Online poker has been the greatest thing since sliced bread for all those poker players out there who have a connection to the internet. Poker players are becoming wiser faster and have developed their skills with incredible speed.
The top players in the world today honed their skills on the net and are competing for huge money in Las Vegas at the real tables with real face to face action.

The World Series of Poker started off this month with the November nine and is proving to be a challenge for even the best of the best. The marathon of card playing ended in the early morning hours with Jonathan Duhamel winning against Joseph Cheong to advance to heads up play with John Racener. Duhamel and Racener will play heads up for the WSOP Main Event championship and a  $8,944,310 first-place pool November 8, 2010.

The session ended abruptly with Cheong as the chip leader with 95.05 million when he and Duhamel launched in a betting frenzy as never witnessed before at a WSOP. In three-handed play, Cheong and Duhamel exchanged five bets to bring the pot to a total of 22.75 million. With a little time for reflection Cheong decided to push all in for 95.05 million, and Duhamel made a quick call. Cheong had Duhamel covered by about four million, creating the largest pot in the history of the WSOP.  Cheong won a cool $4,130,049 for finishing third.
The younger 23-year-old Duhamel will enter heads up play with 188.95 million in chips. And the only one year older Racener will have 30.75 million in chips.
The supporters of all the players were keeping the excitement up with chanting and cheering and as players were eliminated things became emotional for some.

The entertainment is amazing to watch these gladiators of poker battle it out on the green felt for stunning amounts of cash. Monday night will be a thriller for sure.
