The Year of the Brits Part 2 is in full flow as James ‘Flushy’ Dempsey is in control at the final table of event number #9 $1500 Pot Limit Hold’em. He surged to the chip lead on day 1 and pretty much held onto it for the entire tournament. Right now a small matter of pocket change puts him in second place behind Steve Chanthabouasy and he will go into the final tonight probably the big favourite.

Everyone is guaranteed $14,715 and first place pays out $197,470.
Flushy is a popular player in the UK who is well known for both his talents on the felt and for staking a large number of up and coming young online players. He is also considered something of a legend over at the Blondepoker forum where he is a big stakeholder. Dempsey is both a fierce cash game player and a fantastic online MTT player who many believe is due a big live tournament result, hopefully tonight this will be it.
