There wasn't much information to be found on Matthew Wheat, but we can tell you that this is unchartered territory of him. He's never made a WSOP final table, nor has he even cashed in a WSOP event. The only two scores we can find on Wheat are back in February of 2009 when he took 11th in a $300 No-Limit Hold'em Venetian Deep Stack event and 14th in the $1,060 No-Limit Hold'em Mega Stack Championship.
Wheat is a CardRunners Pro where he goes under the name "mindcirkus", regularly making PLO videos for the site.
Wheat comes into the day right in the middle of the pack, sitting in fifth position out of the nine remaining players. He does have a below-average stack, so he'll need to get some momentum going early. Making the final table for the first time you cash isn't a bad way to start things off for a WSOP career, but can Wheat walk away with the gold?
