All players start the final table with close to the same stack. Anthony Reategui starts the final table as the official chip leader with 672,500 in chips, while Alexander Lakhov starts the final table with the smallest stack of 654,000. Reategui finished in seventh place in the $3,000 No-Limit Hold’em Shootout event that took place only a couple of weeks ago and is also the only player at the table with a bracelet to his name.
Dylan Linde was the final player to advance to the final table after a grueling 12-hour day, with 10 hours of play. Linde has over $1.8 million in live tournament earnings, but has yet to win his first bracelet. Other players making it to the final table include Bas de Laat and Young Phan, with Corey Dodd, Endrit Geci, Jesse Kertland, and Preston Lee all there as well.
