Shannon "aulophobia" Shorr Leading the Pack

Shannon Shorr

With 66 players remaining, poker pro Shannon "aulophobia" Shorr leads the pack.

According to Google, aulophobia (his screen name) is the fear of flutes. Whether it is the look of the flute, the sound it makes when being played, or the clicking sound from the buttons.

With 95 WSOP-related cashes totaling $2,433,880 in earnings, Shorr, who in 2014 summitted Mount Kilimanjaro, is often on the shortlist of "Best Players Without a Bracelet."

The Alabama native, who sits atop that state's all-time money list with more than $8 million in earnings, has come close in the past having finished runner-up twice, a pair of third-place finishes, and four fifth-place finishes.

Last month, Shorr had some success on when he finished runner-up in the Season Finale Online Circuit Monster Stack for $26,899.

It seems to be only a matter of time before Shorr finally finds WSOP gold, and it could very well happen tonight.
