Seat 1: Mark Drover, 24, Newfoundland, Canada -- 1,430,000 chips

Mark Drover

Mark Drover is working towards a Masters in political science at Memorial University in St John’s, Newfoundland, Canada. He qualified for the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure on PokerStars after reaching stage five in the Steps program and joining the $700 qualifier, meaning he’ll now get a great return on his investment. Two of his friends from St John’s also qualified for the PCA on PokerStars, and they have been railing Drover since being knocked out themselves.

Drover, 24, normally plays mid-stakes online multi-table tournaments, but he has made four Venetian Deepstack final tables in Las Vegas as well as one World Series of Poker cash, giving him total live tournament earnings so far of $34,497. That figure has been far eclipsed here at this final table.
