Ken O’Donnell

With the Day 1A starting field nearly cut in half, the opener’s headlines are emerging and it’s Ken O’Donnell that’s top story thus far.

O’Donnell holds over 200,000 and he’s leading the field in the late stages of Thursday play. This is familiar territory for the Florida resident who just a few months ago final tabled the Tampa Poker Classic Main Event finishing third for $50,906.

With six more levels to be decided, O’Donnell has a ways to navigate yet. His big stack is a great start, though, as it’s good for more than 200 big blinds.
