Pahuja, Le Headline WPT Bay 101 Shooting Star Final Table

Nam Le: Looking for Bay 101 title #2.

A record field at the WPT Bay 101 Shooting Star is down to the final six with Mukul Pahuja leading the way to the $1.25m first-place prize.

Pahuja, who's been on a tear in World Poker Tour events over the last four months, will come into play with 6.47m chips, just ahead of Dylan Wilkerson with 5.85m.

With a 2nd-place finish at WPT Montreal, an 8th at WPT Lucky Hearts and 30th at the recent LAPC, Pahuja has four top 30s since November and two final tables.

Add in a third at the Seminole Hard Rock in August last year and Pahuja's cashed for over $1.2m in just seven months - a number he could double with a win at Bay 101.

Wilkerson, Suller, Le, Greer in Contention

Also on a pretty good run in WPT's is Wilkerson, who finished second at WPT Fallsview in Niagara Falls just last month.

Wilkerson earned $228k in that one and is in good position to make plenty more if he can hold his ground.

Shaun Suller, who finished fourth at the WPT Five Diamond in December, sits third heading into the final table with 4.2m in chips.

Winner of this event back in Season IV, Nam Le, is back at the final table but with some work to do at 1.7m in chips.

WPT glory
End of the WPT rainbow.
