Key Players 

The last three players readjusted the payouts to better reflect their respective chip counts. With the money locked up, Phil 'Flash' Gordon still wanted that bracelet. As a horse for world champion Chris Ferguson, Phil's style couldn't be less similar to Chris'. Seldom does Gordon see four cards he doesn't like enough to bet. Playing more hands than anyone else causes Phil's chips to fluctuate wildly. If he starts to run bad, it can end quickly. Phil was third in chips when the deal was made with $92k. All those chips were gone in about half an hour. Gordon went all-in with A K J 6. Shrugging, Eddie Fishman gave Phil some action with 10 3 2 2. This wasn't the way it was supposed to end. Phil lost to Eddie's pair of deuces with no pair, and to the 3 2 low with his A 6.

Doug Saab and Eddie Fishman split a one-table satellite to get into this event. Each might have said upon parting 'See you at the Final Table,' never thinking that they would not only both make it, but that they would be playing heads up for the bracelet as well. Fishman won through after having fun at the dinner break by switching places with his identical twin. Lucky they had different shirts on.
