Adam Lamers is based out of Edmonton, AB and is a reporter for PokerNews and a fill in tournament reporter over on PokerNews Canada. Lamers enters the final six players sitting in fifth position.

Jeff Fast is a dealer at Fallsview Casino in Niagara Falls, ON. Fast sits in sixth place as the short stack but is a double up away from third place.
