PartyPoker World Open Final Nearly Set
The final table for the Party Poker World Open is nearly set and it looks set to be one of the liveliest finals of the year. Of course trash talking Luke 'Fullflush' Schwartz is there, making his 3rd high profile TV final of the year, but he will really have to compete for air time. Colourful Irishman Andy Black has also made the final, as have the lovebirds Phil Laak and Jennifer Tilly, who are not known for being shy and retiring. We just have one more heat, followed by a runners up heat today, until we play out the final table which will no doubt be must watch TV (And possibly car crash TV) when it's televised later on this year.
