Kyle Cheong Going Strong

Kyle Cheong has had a good Day 1b thus far, bad news for others who like him are participating in the Onnit Last Sticker Standing Contest promotion. The player wearing an Onnit sticker who lasts the longest in the WSOP Main Event will earn half his or her buy-in back — $5,000.

Cheong had built up to more than 80,000 earlier before coming back to the pack, although still sits with a healthy stack of almost 60,000. Of course now he's got an extra challenge in store, as T.J. Cloutier has been moved to his left.

Cloutier knows a thing or two about lasting a long time in these WSOP Main Events, having finished in the top five no less than four times, including twice as runner-up (in 1985 and 2000).
