Event 5: $1,500 Pot-Limit Hold'em

Another Tough Table

[user145752] • Level 1: 25-25, 0 ante

We found another table over in the silver section that isn't quite as tough as Ivey's table but is still pretty solid.

Dan Kelly- Better known as "djk123" online, Kelly has made a name for himself on the live circuit as well. He stormed onto the scene as a 21 year old when he won the prestigious $25,000 Six-Handed No-Limit Hold'em event in 2010. He bested a stacked final table that included Shawn Buchanan, Frank Kassela, Jason Somerville, and Eugene Katchalov. Earlier this year, he final tabled the LA Poker Classic, finishing 3rd for over $500,000.

Steve Brecher- Speaking of WPT final tables, Steve Brecher is also at the table, sitting to the left of Kelly. Brecher final tabled the WPT main event in 2004, finishing 6th for $230,000. Five years later, he won the Bay 101 Shooting Star tournament, cashing in on over $1,000,000. Last year, he finished 31st in the main event, winning just under $250,000.

Joe Kuether- Kuether may not be a house hold name yet, but he is looking to have a big WSOP this year. He's been on fire so far this year, final tabling the WSOP Circuit Event at Caeser's Palace in January. He ultimately bowed out in 7th place, but it was a great start to the year for him. Just three months later, Kuether returned to the Circuit in Rincon, and this time, he won the whole thing, pocketing over $110,000. Along the way, he bested Freddy Deeb, who finished in 3rd place.

We will be sure to keep tabs on this table as the day goes on.
