Final Table Bios: Seat 4: Kyle Kloeckner (494,000)

Kyle Kloeckner is from St. Louis, MO, and has played in the WSOP for the past two years. He has yet to record a cash, so it goes without saying that this is his first final table. Kyle is a former philosophy major turned poker pro. If he wins the bracelet today, he says he "will buy drinks for a lot of people."

He begins play with 494,000 chips, and is the chip leader.

Final Table Bios: Seat 3: Kyle Hegeman (198,000)

Kyle Hegeman is with us today from Port Jefferson, NY. He is a professional player with a PhD in Computer Science. He has amassed more than $44,000 in cashes, and this final table marks his third cash already in this WSOP.

He begins play with 198,000 chips.

Final Table Bios: Seat 2: Jonathan Depa (185,000)

Jonathan Depa is an up-and-comer from Chicago, Illinois. This is is second WSOP, and his third in-the-money finish. He took 36th in the $2,500 six-handed event last year, and 92nd in the $1,500 event this year, also short handed. He has just over $9,000 in career cashes, so his finish today will multiply that several times over, regardless of where he finishes.

He begins play with 185,000 chips.

Final Table Bios: Seat 1, Max Pescatori (212,000)

Seat 1 - Max Pescatori
Seat 1 - Max Pescatori
Max "Italian Pirate" Pescatori is a native of Milan, Italy, and has been playing poker since he was 15 years old. He was the chip leader for much of day two before slowing down a tad towards the end of play. There's no doubt he'll be ready for today though. Max has over $2,000,000 in career earnings, including a recent first place finish in the $1,000 buy-in event at the L.A. Poker Classic in February. He is also the proud owner of a gold bracelet, which he earned in 2006 playing a $2,500 NLHE event.

He begins play with 212,000 chips.
