Bonkowski and Tran Match Up

Two tables of late entrants just started off at the beginning of the second level and we found three known players. Dan Shak is sitting at table #352 while both Tyler Bonkowski and JC Tran took their seats at table #353.

Bonkowski is not a house hold name like JC Tran, but last year he broke onto the scene when he won the $3,000 Limit Hold'em event at the WSOP. The Canadian took home a $220,817 first place prize, which is his largest cash to date. Bonkowski also had a deep run in last year's Main Event finishing 60th for another $130,997.

Tran is someone we all know from having massive results in the post-Moneymaker years. In 2007 Tran had his best year winning a World Poker Tour in Reno for $683,473, and finishing runner-up to Eric Hershler in the Los Angeles Poker Classic Main Event for $1,177,010. In total Tran has over $8.2 in live tournament earnings.

Plenty of big names in today's event so far but we expect to see even more towards the end of registration.
