A 21-year-old professional poker player, Max Silver will enter the final table sixth in chips. He hails from London, England and holds nearly $370,000 in live tournament earnings coming into this final table, which is his largest cash earning to date. Prior to poker, Silver worked in marketing, but switching to the game has provided him with a lot of early success.
In September 2010, Silver won the UKIPT Dublin Main Event for €72,000. A month later, he won a £1,500 side event at the EPT London for £83,588. Outside of those finishes, Silver placed in the money in the WPT Grand Prix de Pairs and then went on to final table the same UKIPT Dublin Main Event in 2011 that he won the previous year.
This isn't Silver's first World Series of Poker final table. Earlier in this WSOP Europe, Silver final tabled the €3,000 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout and placed fourth.
