Hey, The WSOP-C Caesar’s Has a Killer Final Table

Blair_hinkle_wsopc_caesarsMost of the general poker public kind of shrugs their shoulders at the WSOP-C these days. With little to no TV exposure anymore, smaller buy-ins, and "tour stops" in Indiana, the sex appeal just isn’t there.

But that doesn’t mean they still can’t snag some great fields and top notch final tables. Like this one at the WSOP-C in Caesar’s Palace Las Vegas.

With 334 entrants and a $5,000 buy-in, the winner looks to bank just shy of half a mil. Leading the way by a large margin going into final table play is Ben Fineman with 828,000. Fineman is followed by Kelly Sampson with 385,000 and the suddenly uber-present Blair Hinkle (at right) with 382,000.

Of the big names remaining, the biggest stack is previous WSOP-C luckbox winner Doug Lee with 324,000. Bracelet winner Ralph Perry (319,000), five-time bracelet winner and ’06 WSOP Main Event Final Table finisher Allen Cunningham (296,000), and Justin Bonomo (272,000) all still remain.
