After 3 days of play (4 if you include both Day 1a and b), the World Poker Tour's Bay 101 Shooting Star main event is down to a final table. Erik Cajelais, from Canada, will sit down at the final table today with a 3,6 million stack - about 1,3 million more than Ubaid Habib in second place.
Cajelais, 27, could easily be mistaken for a motorcycle thug with his muscular body, shaved head and arms covered with tattoos. But don't be fooled! Cajelais is a very talented poker player who has won over $2.3 million in the past few years. If he's the last man standing after the final table today, he will take home the biggest cash of his career and cross the $3 million mark in live tournament earnings. Not bad since he only has been playing professionally for 1 year.
