Game Highlights
Men take hold of the top 6 positions this season; two of them holding two bracelets a piece, walking into this Season's Final Table. Tim Entwistle and Bob Paura hunting for their third bracelet this season. Ryan Yu, well respected player, earns his way to yet another final table. Ryan contends that the game is all about having fun, but who would'nt want to win their first bracelet? Wouldn't Yu? Also at the final table this Season, making his second appearance in just four seasons, Bryan Dibble on a search and destroy mission. They all however, must deal first with a stranger who's secrets are the best kept in the league; a player sometime's referred to as the "Count" of Thursday night poker (coined from the way he keeps his chip stack piled)... Harry Noren. Noren has played 2 full seasons and has managed to pay for both of them with his winnings, the second season finding himself at the Final Table in 5th place. Dan Pollock, also new to a Final Table, brings up the rear in 6th place.

Dan Pollock finds himself in a big pot with a pair of aces and a king to kick against Bryan Dibble, and moves all in. Dibble hesitates but calls with three 10s and puts Pollock on the rail. Tim Entwistle is next to exit with a pair of 4s against Harry Noren who wins the hand with a pair of jacks. As the blinds get bigger, Dibble moves all in at 11:02PM against Ryan Yu's Ace. Dibble quickly finds that his KQ is no match as Yu hits a 6 high straight and finishes off Dibble in the 4th place. Yu peeks down at AQ and moves all in however Noren is not about to let his AK hit the muck. The board pairs 5s and Noren's AK holds as the best hand. Yu finishes in the 3rd place. Paura and Noren are heads up at 11:15PM. The heads up match would last 15 minutes when Bob Paura moves all in pre flop with A7. Noren has Paura covered and makes the call with Q10. Paura manages to pair his ace, however Noren uses the flopped ace of clubs and 3 other clubs that fall to make an ace high flush that wins Noren the match.
