Professional players aren’t known for their love of the morning hours. But we did find our first big name in the game very early.

Kane Kalas made the trek across the state from his home in Coral Gables for a chance at another big payout. A deep result here could push him over $1 million in a career that includes titles at Parx Big Stax IX and LAPC last spring. Kalas’ biggest result came in 2014 when he finished second to Darren Elias in WPT Borgata Main Event.
