If there's a poker player who can say he's almost literally been working most of his life for this moment, it's Gordon Vayo.
The now San Francisco-based Vayo, originally from Bloomington, Illinois, started his poker journey at 16, playing tournaments under the name "holla@yoboy" on PokerStars.
Ten years later he's at the final table of the World Series of Poker Main Event.
With $974,714 in career live cashes - 26 of them at the WSOP - Vayo is no stranger to live poker despite first making his mark online where he won $1.5m before 2009.
He didn't begin playing live until 2008. His previous highest finish in a WSOP was 2nd in the $3,000 No Limit Hold'em Six-Handed Event in 2014 when he scored $314,535. This is his 8th cash of the 2016 WSOP.
Vayo's key moment came on Day 6 when he got all-in pre-flop with AK and out ran AA.
