Final Table Profile: Dean Hutchison
Dean Hutchison's Main Event Story
Dean Hutchison is a Scottish poker player with $723,865 in live tournament earnings. His first tournament score came in 2010, and he has racked up cashes from tournaments worldwide.
The first four years of his poker journey saw him mainly play in the United Kingdom and Ireland. His first major tournament win was on home soil, where he took down the 2014 UKIPT Edinburgh Main Event for $154,000. This score propelled Hutchison's career to greater heights and has since become a regular fixture at the European Poker Tour and World Series of Poker.
Hutchison, who is single, nearly completed back-to-back wins in the UKIPT Edinburgh Main Event as he notched a fifth-place finish the following year from his win.
Prior to Hutchison making the 2023 WSOP Main Event final table, he had just 11 WSOP cashes to his name. His cashes are split between the live and virtual felt.
At the 2020 WSOP Online, he finished in 110th place in that year's Millionaire Maker for $8,214, which is his best online result. At the 2023 WSOP, he also made his first WSOP final table in the $1,500 Freezout for $35,773.
Hutchison's last live tournament win was in April 2023, where he collected $25,100 in a $600 Deepstack event at WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown.
Hutchison's Run to the Final Table
Hutchison, a professional poker player, has been in Las Vegas all summer long battling in the poker streets alongside friends. He played the Day 1d flight and managed to more than triple his stack. He lost some back on Day 2, but then caught fire on Day 3 when he quadrupled his stack and then doubled that against on Day 4. Amazingly, he did so while being ill.
"The first four days I wasn't feeling well, I had some nasty flu," Hutchison told PokerNews after making the final table. "So, I was just playing and then going to the house to rest."
A crucial hand for Hutchison took place on Day 8 in Level 36 (400,000/800,000/800,000) when he five-bet jammed with pocket aces and was called by Jan-Peter Jachtmann, who had two red tens. The all-heart flop was dangerous for Hutchison as he didn't have a heart, but fortunately for him his pocket rockets held to give him a much-needed double.
In the late stages of the tournament, Hutchison hung out towards the middle to back of the pack. While he was never really among the biggest stacks, Hutchison has given himself a shot at the title and will begin the final table seventh out of the returning nine players.

Hutchison's Final Table Performance
Hutchison's final table journey began with him in the seventh place spot with 41,700,000 in chips, more than double the small stack but still not a lot of room for fancy play.
After a flurry of eliminations during the 800k/1.6m blind level, Hutchinson saw the biggest stacks growing as his own dwindled down to 22,400,000.
With the big blind still at 1.6 million, Hutchinson picked up pocket fives (5♦5♣) and made it 18,400,000 to go. Jan-Peter Jachtmann moved all in, covering Hutchinson who called off his last 4,000,000.
Jachtmann turned over the pocket sevens (7♠7♥). Both players missed the board and Jachtmann's sevens held, busting Hutchinson in sixth place ($1,850,000).
