The whole poker world assembles in Las Vegas for the summer, bringing a crop of players from across the world into one area. Among the players who bagged over 100,000 in their respective Day 1 session are some from all different parts of the country.
The leader of the aptly named Chip Leader Coaching, Chance Kornuth starts Day 2 near the top with 184,000. Originally hailing from Colorado, Kornuth has lived in Florida and now calls Washington, D.C. home. Kornuth never makes life easy for his opponents and his large stack has him as a relative favorite to run deep in this event.
California’s Jason Les is a heads up specialist so revered, he once beat a computer as part of the Carnegie Mellon Heads Up Challenge. That prowess was shown this summer when he cashed in the WSOP $10,000 Heads Up event. In recent years, Les has started to play more live tournaments and with his starting stack of over 100,000, is in a great position to earn his first career cash at The Venetian.
Greg Fishberg limits his travel schedule to primarily around his home state of Pennsylvania and is out to make the most of his latest trip to Las Vegas. The Parx legend has put together three cashes so far this summer and brought over 140,000 into Day 2. Fishberg is well-versed in deep-structured tournaments and this event plays right into that specialty.
