Of the three players remaining, Ken “Teach” Aldridge enters the episode as the chip leader while Canadian Jeff Vertes sits in second and Will “The Thrill” Failla comes in as the short stack. But it doesn’t stay that way for long. The fireworks start early and happen often as East Coast poker pro Failla takes on the two amateurs and they take on each other.
Once again, viewers can expect to be treated to behind-the-scenes looks into the players at the table as well as the WPT family. Both Failla and Aldridge receive this treatment as Failla’s run to the final table and his tournament strategy are revealed and Aldridge talks about being a retired teacher at poker tables full of younger players still looking to build their resumés.
