Jacob is no stranger to playing under the TV lights. Though he only recently became old enough to play in the U.S., Jacob took second place at the World Poker Tour event in Foxwoods earlier this year.

The Yale-educated poker player goes into tomorrow with a shorter stack than he would like. But, as many players have showed us before, it only takes a couple of hands to get back in the game.

Tom Franklin 590,000
Tim Phan 551,000
Steve Wong 295,000
Allen Cunningham 233,000
John Hoang 274,000
David Rheem 170,000
Andy Bloch 163,000
Alex Jacob 106,000
Everett Carlson 86,000

Jacob will return tomorrow afternoon to see what he can do with his stack and see if he can better his second place WPT finish.
