Players have unbagged their chips for the last time and one of the final six players will take home $1.4 million for the title. The final table features players who dominated the tournament at various times during play and each earned their seat in front of the live audience at Paradise Live.

Mike Leah leads the pack to start the final table after a great run on Day 4. The Canadian pro has nearly $5 million in combined online and live career earnings. Right behind him is Dan Colman, winner of the 2014 Big One for One Drop event for the second biggest WSOP payout in history.

Those two have a little distance on the other four players but they cannot be discounted. Poker pro Joe Kuether has an impressive number of results to his credit including $2.2 million in career tournament earnings and a runner-up finish in the 2014 WSOP National Championship.

Shawn Cunix joins Colman as the other player at the final table with a major title. The Ohio resident captured the 2012 WPT Jacksonville Main Event for just under $500,000. John Dolan knows a little something about high pressure final tables as a member of the 2010 WSOP November Nine.

The wildcard today will be Martin Hanowski. He is the least known at the final table but the German national final tabled the WSOP $3,000 No Limit Hold’em tournament this summer. Hanowski spent most of this tournament among the leaders and deserves his spot at this final table.
