Charles Wood is a local tournament and home game player. Wood is on of the five players at our final table that will receive their first ever WSOP tournament cash today. He is retired and says that if he wins, he will play more tournaments and travel more often.
This is Marc Fluss’ first WSOP final table and first overall tournament cash. He is the Chief Operations Officer for Steel Buildings and proud member of the Jewish Poker League. When asked earlier whether he was prepared for this table, he told us, “Of course. Who wouldn’t be. This is what we play for if we play poker with any seriousness.” Fluss starts third in chips at today’s table.
