Final Table Profile: Ramon Miquel Munoz
Ramon "Ritza" Miquel Munoz is the man currently occupying seventh-place with a stack of 3,025,000 chips.
Miquel Munoz hails from Barcelona, Spain but resides in London, United Kingdom. He's jetting off to the beautiful Czech Republic knowing if he finishes seventh or higher in the live final that he'll beat his previous best live cash of $158,829. This was Miquel Munoz's reward for a runner-up finish in a €2,200 buy-in event held, ironically, in Prague, Czech Republic in December 2017.
Outside of poker, Miquel Munoz is passionate about rescuing, fostering, and re-homing animals. He also has plans to open his own real estate development company, a dream he may realise sooner than he thought possible if he secures the $1,550,969 top prize in the WSOP Main Event.
Speaking to PokerNews, Miquel Munoz said, "Becoming the WSOP Main Event champion would be the greatest, most gratifying accomplishment of my life. I try not to fantasise about it though, as high expectations in a single poker tournament lead to great disappointment." Wise words, indeed.

Final Table Profile: Stoyan Obreshkov
Bulgaria's Stoyan "UncleToni" Obreshkov is the player bringing up the rear when the now eight finalists take their seats at King's Casino on December 15. Obreshkov is armed with 2,125,000 chips, or approximately 14 big blinds, meaning the pressure is off him somewhat. One double-up and the Bulgarian will find himself back in the thick of it.
Obreshkov is a seasoned poker player, one with more than $1.2 million in live tournament earnings. He reached the final table of the 2018 WSOP Europe Main Event at King's Casino where he fell in ninth-place for €75,461 ($85,868). Two months prior to that impressive finish, Obreshkov was the third-place finisher at the 2018 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open, a result that saw him win a career-best $349,889.
"I really love dancing, most of all bachata. It is definitely the biggest passion of mine outside of poker. I found yoga four or five years ago and have been in love with the process since then. Also, I have been into sports my whole life. Currently, I mostly swim, play tennis, enjoy climbing, and surfing if there is sun and waves where I am."
The Bulgarian hopes to dance his way to a massive prize when the final table commences, although he's adamant it's not the money that motivates him to play poker. Should he become this event's champion, Obreshkov plans to secure his family's financial future, open a dance school in his home town and make some donations to charitable causes.
