The final table in poker terms is the table where a poker tournament comes to a conclusion and where the winner is crowned. The table usually consists of 9 players and those will be the players that remain from a much larger field. Using the World Series of Poker Main Event as an example, in 2013 a total of 6,352 players entered the tournament, all paying the entry fee of $10,000 creating a prize pool of $59,708,800. The tournament started with several day 1 starts, eventually leading to day 3 where all players were playing at the same time. Those players continued to battle it out and eventually 9 players were left and those players, known as The November Nine, made it to the final table. Occasionally you will see tournaments with a different amount of players at the Final Table however 9 is the usual number, and you’ll often hear the term ‘Final Tablist’ which simply means a player who has made the final table. The same occurs in online poker tournaments and from large amounts of players they will be whittled down to the last few who make the final table.
