Tournament Report

The Final Table:

SEAT 1: Richard Lee
Hometown: San Antonio, Texas
Chip Count: 11,820,000

Richard Lee a 55-year-old investor from San Antonio, Texas. He was born in Honolulu, Hawaii. This is the second straight year that Richard has played at the World Series of Poker. This is his first time to cash and first time ever to make it to a final table. Prior to this, Richard's best poker finish was 12th place at last year's Grand Slam of Poker held in Los Angeles. Richard is married and has three grown children. When asked what he wants the rest of the world to know about him, Richard said, 'I love my family, my country, and San Antonio!' He arrives third today in the chip count.

SEAT 2: Erik Friberg
Hometown: Stockholm, Sweden
Chip Count: 9,605,000

Erik Friberg is a 23-year-old professional online poker player from Stockholm, Sweden. He represents a growing legion of Scandinavian poker superstars who have come to the WSOP and won prize money. In fact, Sweden now ranks as the most successful country in terms of number of players compared to in-the-money finishers. Erik plays mostly on the Internet and won the Swedish Poker Challenge in 2005. His poker nickname, 'Lilar' means, appropriately enough, 'gambler.' Prior to taking up poker for a living, he was a college student. Erik is already guaranteed at least a million-and-a-half dollars in what is his first year to play at the World Series. He arrives fourth today in the chip count.

SEAT 3: Paul Wasickca
Hometown: Westminster, Colorado
Chip Count: 7,970,000

Paul Wasickca is a 25-year-old poker player who used to work as a bartender and restaurant manager. He was born in Dallas, Texas -- and now lives in Westminster, Colorado. Paul started playing poker about two years ago and has already cashed six times at major poker tournaments, including 14th place in a previous No-Limit Hold'em event held at this year's World Series. His poker nickname is 'Kwick Fish.' When asked what he wants the rest of the world to know about him, Paul said, 'I have the best friends and family anyone could ask for.' He arrives fifth today in the chip count.

SEAT 4: Dan Nassif
Hometown: St. Louis, Missouri
Chip Count: 2,600,000

Dan Nassif is a 33-year-old account executive from St. Louis, Missouri. Dan took his vacation time away from work to enter and play in this year's World Series. That certainly turned out to be a terrific decision. Not too many vacations pay the kind of money Dan is sure to make over this two-week period. Nassif has played fabulous poker in this championship event, although he has frequently been one of the shorter stacks at his table. He arrives with the biggest test of anyone today - ninth place in the chip count.

SEAT 5: Allen Cunningham
Hometown: Las Vegas, Nevada
Chip Count: 17,770,000

Allen Cunningham is a 29-year-old professional poker player from Las Vegas, Nevada. He is easily the most accomplished poker player of today's final nine. Allen has won four WSOP gold bracelets - for Seven-Card Stud in 2001, Deuce-to-Seven Lowball in 2002, No-Limit Hold'em in 2005, and another No-Limit Hold'em championship in 2006. Allen burst onto the poker scene back in 1998 as one of the young guns - along with Phil Ivey, Daniel Negreanu, Layne Flack, John Juanda, and others - who have collectively revolutionized the game of poker with their talent and ambition. A victory today would seal Cunningham's place as perhaps the greatest player in the game today. He arrives second in the chip count.

SEAT 6: Michael Binger
Hometown: Atherton, California
Chip Count: 3,140,000

Michael Binger is a 29-year-old part-time poker pro originally from Delray Beach, Florida, who also has career ambitions as a theoretical physicist. He now lives in Atherton, California. Just two months ago, he earned his PhD in physics from Stanford University. This is the second year that Michael has played at the World Series.
