Seat 2: Bryce Yockey (4,465,000 in chips)

Bryce Yockey

The Poker Players Championship is an incredibly difficult event to play for anyone, but Bryce Yockey has managed to overcome his doubts. He kept his feet on the ground before joining the field, tweeting that, "There is a legit chance I'm not a winning player," while selling action. His appearance turned into a great investment for those who trusted his abilities.

Yockey may be a first-timer regarding a PPC final table, but he's backed by a solid mixed game résumé. His previous ten top 10 finishes at WSOP are highlighted by his win in the $10k Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo Championship in 2017. That triumph was worth Yockey's first (and so far only) bracelet as well as $511,147, the biggest prize of his career.

PLO8 might not be in the mix in the PPC, but Yockey has proved his abilities in a variety of games, including no-limit hold'em, stud, and stud hi-lo. He claims 2-7 triple draw to be among his favorite games, so there is no doubt that Yockey is well equipped for the eight-game mix.
