Seat 8: Martin Mänd, Estonia - 1,190,000

It was Tallinn-based Martin Mänd’s birthday yesterday, and he gave himself the present of a final table appearance in the Main Event.  “The cards were running well for me,” he said, as he played in his first poker tournament since April.  The reason for the hiatus: a new baby, which has understandably taken his attention from poker, which he used to play very regularly around his job in sales – but only locally in Tallinn.  Mänd’s usually stuck to side events at live poker festivals, and making the final table here represents his biggest live cash to date.
