Dwyte Pilgrim of New York makes his first WSOP final table today, culminating a remarkable two-year run of impressive results, including amassing a collection of gold rings from WSOP Circuit events. Back in March of this year, Pilgrim won his third WSOP Circuit event at Harrah's Rincon where he previously won the Main Event in 2009.

Gavin Smith comes to today's final table as one of the most recognizable faces in poker, thanks in large part to his victory at the 2005 WPT Mirage Poker Showdown where he picked up a cool $1.12 million, plus his appearances at many other WPT and WSOP final tables. With more than $5 million in tourney career winnings, the Canadian is a leading member of the "best without a bracelet" group, his closest call being a runner-up finish in the 2007 $1,500 pot-limit hold'em event.
