Major props to Scott Blumstein for taking the time to talk to us before taking his chip lead into the WSOP Main Event final table. The man is just like you and I. A normal Stoolie from Morristown, NJ who went to Temple and enjoys poker…who also owns 27% of the overall chips left en route to an $8+ million dollar payday. OK, maybe a slight difference between you and I. But Blumstein is no slouch at the tables. Last year he blew through a field of 2,368 at the Borgata Summer Open Event #1 for first place and the tune of $199K+. He entered that final table second in chips and closed it out. Let’s all get behind Scotty because, if anything, him being a Stoolie means Pres can legally take 50% of his winnings and distribute it as he pleases. Can’t argue with the law or Mike Portnoy esq.
The final table will be played today down to 6 people, then tomorrow down to 3, then a champion on Saturday. Follow Scott on his journey here @Sblum2711.
PS – RIP Vegas Nate. May we meet again in destiny.
