Ed O'Connell
Ed O’Connell, Day 2 Level 18

Ed O’Connell came out of the break in 6th place with 790k. That is up from the 411k he started the day with. O’Connell is working on an excellent tournament career as well. His first cash came in January 2015 and in just over 2 years he has built up $253k in earnings. His best cash came last March when he took 2nd in a $1600 buy-in at the Wynn Classic. That finish earned him $106,366, his only six-digit score. O’Connell has the chips and the tournament experience to become a dangerous player in this event.

Peter Miranda, Day 2 Level 18

Peter Miranda has 795k and was in 5th place coming out of the break. He has a short tournament resume but had a very nice score in 2017. He finished 4th in the Philly Poker Classic at Sugarhouse in a $500 buy-in. That score earned him $19,643 and his career best score. He looks to continue his success here in the Philly area this weekend in the Big Stax 300.
