Jake Balsiger Could Become the Youngest Winner of the World Series Of Poker Main Event

The 2012 World Series of Poker Main Event Final Table is set. The nine players are on a three-month hiatus and will find their way back to Las Vegas in October to play for the diamond-encrusted bracelet and the $8.5 million first-place prize.

Jake Balsiger is a student at Arizona State University. This year marked his first World Series of Poker, and at 21, he is the youngest member of the 2012 WSOP Main Event Final Table. If he wins, he would take the record from Joe Cada as the youngest winner of the WSOP Main Event. He enters the Final Table in October eighth in chips with 13,115,000.

For a look back at how Jake Balsiger got to the 2012 WSOP Main Event Final Table, look through the PokerNews Live Reporting Blog, and for up-to-the-minute news, follow PokerNews on Twitter.
