The shortest stack remaining in the tournament, just 11 big blinds, belongs to 26-year-old recreational player Harrison Dobin.
Like most everyone, Dobin was heavily affected by COVID-19. For him, a recently started business had to be put on ice, and he soon found himself with a lot of free time and little to do with it.
A small-stakes live player with zero online experience, he tried his hand at the virtual felt and found some success during the summer bracelet series on WSOP.com with eight cashes for about $45K according to HendonMob.
The improbable final table run during the WSOP Main Event that's followed gave Dobin and his buddies hope they'd get a chance to gather at the Rio together for an epic rail experience honoring Dobin's recently deceased best friend Marty. Unfortunately, that won't be happening thanks to the pandemic, but Dobin remains excited for the "surreal" opportunity and said there's no pressure on him as the shortest stack.
“I'm ready to sling it in at any moment when I find my spot," he said.
