Level 3 (Blinds 75/150)
Total Entries: 152
As players enter Level 3, there are some familiar faces in Event 1 that made some decent runs during the Summer Poker Open and are back for some Deep Stacks Challenge action.
Borgata regulars Amir Genzel and Perry Kaplan are both in the field, as is Andrew Zhu. Ed Kinney, who finished in 12th place in SPO Event 6 for $3,026, is also running in Event 1.
But, perhaps the most recognizable face, or voice, is that of Luis De La Cruz, who took down Event 13, good for a $15,711 pay day.
Luis, who’s been quiet through the early portions of this tournament, was one of the most charismatic and energetic players during the Summer Poker Open. Luis was never afraid to celebrate taking down a pot and was frequently seen high fiving anyone within distance, but Luis backs all that up with his winning play, and his newly won BSPO trophy. He’s hoping to make another deep run today.
