John Racener

John Racener was a bit tardy to the Main Event kickoff, registering right around the first break. Despite spotting the field a few levels of play, he’s passed up much of the competition now claiming a stack of about 160,000. Racener, best known for his runner-up finish in the 2010 World Series of Poker Main Event runner-up finish, is local to the Tampa area and has tournament earnings of better than $9,600,000.

It’s still early, but he leads the field here in Flight A of the Winter Poker Open Main Event.
