It would be an entirely fair statement to say that Joseph Cheong is one of the best young tournament players in the game today. If you don't know who Cheong is, he famously finished in 3rd place at the 2010 World Series of Poker Main Event. Cheong earned $4,130,049 for his Main Event run and since then he has amassed a total of $5,377,687 in live tournament winnings.
That being said, the prestigious World Series of Poker championship bracelet has since evaded Cheong. Over the summer, Cheong finished second in Event 6: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em Mixed-Max. After just missing out on this event, Cheong had pointed out via Twitter that he scored a 3rd place followed by a 2nd place, and the next logical step for him would be a 1st place finish. That could happen today. Cheong will be bringing 1.966 million chips into play which is good for 3rd place in chips. If Cheong can best this star studded final table, that ever elusive WSOP bracelet may finally be his.
