Hand #2 - Steve Sung Eliminated in 9th Place ($50,177)

Hand #2 - Doyle Brunson has the button in seat 1, Sung raises to 105,000, and Traniello calls from the big blind.

The flop comes {Q-Clubs}{10-Spades}{9-Spades}, Traniello bets 70,000, Sung moves all in, and Traniello calls with Q-Q-7-4 for a set of queens. Sung shows {A-Diamonds}{K-Spades}{9-Diamonds}-A for a pair of aces and a gutshot straight draw.

The turn card is the {6-Diamonds}, the river card is the {7-Hearts}, and Marco Traniello wins the pot with his set of queens.

Steve Sung is eliminated in ninth place, earning $50,177. The next player eliminated will receive $69,363 for eighth place.

Player Introductions

Seat 1 - Doyle Brunson: The ten-bracelet winner needs no introduction to poker fans, as he is perhaps the most decorated player to ever play the game. The Big Game at Bellagio is often called "Doyle's Game" among fans. He is looking to tie Phil Hellmuth with 11 career WSOP bracelets today.

Seat 2 - Patrik Antonius: One of the top online pros who has successfully transitioned to the Big Game. He played two high-profile final tables with Doyle Brunson, including last year's $50,000 H.O.R.S.E. and a WPT event.

Seat 3 - Marco Traniello: The husband of Jennifer Harman first played in the WSOP two years ago, and has already made a name for himself. He has more cashes since 2005 than any other player -- 14 times. This is his third final table this year.

Seat 4 - Rene Mouritsen: This is Mouritsen's third straight cash at the WSOP, and he finished second in the Mixed Hold'em event last week.

Seat 5 - Tommy Ly: The chipleader from Duluth, Georgia (my own hometown) is appearing at his second final table this Series in pot-limit Omaha.

Seat 6 - Jonas Flug-Entin: The day one chipleader survived some minefields on day two to reach the final table. This is his first WSOP, and he's making the most of it.

Seat 7 - Steve Sung: This is his first WSOP, and he has two cashes and this is his second final table, as he finished 3rd in Event #14.

Seat 8 - Stephen Ladowsky: This is his 12th cash and 3rd final table at the WSOP since his first back in 2005.

Seat 9 - Robert Mizrachi: Less famous than his brother Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi, Robert definitely has game. He has some high profile final tables, but lacks a breakthrough performance to take him to the next level. Could this be his night?

Player Introductions to Begin Soon

All nine players are seated and ready to go as various camera operators get into position. There is a capacity crowd in the audience ready to watch Doyle Brunson go for history.

Player introductions should be starting soon.

Phil Hellmuth Stops By

Doyle Brunson has already taken his place in seat 1, and Phil Hellmuth shows up during the pre-show preparations to wish Doyle good luck. "I want you to win this, buddy," he says in complete honesty. Hellmuth enjoys the competition.

Preparations are underway, but play will probably begin after the 2:00 pm PDT scheduled start.
