Laliberté is the 52-year-old founder and chief executive officer of Canada's famous Cirque du Soleil circus troupe. Originally a street performer, Laliberté currently owns 95 percent of the company. According to Forbes Magazine, his net worth is $1.5 billion (U.S.), making him the 654th richest man in the world. His most notable tournament success came in the form of a fourth-place finish in a 2007 World Poker Tour event. He became Canada's first private explorer in space and the first to engage in a Poetic Social Mission in space. He is also the founder of the One Drop Foundation, a philanthropic foundation to fight poverty in the world by giving everyone access to water and of course the beneficiary in this great event.

His biggest cash to date: 4th-place finish in 2007 WPT Five Star World Poker Classic — $696,220.

Rast comes to us from Las Vegas, Nevada.  He has amassed over $2.8 million in live tournament play to date including 20 money finishes and 2 wins, both of which were at the World Series of Poker, earning Rast two bracelets.
