WSOP Event #40: PokerStars' Barry Greenstein makes final table

wsop2009_thn.gifIf you've been following our updates today you'll appreciate the road to the WSOP $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha final table has been a twisty and dangerous one.

Team PokerStars Pro Barry Greenstein has driven down this particularly treacherous stretch of tarmac at death-defying speed, often cornering so fast I swear two of his wheels left the ground.

But he's made the final table in one piece, his first final table of this WSOP, albeit with a below average chip stack of 780,000. Before they get down to action on the feature stage area, there's food to be had: the nine final tablists are on a dinner break.
