Table 18 had a lot to handle with Kelly Minkin, Victor Figueroa, and 2015 WSOP Colossus winner Cord Garcia at one end. Now they have one of the hottest players in poker, Aaron Mermelstein, on the other end.

Mermelstein only has two WPT final tables, he just happened to win them both. The most recent coming less than a week ago at Maryland Live for $250,000. That wasn’t his first WPT title of the year, thatĀ cameĀ in January at the WPT Borgata Winter Poker Open for his biggest career cash.

In between those two titles, Mermelstein captured the $1,100 No Limit Hold’em title during the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open in August in front of a live-stream audience.
