Cortellino Continues Good Run, Chip Leader at World Poker Finals
Day 2 action is done at the World Poker Finals, and Lenny Cortellino continues a strong run of play, finding himself the chip leader with 589,000.
Cortellino (pictured right) won the $5,000 buy-in NLH event prior to start of the championship tournament, banking $377,175. He’s a Foxwoods regular and is clearly on top of his game right now.
