In second place in the chip counts with 133,900,000 is Giuliano Lentini of New York. Lentini started the final table last night as the short stack but won three big hands to become a force in the counts. He is the only player of the remaining five to have a cash larger than fifth place. However, should be ladder up to a fourth place finish he will secure the largest cash of his poker career.
Alex Vazquez enters the final table in third place with 114,600,000. The Puerto Rican native, held a massive chip lead for much of the final table last night before plateauing to a comfortable third place position. Vazquez has three five-figure poker scores; the largest of which being for $30,230, so this result blows any other result out of the water thus far in his career by some distance.
Right on Vazquez’s heels in fourth place is Max Tavepholjalern of Honolulu, Hawaii. He boasts only seven recorded cashes in his poker career thus far, two of which at the 2019 WSOP for a total of just shy of $3,000.
Michael Eddy of Hollywood, Florida enters the final five as the significant short stack with only 26,000,000 in chips, which is worth nine big blinds. Eddy’s largest cash so far in his career was for just short of $10,000, so once again a player who is living their dream via this deep run in a huge WSOP tournament.
