Garrett Greer, Mukul Pahuja, Nam Le, WPT BAY 101 Shooting Star.
Posted on Friday, March 14, 2014 by "T".
The final table of the 2014 World Poker Tour Bay 101 Shooting Star is set after three intensive days of play at the Bay 101 Casino in the San Fransisco Bay Area. The final 6 players (of 718 entries) who will return for the final table today are fighting for a massive $1,256,560 first prize, so it will for sure be an exciting end to the tournament!
The chip leader is Mukul Pahuju with 6,470,000 in chips. According to WPT's website, Pahuju will take the lead in the Season XII WPT Player of the Year race no matter where he finishes at the final table (current leader is Jared Jaffe). However, perhaps the most interesting player to follow on the final table will be Nam Le (picture), who is playing his 5th WPT final table and won this tournament back in 2006 (Season IV) for $1,198,300! Le has has over $6.5 million in live tournament earnings to date. Below you'll find the table seating chart with chips counts:
Seat 1. Nam Le - 1,715,000 (34 bb)
Seat 2. Garrett Greer - 1,235,000 (24 bb)
Seat 3. Shaun Suller - 4,200,000 (84 bb)
Seat 4. Dylan Wilkerson - 5,850,000 (117 bb)
Seat 5. James Carroll - 2,075,000 (41 bb)
Seat 6. Mukul Pahuja - 6,470,000 (129 bb)

| Nam Le is a truly great player but even he will have to get extremely lucky to win this thing.There are two overwhelming chip leaders but there is nearly always a twist in these big events|

| It's interesting to calculate the inflation rate through this event. Back in 2006, the first prize was $1,198,300 and now, eight years after, the big one "only" increased $58,260, which means less than $10k per year. I know it's a lot of money, but wouldn't you expect a bigger rate? Who cares, i guess even Nam Le isn't that much worried with this question and he can win the $1,256,560 first prize, so why should hi be?|

| The Chinese taking over the world, anyway good luck to him, not sure he will win though, he has a medium stack, just hope he runs good and he wins, Asian players are good, well maybe it's just a coincidence but they are good at maths and cards etc.|
Good luck i'm supporting him!!

| There are no east tables anymore in poker especially at this level - Nam has already won a shit load, gotta be an underdog for the title with a small stack. |
So easy to bully the others when you lead with 129bb like Mukul.

| I never heard about Pahuju, but to sit at the final as chipleader table in a tourney with over 700 starting Players are verry great. And this WPT in San Franzisko with a prize pool over 1.2 Million $ was amazing.|

| I also never heard about the final table chip leader, he has a pretty good advantage lets hope that he will be able to use it right |
On the other hand there are also some great live players so nothing is set yet. It will be interesting to watch how will unfold.
