The shortest stack entering the final table is Team PokerStars Pro Eugene Katchalov with 262,000. He may be the man bringing up the rear, but he's the only one carrying a Super High Roller title with him as back in 2011, Katchalov won the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure $100,000 Super High Roller for $1.5 million. In fact, Katchalov beat fellow final table player Daniel Negreanu for the title.
Although Katchalov has tournament results dating back to 2004, it wasn't until 2007 that he really made a name for himself with his first major win. At the end of that year, Katchalov won the World Poker Tour Doyle Brunson Five Diamond World Poker Classic for just under $2.5 million. The following summer, he showed that his victory was no fluke when he cashed five times at the World Series of Poker including one final table in the $10,000 World Championship Omaha Hi/Lo Split event.
After winning the PCA Super High Roller in 2011, Katchalov went on to win his first WSOP gold bracelet a few months later. He took down the $1,500 Seven Card Stud event at the Series for over $122,000 and nearly won a second bracelet that same year when he final tabled the $1,500 Limit Hold'em Shootout event.
Katchalov has over $7 million in live tournament earnings, but will have a bit of a ways to go if he wants to add to that here. A short stack coupled with a very tough final table surely isn't going to make this a walk in park for him.
