Josh Pollock has been coming to the World Series of Poker since 2007, which is when he notched his first cash by placing 49th in Event #12 $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em / Six Handed for $4,188. Since then, Pollock has added six more cashes to his WSOP résumé, with his best result being a 303rd-place finish in the 2011 WSOP Main Event for $35,492. This event marks Pollock's second cash of the summer after he previously finished 113th in Event #6 $1,500 "Millionaire Maker" No-Limit Hold'em for $7,278.
This may be the 29 year old's first final table here at the WSOP, but that's not to say he's inexperienced playing against top professionals for a lot of money. Back in August 2011, Pollock had his biggest career score when he made the final table of the World Poker Tour Legends of Poker $3,500 Main Event, which included the likes of Will "The Thrill" Failla and WSOP bracelet winners Ken Aldridge and Owais Ahmed. Pollock finished fourth in that event for $128,500.
If Pollock, who begins the day fourth in chips, can finish in either first or second here today, he will enjoy an even larger payday and quite possibly his first WSOP gold bracelet.
