Final Table Results
The final table was still not official when the last nine players returned at Level 24 in order to test each other’s skills and luck and skills. The first player to hit the rail was Paul Strohm who comes from Kansas City, Mo. Strohm managed to win a total of $11,634. It wasn’t long before another player, Gil George, hit the rail, winning $14,692.
The next one to lose all their chips was Brent Barfield, who wanted to catch a hand but failed to do so. After getting pocket jacks, he was pretty sure that the hand was his and decided to go all-in, only to stumble upon Albert Morrow’s cowboys. Therefore, Barfield had to hit the rail as well, winning a total of $18,810 along the way.
Level 26 was pretty exciting as three players managed to lose all their chips during that time frame, the first of them being Ravi Raghavan, who managed to lose his entire stack bit by bit until he had nothing left. The player from Northbrook, Ill., managed to win a total of $24,458.
The next one in line was Jerod Smith from St. Louis, who managed to win $32,271. He was soon followed by Edward Dixon, a player from Detroit, who managed to snatch a total of $43,198, leaving the three best players to compete for the final prize.
After Morrow hit the rail in third place, winning $58,653, he left Ioakimides and Hall in heads-up play. Although Hall had a great chip advantage at the start, Ioakimides managed to double up on the first hand of play.
Nevertheless, he was not so lucky in the end and eventually lost the game, coming in second for a total of $80,761. He was close to winning his second gold ring but will have to wait for another tournament in order to take a shot at it.
