Deeb in control at WPT Festa al Lago final

'It never gets old making money.'

With two titles and four final-table appearances on the Freddy Deeb is the most experienced player to have booked one of the six seats at Festa al Lago's final table Sunday.

But the two-time Freddy Deeb is an experienced veteran. Some of the other players though, (being on TV and playing for big money) may affect them a little, but I feel comfortable.

"We'll see what happens. I have to get some cards too. It doesn't matter how good you feel, you still have to get cards."

One of the younger players Crivello was referring to is 23-year-old Jason Lavallee, who came into the final 11 with a massive chip lead.

After a difficult play down to the final six, the Montreal, Quebec native will enter the TV final table fifth in chips in an attempt to put his fall from the top behind him.

Can the Canadian come back?

"I don't have as much room to maneuver as I wish I did," he said. "It was a tough day, obviously I took a lot of beats, but I still kept my composure and tried to not spew off too many chips.

"I'm just going to try to go out tomorrow with a fresh mind and not sweat too much over it."

Finally, the short stack at the table is 22-year-old Jason Burt, who is hoping a few years of online MTT and cash-game experience will be enough to keep him from being too shaky on the WPT stage.

"I've played a lot of tournaments, so hopefully I won't be too nervous," he said. "I've never been on TV before, except for some local stuff, so we'll see how it goes."

The final table will play out at the Bellagio in Las Vegas beginning at 4 p.m. PST.
