The cream rises to the top, they say. A look at the final eight-men lineup in the Event #20: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em is certainly in line with the statement. Some of the world's most prolific players will take the centre stage in the Amazon Room, playing for the $537,710 first-place prize and, of course, the bracelet.

There's Shawn Buchanan, an accomplished Canadian player on both live and virtual felts. He's been trying to claim a bracelet for well over a decade. After several narrow misses including three second-place finishes, Buchanan still has a goose egg next to his name when it comes to the WSOP titles. But he's cashed in 46 tournaments and hopes he'll finally close it out with his 47th.

Buchanan sits at the top of the leaderboard after a brilliant Day 3. Having a better starting position than anyone else is one thing, but there are still seven other contenders challenging "Bucky".

Two of them belong to the heavyweight category. David Peters and Jake Schindler are regularly playing the largest and most expensive events all around the world. They have won over $40 million combined. Both of them have been performing strongly in the last two years. But there is one significant difference between Peters and Schindler: Peters is already a member of the WSOP winners' club while Schindler is yet to bink his first gold.

The three aforementioned stars from North America will be joined by four other U.S. players: Jeremy Wien, Eric Blair, John Amato and Richard Tuhrim. The only player from across the pond is Spanish pro David Laka who currently resides in the United Kingdom. Laka will collect his first WSOP cash today and he'll surely do everything in his power to start his collection with a top notch.

With all these players taking back to the felt, it's almost guaranteed that the final day will offer some tremendous battles. PokerNews live reporting team will be on the ground, providing hand-for-hand updates so make sure to come back at 12 p.m. local time to see the climax of one of the toughest events on the WSOP schedule.
