Seat 3: Will Jones, Australia - 730,00 – This 22-year-old prefers live cash games to online play.  He has limited individual winnings to date but has played on the Tasmanian team that won the State of Origin event at Crown Casino earlier in the week.

Seat 4: Phillip Willcocks, New Zealand - 2,317,000 - Runner-up in the inaugural ANZPT Queensland Main Event for AUD $112,000.

Seat 5: Michael Frydman, Australia - 741,000.  He finished third in the 2006 Victorian Poker Championships.  Frydman is 56-years-old.

Seat 6: Steve Bouya, Australia - 910,000 - Melbourne native Steve Bouya has been playing poker as a hobby for the past 10 years. Bouya is 51-years-young and has a little more than $60,000 in prize money to his name; the bulk of which he earned for a third place finish in a $1,000 buy-in side event at the 2009 Aussie Millions.

Seat 7: Julius Colman, Australia - 513,000

Seat 8: Leo Boxell, Australia - 1,170,000 – He has three quarter of a million dollars in live poker winnings to date.  Boxell is ranked in the Australian top 20 for all-time tournament earnings.
