$2,500+$200 Championship NLH
Level 2: Blinds 100/200
The Championship event always brings out the big guns and a few of them were in their seats as the first card hit the felt this morning.
Matt Glantz is one we only see in the big event and given that he has more than $6.8 million in career earnings, he doesn’t need to grind through the huge fields of the preliminary events. He’s coming off a big month of June at the WSOP, where he cashed six times. Three of those were final tables for five-figure scores.
Dan Howe may not be a household name because he’s mostly playing the big cash games, but he’s just back from Vegas after a deep run and cash in the WSOP Main Event. We only see him in the Championships because the rest of the time he’s playing cash and those results are not reported. So although he doesn’t have million in tournament earnings, he’s got what it takes. He made the final table of the 2013 Borgata Poker Open Championship, finishing 7th for $132,615.
