Two days of poker are in the books at the the World Poker Tour Rolling Thunder Main Event (played at Thunder Valley Casino Resort in Lincoln, California) and Bryan Campanello will lead the final 24 players (of 465 entries) into Day 3 with 1,436,000 in chips. Besides Campanello, only another two players, Chad Eveslage (1,390,000) and Benjamin Zamani (1,350,000), will bring over 1 million chips to Day 3.
The biggest name among the remaining field of players is local poker legend JC Tran, who finished in 5th place in the 2013 WSOP Main Event for $2.1 million! However, the American poker professional will only bring 278,000 (27 bb) in chips to Day 3, so he definetely needs to step up a gear (or two) if he wants to make it to the final table. Now, if he makes it to the final table and finishes in 4th place or better, then he will have over $11,000,000 in live tournament earnings!
