The first Limit Hold'em event of the 2014 WSOP will come to a conclusion today and it's a star-studded final table headed by Dan Kelly who ended the second day of play with a staggering 734,000 in chips. Kelly will be going for his second bracelet today - his first came in 2010 when he won $1,315,518 for taking down the $25,000 NLHE 6-Max title.
Standing in his way will be two players that both have five bracelets to their name. David Chiu sits second in chips with 473,000 and with two of his bracelets coming in Limit Hold'em, he will be a force to reckon with. Jeff Lisandro is down near the bottom of the chip counts with 177,000 in chips, but like Chiu he has an impressive track record in this game and should not be counted out.
At the other end of the spectrum are the challengers. Among them is Brandon Shack-Harris who recently one his first bracelet in Event #3: $1,000 Pot Limit Omaha and then went on to add a second place finish in Event #18: Seven Card Razz. This will be his third final table this WSOP and he sits in the middle of the pack in chips with 269,000 in chips. Ron Burke is something of a WSOP Limit Hold'em specialist. He first cashed in a WSOP event back in 1990 and has cashed a total of eight times with seven of those cashes being in Limit Hold'em tournaments. He'll be looking to improve upon his career best eighth place finish he got in 2011.
Here is how the final table looks along with their chip counts:
