We just previewed the first half of our $2,000,000 GTD “live streaming” Final Table and there are five more players that need to be introduced before they take their seat that the biggest tournament table of their lives.
Again, these players don’t have the “biggest” tournament resumes, but none of that matters anymore as they have all outlasted over 4,000 players to get to this point and are now competing for the largest tournament scores of their career.
Here is the second half of the Event 1 Final Table:
Edgar Flores (Brooklyn, NY) – 3,230,000 (11 BB)
- The 25 year old Flores is making his first “real” tournament appearance, as he’s never played in a “major” event before this series. He comes in as the short stack, but he’s been in this position before as he came into Day 2 as one of the shorter stacks in the room with under 9 big blinds.
- He can be found on twitter @edgarfloresFTW and his interests outside poker include another card game “Magic The Gatehering” and women. This lady’s man will be making his biggest poker score here regardless of his Final Table finish.
David Fried (Marlboro, NY) – 5,980,000 (20 BB)
- The self employed Fried is also looking to make the biggest score of his career, but he’s been to a Borgata Final Table before, a feat he accomplished during the 2012 Fall Poker Open.
- Away from poker, Fried enjoys hiking and traveling.
Kenny Levine (East Brunswick, NJ) – 7,360,000 (24 BB)
- Deja vu, as we have another player looking to make the biggest score of his career, as Levine has been playing poker for close to 20 years, but has yet to have a “breakthrough” result.
- That will certainly come today regardless of how he finishes, as the owner and operator of a gold trading business will come to this Final Table with an average stack.
- Levine can be found on twitter @chillindaily and is a huge hockey fan.
Ryan Jones (Burlington, NC) – 18,215,000 (60 BB)
- Jones comes in not only as the Final Table chip leader, but also the only player with over $100,000 in live tournament earnings to his name. His biggest scores came in the summer of 2013, where he won a Wynn Summer Classic event in Las Vegas for $35,000 and then cashed in the WSOP Main Event for just over $40,000.
- The avid sports enthusiast can be found on twitter @grindonmind and will look to earn his second major poker title here today.
Mikhail Volfson (Brooklyn, NY) – 3,065,000 (10 BB)
- Volfson, the CEO of his own “All Pro Billing” company, comes into this Final Table with the shortest stack, nursing just over 10 big blinds.
- He’s had a few Borgata scores over the last six months, Final Tabling the PocketFives Open Main Event this past summer and then cashing in the $2,000,000 GTD Event 1 during the WPT BPO in September.
- Outside of poker, he enjoys an active lifestyle, regularly playing basketball, volleyball, soccer and fishing.
