John DePersio

Event 1 champion John DePersio is in the midst of another run here in Event 2. His win just a few days ago earned him $19,649 along with a his second gold ring and 50 points toward the Casino Championship race. As the lone champion, DePersio is the points leader in the clubhouse and is adding to that total here in the money of Event 2.

There was recently a raise to 36,000 and DePersio bumped it up to 100,000 from the button. The raiser called and DePersio and his opponent went heads up. They checked down the runout and DePersio turned over pocket queens for the win.

After starting the day with just over 105,000 chips, DePersio currently sits with better than 700,000 and is among the chip leaders.
