Seat 5: Timothy Adams (1,198,000)
The Mayans may have predicted global demise in 2012, but don't tell that to Timothy Adams. Adams has had his best year as a professional poker player here in 2012, winning a World Series of Poker bracelet in Event #28 ($392,476) and final tabling Event #57 (7th, $100,696) a few weeks later. Add three more WSOP cashes, and Adams has racked up over $554,896 in the last nine months.
No matter where he finishes today, this will be Adams' largest career live cash. If he wins then he, like Charania, will have three legs of poker's Triple Crown locked up.
Adams enters the final table third in chips, with both of the chip leaders on his direct left.
