Seat 5: Jiri Noga, Czech Republic – 1,561,000

Jiri Noga, 28, hails from the Czech Republic and has been playing poker for ten years.  Due to the restrictions in online play in his country, Noga has recently been honing his live game both at the cash tables and in tournaments.  He did once dabble online, playing mostly cash games, but now focuses on tournaments when not at work in real estate. Lying second in chips as he starts the final table, Noga’s experience makes him a cool customer, despite this being the largest payout of his poker career, regardless of his finishing position.
