Canadian poker pro Vanessa Kade comes into the final table as the chip leader with more than 170 big blinds.
According to The Hendon Mob, Kade has close to half a million in live tournament earnings, although the online scene is where she has seen the majority of her success.
Last year, she topped a massive field of 69,876 entries in the PokerStars Sunday Million 15th Anniversary tournament with an online alias of "Niffller", where she took home the $1,514,920 first-place prize, although a win today could see her even surpass that score.
Kade chipped up to 345,000 on the first day of the tournament, but didn't fare as well on the second day and actually lost chips. She regained those chips and then some on Day 3 but still was a shorter stack. Day 4 is when she really started to gain momentum and multiplied her chips by a factor of more than seven, finishing with a top-five stack.
On Day 5, she soared to the top of the leaderboard after eliminating Ian Matakis near the end of the day, and she takes that lead into the final table.
