Ten-Handed Final Table
It took just about six hours of play to trim this field from 119 entries down to a final table of ten. Here's the remaining lineup:
Seat 1: Jordan Henegar - 77,000
Seat 2: Richard Fitzgerald - 29,000
Seat 3: Daniel Hendriks - 132,000
Seat 4: Jesse Capps - 20,500
Seat 5: Ron Hansen - 125,000
Seat 6: Alex Prok - 138,500
Seat 7: Brenda Threadgill - 204,000
Seat 8: Bruce Jaffe - 109,000
Seat 9: Ian Steinman - 98,000
Seat 10: Peter Nowak - 308,500
Fitzgerald is the only one at the table with a previous Circuit win on his record. Steinman is a particularly accomplished player, too, though. He made a WSOP final table this past summer, and he was the 2016 WSOP.com Player of the Year under his alias ApokerJoker2.
Blinds are 2,500/5,000 with a 500 ante in the current level, putting the average stack close to 24 big blinds. That's a respectable number for an event with a structure this brisk.
Everyone left is guaranteed to earn at least $746 this evening, but they're all chasing the gold ring and the top prize of $10,709. Play will continue until a winner is determined.
