Monday, 26 October 2009

Kassam "Freddy" Deeb, who has four previous final table appearances and two titles on the World Poker Tour in addition to a $50k HORSE bracelet from the WSOP, will be coming to the Festa al Lago final table with the chip lead and a good chance of winning the $1.2m first prize.

In an interview with he said: "It never gets old making money," said the 2007 $50,000 H.O.R.S.E. champion. "And I'm feeling very confident. I always feel confident. Otherwise I don't play. I really want to win though, and I'm definitely going to try my best.

"I'll just wait things out, see how it goes and see how they play. Every day is a different day."

Deeb leads the field with 3.8m chips but Ohio businessman Shawn Cunix is just a little behind him. Cunix has over $500,000 in career tournament earnings - a far cry from Deeb's $6.2m, but not bad for someone who considers himself a part-time poker player.

The full chip counts for the 2009 WPT Festa al Lago final table are as follows:

Freddy Deeb - 3.8 million

Shawn Cunix - 3.6 million

Tommy Vedes - 2.9 million

Craig Crivello - 2.5 million

Jason Lavallee - 2 million

Jason Burt - 1.3 million
