The biggest surprise and chip leader is Kevin Schaffel a virtually unknown, until this past summers WSOP, where he battled over 6000 players in the Main Event, to become one of the elite November 9, and garanteed at least $1.5 million. Going into this final table as the chip leader he now has a chance to take down 1st place worth $1 million.
I always like it when someone that is not known main stream in the poker world has an amazing showing at the Main Event in The WSOP and then follows that up with a WPT TV final table. It takes me back to last years WSOP, when Ivan Demidov made the November 9 and then went and made the final table of the Main Event in The WSOP Europe.
This just shows when you are on a heater it pays off.
