After out-playing (with a few lucky breaks along the way) a field of 5,600+, nine rounders have made their way to the 2005 WSOP Main Event final table. Leading them all is Aaron Kanter.
Kanter does have one cash in a WPT event (the Ultimate Poker Classic) where he finished 92nd. But otherwise, he’s in personal uncharted poker territory. Matusow, Black, Hachem, and Lazar have more experience (Matusow raking more career tournament winnings than everyone else combined), but Kanter is not afraid to go heads-up with anyone.
Play is supposed to kick-off today at 4pm (PST). This still may change, but that’s the latest word from WSOP officials. We’ll keep you posted.
