Team PokerStars Pros have performed well at this summer's Main Event. J.P. Kelly of Team PokerStars U.K./Ireland finished 111th. And Gualter Salles of Team PokerStars Brazil made it to 117th after being down to a single yellow (1,000) chip on Day 5! Both Kelly and Salles earned $57,102 for their finishes.
Two other Team PokerStars Pros remain with chips here on Day 7. Johnny Lodden (Norway) began today with a little over 2.1 million chips, while William Thorson (Sweden) started with more than 7.1 million, good for fifth place to start the day.
Thorson has come close before in the Main Event, finishing 13th in 2006 -- the year of the largest ME field ever (8,773) -- for which he earned $907,128.
