July 25, 2011
888 Poker is proud to announce that two Team 888 Poker sponsored players have made their way to the 2011 WSOP Main Event Final Table!
888 Poker has had a record breaking year with several mile stones including; launch of PokerCam and Team features, 132% year-on year growth in liquidity, EGR winner of Best Poker Software, EGR winner of Socially Responsible Operator of the Year, two Team 888 Poker 2011 WSOP Bracelet Wins and now another two Team 888 Poker players at the 2011 WSOP Final Table covered by ESPN.
The two players that will represent 888 Poker this November at the Final Table are Samuel Holden and Anton Makievskyi.
Sam Holden is officially the "Last Brit Standing" in this year's WSOP Main Event. The 22-year-old is from Canterbury, England is making his WSOP debut. The final table will mark his first cash for WSOP. He has a few scores from the UK & Ireland poker tour, including a first-place finish last month in a NLHE six-handed event, though no previous cashes above four figures.
Anton Makievskyi of Dnipropetrousk, Ukraine is playing in his first-ever WSOP and is the youngest final table player at only 21 years old! He is looking to be the fifth Ukrainian to potentially take home a WSOP bracelet this year, which would pull Ukraine into a tie with Canada for the second-most bracelets of any country behind the U.S.
The Final Table will resume play November 5-7, 2011. Currently Anton Makievskyi is 8TH place in chips with 15,325,000 and Samuel Holden is holding on at 9TH place with an 13,725,000 chip stack.
