Faraz Jaka is the final table chip leader, stacked at 5,385,000. He’s followed by Scotty Nguyen with 4,900,000. They’re followed by Daniel Alaei (3,925,000), Shawn Buchanan (2,800,000), Josh Arieh (1,710,000), and Steve O’Dwyer (1,050,000).
For those who care about these types of things, a win here about give Scotty Nguyen two WPT titles for his career and move him up to third on the all-time tourney money list. Along with Nguyen, Buchanan is going for his second WPT title. This would be Josh Arieh’s first WPT win if he can pull it out (he does have two WSOP bracelets). Same goes for Daniel Alaei (who won one of those bracelets this year). T
