pokerNov.10, (THAINDIAN NEWS) The stage is all set for the main event of the World Series Of Poker 2009 with Darvin Moon and Joe Cada clashing against each other with the aim of grabbing the world’s prestigious poker title. The final table play has witnessed the battle of the young with the old as 21 year old Cada plays the final game with 45 year old Moon. The two players have outplayed the other huge number of participants in the popular poker tournament that is held annually in Las Vegas.

The difference between the two players has surely contributed in making the final event all the more interesting. However, the first hour of the game saw Moon take a chip lead from the young player but Cada retaliated by winning two pivotal big pots for himself which ensured that he again comes back to the game. The final event would be all the more special for young Cada because if he manages to win the event he would be the youngest player to earn the title. However, Cada is a veteran online poker player and plays online tournaments at regular intervals but his older counterpart Moon has confessed that he has only played the game for fun and has never been an online player. Interestingly, whoever manages to make the final cut could gain around $8.5 million.

The World Series of Poker is held every year in Las Vegas where poker players from all across the country participate. The first World Series game was held in the year 1970 and since then over the years, the tournament has gained immense popularity.
