Introductions are over, cards are in the air and we're officially underway.
Welcome to the Day 4, the final table of Event #36 $1,000 No Limit Hold'em. After four days of play, nine individuals are just a half-hour away from competing for a World Series bracelet and $481,760 cash.
Our chip leader heading into the day is Sebastien Roy with 1,867,000 chips. Timothy Beeman is close enough to feel the lead, though. He'll be starting the day off with 1,788,000 chips. Beeman is the eldest player at the table, which is made up of mostly young internet-bred players. He'll no doubt be looking to prove that poker isn't being dominated by players barely old enough to buy beer.
John Dolan already cashed once during this World Series, placing 32nd in Event #30. He's already bested that result as well as his other live cashes, of which there are plenty. Daniel Fuhs is another final tablist to have already booked a cash. He's actually got two under his belt this year alone. It's his second WSOP final table, having placed 9th in Event #4 in last year's series.
Mick Carlson had quite a day yesterday and is heading into play with close to a million chips. He's got over $500,000 in online tournament winnings and if you believe his vocal rail supporters, he's got what it takes to take this one down as well. Our last player sitting with close to a million is Peter Dufek. While he may not have as strong a resume in live tournaments as some of the other players, a win today will certainly help change that.
Adam Richardson is somewhat of a WSOP veteran. This will be the fifth consecutive year in which he's cashed but he's looking for his first bracelet and largest score.
Towards the bottom of the counts we have Michael Michnik, who has cashed for over $20,000 this year alone and a fellow named Scott Montgomery. Montgomery has had quite a bit of success since placing 5th in the 2008 Main Event. While he may have millions in winnings, he doesn't yet own a bracelet, and will be looking to change that today.
Stick with us through the day. Cards will be in the air shortly and we'll be bringing you all the double ups, bust outs and miracle rivers along the way to crowning a winner.
