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. 

Final table lineup:
Seat 1: Joe Elpayaa - 908,000 (95 BBs)
Seat 2: Joe Serock - 952,000 (98 BBs)
Seat 3: Moon Kim - 2,098,000 (105 BBs)
Seat 4: Ubaid Habib - 2,274,000 (114 BBs)
Seat 5: Erik Cajelais - 3,640,000 (182 BBs)
Seat 6: Andrew Badecker - 1,040,000 (52 BBs)

And all those most known names who were taking the lead of this tourney during the first two days just lost their position as protagonists. Other figures now raise but still nothing is decided.

I knew Erik Cajelais was very good but I didn't know he had already won 2.3 millions in his career! What's the prizepool in this tournament? What was the buy-in?
