Ben Yu is way in front of the remaining six players in Event #7 – $25,000 No-Limit Hold’em. This is Yu’s second final table at the U.S. Poker Open and he’s will have a solid chance to jump into the conversation about who can win the overall points leaderboard.
Currently, Stephen Chidwick leads the 2019 USPO with two wins and four final tables. Sean Winter made the first four final tables of the USPO and is currently in second. Cary Katz is in third, after making three final tables.
Here is a look at the seating chart for the start of play today.
The final table will resume on the PokerGO live stream at 5 p.m. EST. The six remaining players can jump right into the overall USPO race with a win today and Yu seems to have the fast track. Earlier in the USPO, Ali Imsirovic started the day with a big lead, and took a little more than two hours to dispatch his opponents and take down the Event #5 – $25,000 No-Limit Hold’em.
Yu will be hard pressed to duplicate those exact results, but Yu does enter with a similar lead.
Here are the full standings of the 2019 USPO.
