2008 World Series: Ramdin shooting for final table
Team PokerStars Pro Victor Ramdin could really use a good finish today.
See, for a lot of the people coming in town for the Main Event, being able to claim one World Series cash in 2008 would be enough. Victor Ramdin already has two cashes this year, but he's not the least bit happy about them. Why? Well, he's stuck.
"Stuck fifty dimes," he said yesterday. "I need to work really hard and I'm hoping I go far."
It's one of those things that happens in a long Series. One tournament turns into another tournament which turns into a cash game. Before long, you're shooting pool with a crazy Scotsman and hoping for the best. Or at least, that's what Ramdin is doing.

He could get it all back with interest today. Ramdin is one of the leaders in the final 21 players of the $1,500 HORSE event. Ramdin has already watched former Team PokerStars Pros Joe Hachem and Chad Brown cash in the event for $6,686. He played late into last night and will come back late today to shoot for his first World Series bracelet. To get unstuck for the Series, he will have to make the final table. If he wins, it will make for a decent summer and $256,000 first prize.
Ramdin and the other 20 players left in his event will come back at 3pm today and play all the way down to a bracelet. That is something that could take no small amount of time. We'll be keeping an eye on him and let you know how it turns out.
Good luck today, Victor.
