Earlier, we highlighted the run of Team PokerStars Pro JP Kelly. Also remaining in the field is PokerStars qualifier Philipp Gruissem from Germany.
Gruissem doesn't have as stout of a tournament record as Kelly, as he only has three live results we can dig up, but they're for some decent numbers. Gruissem's best result is a third-place finish in EPT Berlin's €10,000 No-Limit Hold'em - 8 Max event for €67,000 ($95,355).
Gruissem's Career Live Tournament Results
- 2009 APT Macau HK$7,500 No-Limit Hold'em - 8 Handed: 1st - HK$117,750 ($15,192)
- 2009 Hold'em Series Paris €3,000 No Limit Hold'em: 8th - €14,750 ($21,768)
- 2011 EPT Berlin €10,000 No-Limit Hold'em - 8 Max: 3rd - €67,000 ($95,355)
Those results total $132,315, which means that Gruissem has already more than doubled that with this result here. As you can see, Gruissem has never had a WSOP cash, making this his first. He's sitting with approximately 4.7 million in chips, which is just slightly under the average stack.
