There Are So Many $10k Major Tourneys in January That the WPT Winter Poker Open Doesn’t Even Get a Clever Headline

Borgatawinteropen1The Entities that comprise Wicked Chops Poker have been so busy launching, plotting a coup attempt on a certain Iranian leader, and trying to bring back the Forbidden Dance jet-setting around the globe reporting on all of the major January tournaments that we needed a few days to catch up with the latest: the WPT Winter Poker Open.

At the end of Day 2, Erik Cajelais led all players with 449,600. Last month Cajelais won the $5k buy-in event at the Doyle Brunson Something Something 5-Diamond Something Something Classic, besting a final table that included Tex Barch, Erik Seidel, Justin Bonomo, Shannon Shorr, and Joe Tehan, whose last name sounds too much like Tehran for our liking.

At "press time," Cajalais has continued to build his chip lead, now stacked at 650k. Of the 84 currently remaining, some big names remaining include Haralabos Voulgaris, Bill Edler, Johnny "World" Hennigan, Victor Ramdin, Steve Dannenmann, Chip Jett, Isaac Haxton, and Vanessa Rousso, a woman.
