WSOP Event #32: Angel Guillen makes $2,000 No Limit final
We have a second PokerStars player on a final table: Team PokerStars Mexico Angel Guillen has made the last nine of the $2,000 No Limit, and is already guaranteed a $55,279 pay day.
He sat eighth out of nine in chips as the table gets under way - one that also features Finland's Mika Paasonen, who has qualified for many EPT events on PokerStars. But he was soon raking in the pots to take him up to 1,100,000, mid way through the pack chasing chip leader Jason Boyesm pn 1,947,000.
The man is on a hot streak right now - this will be Guillen's second major cash of the Series - way back in the event #13 he finished runner-up in the $2,500 No Limit event, earning $312,800.
We'll report on his final table progress a little later, but in the meantime, here are the latest chip counts, followed by a little background on the man who has had a fantastic start to his live career...

The 26-year-old from Mexico's City was studying economics at college when he first tried out online poker at PokerStars, as well as chess. At the beginning of this year he joined Team PokerStars Mexico Pro and his first big live poker experience was when he joined us at the PCA, where he finished 51st.
He then finished third in the LAPT Punta de Este event, before that runner-up place earlier this WSOP.
