Setting the Stage

Afternoon Shootout Finale on Tap
 
It'll be six guns (not six-guns) a-blazin' in Las Vegas starting at 2pm this afternoon, when the finalists in Event #11, $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em Shoout return to settle the big prize money in a short-handed single-table tournament where everyone starts with the same stack -- a million in chips. Each of the finalists has already survived two similar elimination rounds to get this far, and a $477,990 prize awaits the winner. Here are the six players who'll mix it up for the big money: Seat 1: Greg Mueller (Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada) 1,000,000 Seat 2: Thomas Roupe (Houston, Texas) 1,000,000 Seat 3: Philip Tom (Las Vegas, Nevada) 1,000,000 Seat 4: Leo Wolpert (Fairfax, Virginia) 1,000,000 Seat 5: Timothy West (Los Angeles, California) 1,000,000 Seat 6: Sirous Jamshidi (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) 1,000,000 We'll have all the important hands from the final table. Check back early and often -- in short-handed NLHE, the action can be fast and plentiful.
