Seat 1: Mike Leah -- 2,576,000
Mike Leah enters Day 3 in charge of the final six with over 50% of the chips in play and a dominating lead on the rest of the competitors.
The 40-year-old Canadian professional poker player brings $3,338,247 in live tournament earnings and $2,532,359 in online tournament earnings to the final table, but one thing that has eluded Leah over his career is a World Series of Poker gold bracelet.
Leah has made four WSOP final tables throughout his career, and his best result was a third-place finish in the 2013 $5,000 Seven-Card Stud Hi-Lo event for $108,412. Leah certainly hopes he can secure his first gold bracelet in this event, stating on his bio sheet that he hopes for this event to prove his greatest poker accomplishment.
As it sits right now, Leah's best poker result came not too long ago, when in August he finished second to Daniel Colman in the 2014 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Main Event for a very impressive $1,047,638. In the virtual world of our game, Leah finished third in the 2011 PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker Main Event to the tune of $663,816.
Leah lists fantasy sports as his hobby.
