Another day, another win for Stephen Chidwick. After a grueling heads up battle, Chidwick defeated Cary Katz yesterday to take down the $25K PLO event, putting himself back in front of the USPO standings. Event 7 also kicked off yesterday, and returns today with the final table of 6. Leading the way is Ben Yu, who bagged a massive chip lead with over 3,000,000 in the bag. The 2nd biggest stack belongs to Jake Schindler with just over 1,200,000. You can watch that final table live on PokerGo starting at 5PM EST.

Stephen Chidwick wins Event #6 at the 2019 US Poker Open for $351,000.
Stephen Chidwick wins Event #6 at the 2019 US Poker Open for $351,000. I don’t even know what to say at this point. Chidwick is not human, but boy am I glad he’s on my fantasy team. 
Also at today’s final table is the man himself, Nick Schulman. Schulman is usually in the booth calling the action on these high roller events, but today he gets to showcase his skills on the other side of the production. Schulman will have to get it going early as he comes into play as the shortest stack. 
Keith Tilston made his presence known at last years USPO, with 4 cashes and a victory in the 50K NLH event. This is only Tilston’s second event of this series, so we will see if he can carry momentum moving forward and make a run at the USPO title. 
With over $26 million in earnings, and a 1st place in the $100K at Aussie Millions less than a month ago, Bryn Kenney needs no introduction. He is one of the best high roller tournament players ever, and comes into today’s final table right in the middle of the pack. Kenney is a viable threat at any final table, and today is no different. Keep an eye on Kenney as he tries to take down another high roller title.
