Scott Montgomery is heading to the final table of the 2008 World Series of Poker as the third biggest chip leader.

Montgomery is proving to be a force in the poker world with several big cashouts this year alone.  He finished 5th at the 2008 LA Poker Classic and accumulated nearly $300,000.  He followed that feat by winning nearly $40,000 total at two other events - 2008 39th Annual World Series of Poker, events #2 and #7, respectively.  He finished 29th in the second event and 17th in the seventh. 

Montgomery finished 16th at the World Championship Heads Up No-Limit Hold'em (Event 25) and took home another $36,000 and some change.  At the 2008 Bellagio Cup IV, he finished 4th and walked off with another $36,025.

Scott Montgomery is one of two Canadians at the final table of the 2008 WSOP along with Darus Suharto of Toronto.  Montgomery will be representing his home town of Perth, Ontario. 

The 26-year-old University of Waterloo graduate said he won't be doing much between now and the final table in November.

"Just keep playing poker," he said.

Montgomery nearly went out early Monday evening when he ran into his opponent's top pair, needing one of two aces on the river to stay alive. The ace of diamonds fell, keeping his tournament hopes alive against incredibly long odds.

His favorite online poker site is UltimateBet.com where his greatest tournament win was $20,000 according to our friends at PocketFives
