WSOP, 2011-07-20, by Ozone

The 2011 World Series of Poker Main Event has played down to nine lucky finalists from its original starting field of 6,865 hopefuls. These nine will come back to Las Vegas in November to compete for a first place payday of $8.7 million.

Seven different countries are represented among the nine finalists, making it the most globally diverse WSOP Main Event final table in history. Here are the lucky players, their chip counts, and native country.

Martin Staszko - Czech Republic - 40,175,000
Eoghan O'Dea - Ireland - 33,925,000
Matt Giannetti - USA - 24,750,000
Phil Collins - USA - 23,875,000
Ben Lamb - USA - 20,875,000
Badih Bounahra - Belize - 19,700,000
Pius Heinz - Germany - 16,425,000
Anton Makievskyi - Ukraine - 13,825,000
Samuel Holden - England - 12,375,000

The final table will resume on November 5th at Rio in Las Vegas. All finalists are guaranteed a payout of $782,000 while the top eight are ensured a seven-figure score.

For Ben Lamb, making the final table was just the icing on the cake to a great summer; he leads WSOP Player of the Year standings after 1st place, 2nd place, and 8th place finishes from earlier in the series.
