Poker is King Tonight

It’s all over tonight. In a few hours, we’ll know the holder of the most prestigious poker title in the world.. when the Main Event Champion for 2011 is crowned in the World Series of Poker. A field of more than 6800 players, each laying out $10,000 to compete in poker’s biggest championship… is now down to three. The chip leader is Pius Heinz, a 22 year old from Germany (107,800,000 chips). Then it’s American superstar Ben Lamb (55,400,000). And finally, Martin Staszko of the Czech Republic (42,700,000). Of course, the prize pool is off the scale. The “disappointed” third place finisher collects about 4 million dollars… for second place, it’s  around 5.4 million. And to the Main Event Champion… 8.7 million fisheroos. You could win the Masters, The Kentucky Derby and the Daytona 500 in the same year…. and not have $8.7 Million.  Yikes. Catch the Final Table action tonight on ESPN.
