The World Poker Tour is at the Hollywood Casino this week…in Lawrenceburg, Indiana…where 144 players showed up for the latest tour stop: the WPT Hollywood Poker Open.
Not sure if Faraz Jaka was promised 72 virgins in heaven or something if he just absolutely pwned the WPT this season, but once again, he finds himself among the chip leaders. Jaka is stacked second overall after Day 1 with 144,225. Another strong finish could wrap up POY honors for him. Jaka only trails Eric Froehlich with 149,400.
Other notable big stacks include but are certainly not limited to Carlos Mortensen (78,600), Erick Lindgren (62,750) and that’s about it.
