Lavallee leads WPT Festa al Lago final 11
Jason Lavallee is primarily a cash game player.
But the incredible run the 23-year-old Canadian pro is on at Freddy Deeb even close.
The remainder of the final 11 includes Kido Pham, Tommy Vedes, Shawn Cunix, Larry Berg, Jason Burt, Richard Sciuto, Aaron Jones, Chris Bjorin, and Craig Crivello.
With such a huge chip lead, Lavallee feels relatively comfortable with his stack, but has no plans to play the bully Sunday.
"If I would have 20 to 25 big blinds I would be kind of handcuffed, and I wouldn't be able to go after the blinds as much as I would like," he said. "But the difference between 50 and 200 big blinds isn't really that much, because even with 50 big blinds I would still cover everybody.
"The game plan doesn't really change that much, I just have a little bit more pad to take some hits."
