The pseudo-final table

This is one of those ironies of the televised poker generation. We're down to one table in the real world, with ten seats around it, but in television land there are only eight places.

That means we need to lose two players from the pseudo-final table before we get to the final table proper, the one that the viewers will see.

Those ten are these, in seating order:

1 - Ram Vaswani (Eng) - 1,160,000
2 - Isabelle Mercier (Can) - 152,000
3 - Brian Gilbert (Eng) - 410,000
4 - Mark Boudewijn (Hol) - 870,000
5 - Kirill Gerasimov (Rus) - 100,000
6 - Stuart Nash (Eng) 100,000
7 - Patric Martensson (Swe) - 220,000
8 - Micky Wernick (Eng) 160,000
9 - Theo Jorgensen (Den) - 840,000
10 - Mats Iremark (Swe) - 360,000
