Michael Telker will enter the final table second to last in chips, which means he'll have his work cut out for him. For most of Day 1 and Day 2, Telker flew under the radar until he started to amass chips near the money bubble and become a true threat. Once into the money, Telker was short, but found a timely double with pocket jacks against Terje Augdal to get right back in the mix.
The largest score on Telker's record is a third-place finish in the £1,000 No Limit Hold'em Turbo side event at the 2011 EPT London for £13,500. He also had a deep run at the 2010 EPT San Remo Main Event where he earned €10,500.
Telker has just $48,207 in live tournament earnings, which is less than double the buy-in for this event. He's also earning way more money than he's won for his entire live career, but we'll be looking to run his stack up in order to truly make a run at things.
