This final table is a star-studded affair, if you'll pardon the pun. Right now, though, the rail is almost as noteworthy as the players on the felt.

Daniel Idema, Matt Vengrin, and Ismael Bojang have all been spotted in the bleachers this afternoon. Idema is a three-time bracelet winner who plays all the games well, and one of his WSOP victories came in a discipline of Stud. Vengrin doesn't have a bracelet yet, but he's come close before, including a fourth-place finish in that Stud Hi/Lo event won by Idema. Bojang is another jack of all trades, with nearly $2 million in live tournament earnings across a multitude of games.

Bill Chen, who finished this event in seventh place, just showed up too, along with Gavin Griffin. Both of them are bracelet winners, as well.

Also lurking on the rail is Team Mizrachi, currently consisting of brothers Eric and Donny.
