The shortest stack entering the final table is also the player least known. Still, Jim McCrink has plenty of tournament results on his record and it's no surprise he was able to maneuver his way to this final table.
Hailing from Las Vegas, Nevada, McCrink has over $575,000 in live tournament earnings. He has numerous cashes dating back to 2005, but only one over $100,000. That score came in 2010 when McCrink finished 62nd in the World Series of Poker Main Event for $138,285. By making the final table and the money here in the EPT Barcelona €50,000 Super High Roller, McCrink has already surpassed that and earned his largest cash ever.
In total, McCrink has 10 WSOP cashes, four cashes from the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure and two World Poker Tour cashes. Those four cashes at PCA events amount to over $110,000. The largest of those came this year in January when McCrink took fifth in the $10,000 6-Max High Roller for just shy of $55,000.
McCrink is already on pace to have his best year ever on the felt, but he'll have some work to do here if he wants to climb the ladder at this stacked final table. McCrink may only have 500,000 in chips — the smallest amount coming into the final table — but he's never been one to panic all tournament long.
