Chip leader Laszlo Bujtas is the youngest player at the final table at just 25. Going by the name of 'omaha4rollz' online, Bujtas has been playing poker for ten years and said he enjoyed a swingy day yesterday to hold onto the chip lead he started the day with to lead the WSOPE Main Event with just six players left.
This is made all the more remarkable by the fact that at the end of Day 1a, there was only one player with fewer chips than him!
"I played good overall," he said. "I just got really, really lucky in the end."
That luck saw him bust the last two players and lock up the chip lead. This time last year he finished 58th in the WSOPE Main Event, but a win today would vault him into the top ten of the Hungarian all-time money list, a list of players which includes 2012 WSOP Main Event final tablist Andras Koroknai and bracelet-winner Valdemar Kwaysser.
