Team PokerStars Pros Performing Well

William Thorson looking to improve on his 13th-place finish in the 2006 WSOP Main Event

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.
