Darvin Moon will face Joe Cada for the WSOP title

Darvin Moon, everybody's* favorite poker-playing logger from Oakland, Md., was one of two survivors of the wild final-table session at the World Series of Poker's Main Event in Las Vegas over the weekend.

The 46-year-old amateur will play 21-year-old internet-poker whiz Joe Cada heads-up for the world championship late Monday night.

Here's my report on the longest final table in Main Event history:
"The lumberjack fells some giants in Las Vegas"

* Phil Ivey and Steven Begleiter might not love Moon, who hit three-outers against both players to eliminate them from the tournament. Moon's AQ ran down Ivey's AK and his AQ ran down Begleiter's pocket queens.
