Bringing up the rear at this final table will be Australian Sam Khouiss with 106,000 in chips. You may remember this 52-year-old poker player from a couple earlier results here at the 2014 World Series of Poker Asia-Pacific where he reached the final table in both.
In the first, the AU$1,650 8-Game Dealer's Choice, Khouiss finished second to Rory Young for AU$26,402. He then made the final table in the AU$5,000 8-Game Mixed and took sixth for AU$13,310. Last year, Khouiss took seventh in the WSOP's AU$2,200 Mixed for AU$7,200.
All told, Khouiss now boasts $125,478 in live tournament earnings, and this result is already the largest of his career by a good margin.
The always-colorful man is married with seven kids and was born in Lebanon. He now resides in Sydney, Australia, and is a poker player by trade looking for his first gold bracelet. Khouiss will enter Day 3 with under five big blinds, so he'll certainly have his work cut out for him.
