Benitez advances to his fifth Super MILLION$ final table with 7,779,222 chips, but he has never won the event. But, the player has won over $1.88 million in previous Super MILLION$ tournaments. His total earnings will surpass the $2 million mark if he finishes among the top six players.
Aram Oganyan is second at the chip counts with 3,424,651 but is inexperienced in winning such events. Besides, this is his first time reaching the final table, and he is assured of winning $62,392.
Konstantin Maslak is third in the standings with 3,410,480 chips and is among the regular Super MILLION$ players that are eyeing their first victory. This is his seventh final table, and he hopes to beat his opponents.

Rodrigo Selouan is fifth in the chip standings with 2,195,924 chips, just a few chips more than David Coleman, who is sixth with 2,167,816 chips. Both of them have 31 big blinds.
Selouan has reached five Super MILLION$ final tables in 50 tournaments, while Coleman reached his sixth final table in 47 tournaments. Each player is striving to win their maiden Super MILLION$.
The table's two shortest stacks are among its biggest names. Mikita Badziakouski is competing for his maiden Super MILLION$ title with 784,650 chips or 11 big blinds. Unfortunately, his stack might kill his dream despite being a renowned player.
Justin Bonomo holds 511,891 chips being the shortest stack. He won a Super MILLION$ title in February 2021, and he can make an unexpected comeback.
