Lindgren will be gunning for his second World Series of Poker bracelet (and second all-time bracelet) when the final table resumes at 3 pm on Wednesday.

It won't be an easy road to his second bracelet though, as the seven-handed final table is absolutely stacked with talent. Lindgren, as mentioned, is currently the chip leader with approximately 1.1 million in chips.

Mike Matusow, a 2-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner and 24th on the all-time tournament money list, is currently second in chips with approximately 540k. Matusow seems to be playing some strong poker as of late, and should be a force at the final table. As always, the "Mouth" should be entertaining as well.

Jeffrey Lisandro is currently in third, with a stack of approximately 510k. Lisandro won his first ever WSOP bracelet in 2007, and will not be out of place at this stacked final table.

Barry Greenstein has a stack of approximately 440k, which is good for fourth place. Greenstein has been bemoaning his bad luck in tournaments as of late, so this showing will no doubt lift his spirits. He has also been mentioning online that his bankroll isn't quite what it used to be, so he will certainly have his eyes firmly fixed on the $537k first place prize.

The list of well-known names at the final table doesn't end there.

Tony G has a stack of approximately 440k. He has no WSOP bracelets to his name as of yet, so Tony G will certainly be very motivated at the final table. Tony G and Mike Matusow at a final table together should be fairly entertaining.

David Benyamine is currently sixth in chips with a stack of 350k, and Tom Schneider will enter the final table as the short stack (195k).

Tom "durrrr" Dwan bubbled the final table, finishing in eighth place after hovering near the top of the leaderboard for most of day 2.

This should be an extremely entertaining final table. All seven of the remaining players are guaranteed at least $58k for making the final table, with the first place finisher receiving $537k and the coveted WSOP bracelet.
