In the first four years of his live tournament endeavors, Scott Davies hadn't earned more than $70,300 in a single year. He's going to top that just from this result alone and will add to the $218,829 he's earned in 2014 having a career year.
He also has the chance to earn his largest live tournament score ever if he can finish in fifth place or higher. Given that Davies will enter Day 5 with the second most chips, we like his chances to do just that.
Davies is originally from New Jersey in the US, but he now resides in Vancouver, Canada. He attended the University of Miami, and the Miami Hurricanes are his favorite sports team. He's 33 years old and has both graduated law school and passed the bar exam.
Davies is making his eighth World Series of Poker cash of the year in this event. His best came in the $10,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em during the summer where he finished in fourth place for $111,942.
