Third in chips coming into the day with 744,000 is 2009 World Series of Poker gold bracelet winner Keven Stammen. Stammen has a long list of results that include four live wins and nearly $1.5 million in earnings.
This High Roller cash isn't the only success Stammen has found recently. Right at the end of last month, he took 34th in the World Series of Poker Europe Main Event for €21,250. Just a week later, Stammen won the €2,000 No-Limit Hold'em Turbo side event here in Sanremo for €92,900.
When Stammen won his bracelet in 2009, he conquered the $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em event for over $500,000. Also during his career, he made the final table of the World Poker Tour World Poker Finals in 2010 (5th — $128,650) and the 2011 Master Classics of Poker Main Event (5th — €89,670).
