Jonathan Duhamel, David Benyamine at Final Table of Poker Players Championship

Poker superstars Jonathan Duhamal (the 2010 WSOP Main Event champ) and David Benyamine were among those making the final table of the $50,000 buy-in Poker Players Championship heading into Thursday.

Those at the final table are guaranteed to walk away with at least $207,630. 

1st place takes home $1,774,089 while the runner up with get just over a million dollars.

Seat 1: Matthew Ashton – 2,996,000
