Final Table Bios

Level 26: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

Seat 1: Matt Giannetti - 3,005,000

8081 Matt Giannetti

Matt Giannetti is one of two Champions Club members at today's final table and he is also the chip leader with just over 3 million. That gives this poker professional a great shot at winning another WPT title to go with his triumph at WPT Malta during Season X. He cashed a total of three times during Season X but this is his first cash of Season XI. Giannetti has been playing poker for ten years and eight of them have been as a professional. He has $464,939 in total WPT cashes and his career earnings are close to $4 million. Giannetti was a recent member of the November Nine and he took fourth place at the World Series of Poker Main Event final table this past Fall to score $3 million. He currently resides in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida with his girlfriend and their child. He was born in Worcester, MA and was raised in Upstate New York. The 28-year-old has also spent some time in Austin, TX while attending the University of Texas.

Seat 2: Lily Kiletto - 860,000

8422 Lily Kiletto

Lily Kiletto is the short stack heading into Tuesday's final table with 860,000 and she is the last woman standing in this event. She is originally from Laos and grew up in Raymond, WA. Lily is currently an investor and fashion designer, and formerly worked as a casino dealer. This 30-year-old has been playing poker for 10 years and this is the fourth WPT event she has entered. Lily has $8,000 in career poker earnings and she will easily top that today in Florida with a guaranteed cash worth at least $50,968.

Seat 3: Darryll Fish - 2,660,000 
8397 Darryll Fish

Darryll Fish is another one of the experienced professionals at today's final table. He played very solid poker on Monday, building his stack from one of the smallest left in the tournament up to the second largest by the time the final table was set. The 26-year-old has been playing poker for eight years and he has racked up close to $900,000 in career earnings. Fish has accumulated over $300,000 of that prize money at WPT events. He has cashed six times on the tour and made two previous WPT final tables. Each of those times he finished in sixth place, but with his skill and a large chip stack Fish will surely top that mark today in South Florida. Fish grew up in this region of the country and he currently resides in Fort Lauderdale.

Seat 4: Matt Salsberg - 980,000

8442 Matt Salsberg

Only one poker player in the world can claim making two WPT final tables in the month of February this year, and that is Champions Club member Matt Salsberg. He took sixth place at the Borgata Winter Poker Open final table just 11 days ago. Salsberg also won the WPT Grand Prix de Paris this past Fall and he is in the running for WPT Season XI Player of the Year (a win here in Florida would give him a big lead in the WPT POY standings). This will be Salsberg's third WPT final table and his fourth cash on the tour. In addition to his win in Paris and final table at the Borgata, Salsberg took 42nd place at the Legends of Poker in Season X. Salsberg is also a Producer and Writer in Hollywood, where he formerly worked on the Showtime comedy Weeds. He has been playing in a lot more poker tournaments since the conclusion of that series and his success rate speaks for itself. 

Seat 5: Hayden Fortini - 1,620,000 

8343 Hayden Fortini

Hayden Fortini enters the final table in fourth chip-position with 1,620,000. He is one of the X-factors among the final six. Fortini has never cashed at a WPT event before but he has played solid poker throughout the tournament, most notably during extended play on the money bubble, a time where he accumulated a lot of chips. The 23-year-old poker professional from Vero Beach, FL has over $300,000 and it is very likely he will score the single largest cash of his career at this final table (fifth or better would do it). Fortini has been playing poker professionally for four years. 

Seat 6: Danny Shiff - 1,930,000

8267 Danny Shiff

If you hear a player chatting at today's final table odds are you will be listening to Danny Shiff. The 38-year-old who grew up in Israel and the Ukraine has been one of the most vocal and entertaining players in the tournament. When filling out his bio sheet late last night he came across the question, "How would other players describe you?". He then looked up to the table and asked with a grin, "Guys how do I play? Can you help me out here." Shiff enters the final table in third chip-position and he will be looking to claim his first WPT title. This will be his sixth cash on the tour and he has$ 269,512 in career WPT earnings. Shiff has also worked in Real Estate for 17 years but he has also won over $650,000 playing poker during 15 years at the tables.
