOP in Las Vegas.

After a short 2nd day of play, that spelled the end to such pros as Jeffrey Lisandro (29th), Liv Boeree (16th- £7,350) and Praz Bansi (12th- £9,608), fan favorite Laak once again finds himself deep in the money and in contention for a major title, a position he should be getting use to after deep runs this month in both the Partouche Poker Tour Grand Final and the English Poker Open.  In those events, Laak just missed the final tables, making this opportunity- especially given his current third place chip stack- his best yet, but first he’ll have to get past some very talented players, including a chip leader who currently holds nearly double his stack.

The chip counts for the final table of Event #1 of the 2010 WSOP Europe, the Six-Handed No-Limit Hold ‘em, are as follows:

Andrew Pantling- 627,500

Chris Bjorin- 368,500

Phil Laak- 317,000

David Peters- 251,500

Rouah Ilan- 200,000

Willie Tann- 72,000

The final table of Event #1 will begin tomorrow in London’s Casino at the Empire at 2:00 p.m. local time.  For updates and chip counts from that final table, or to read more on what went down today, visit powered by PokerNews.
