Philip Shing will be the second shortest stack at the start of the final table with 2,740,000 in chips.
He had a large stack toward the top of the counts toward the end of Day 4 and had roller coaster Day 5, going from low to high a few times before settling amongst the final nine.
Hailing from Brooklyn, New York, Shing is an experienced player who has won two WSOP Circuit Rings in his career, one for $14,543 in Foxwoods in 2015 and a large one in February 2020 for $151,284 in the Potawatomi Casino $1,700 Main Event.
That ring is not his largest career cash however as boasts a $168,990 score for coming in sixth in the $3,500 WPT Seminole Hard Rock event in Hollywood, Florida in January of this year. This tournament will add quite a score to his career total winnings of $482,611 according to The Hendon Mob.
