We were down to 20 players at the 2010 WSOP and Gambling911.com was following every exit Saturday as we count down to the final nine.

Among those who made exits early Saturday were Swedish poker stud William Thorsen and Denmark’s last remaining 2010 WSOP player standing Mads Wissing.  Redmond Lee was eliminated in 20th place.

Thorsen won over $2 million in lifetime tournaments to date and finishes this year in 22nd place and $317,161 richer.

Thorson came in 1st at the Pokerstars.com Baltic Festival.  In the 2006 World Series of Poker final, Thorson cashed out in 13th place and took home more than $900,000.  He finishes in 22nd place at the 2010 World Series of Poker.

Wissing cashed out at 25th in the 2010 World Series of Poker.

The Danish player – who has been living in Spain for a few years now – plays mainly online poker, but breaks his routine a few times a year for live events, mainly those in the European Poker Tour, according to Poker News Daily.

In 2007, Wissing won the Party Poker $300,000 tournament twice as well as the Scandinavian Open in Copenhagen.
