Jesse Sylvia, 2012 World Series of Poker Main Event Final Table Chip Leader

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.

The chip leader, with 43,875,000 going into play in October, is 26-year-old Jesse Sylvia. A graduate of Cal Lutheran University, Sylvia is a professional poker player who resides in Las Vegas. He had one WSOP cash prior to his run in the 2012 World Series of Poker Main Event.

For a look back at how Jesse Sylvia 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.
