With over $2.2 million in live tournament winnings, including a win this April in a WSOP Circuit event in Chester, Pa., Kyle Bowker has long been one of the most successful poker players on the circuit.
Bowker has been moved to the same table as former spelling bee champion Pratyush Buddiga and has 7,500 chips in his stack.
One table in front of Bowker is Will "The Thrill" Failla, a man with more than $4.3 million in live winnings. It hasn't gone well for Failla so far today as his stack has dwindled down to around the 1,650 mark.
Finally, we noticed that Dwight Pilgrim is no longer in his seat, leading us to believe that he has busted from the tournament. Pilgrim shot to fame in 2009 when he won the $5,000 buy-in WSOP Circuit Championship event for over $125,000, and then in 2010 he won the World Poker Tour Borgata Main Event for $733,802. Sadly for Pilgrim, his wait for a bracelet continues.
