Juan Nieto Rodriguez, Day 2 Level 22

When play resumed Nieto was in 4th place and has since increased his stack by ~300k (~1.4M). He is sandwiched in between Kane Kalas and Joe McKeehen, certainly a tough spot to be, but Nieto has the chips.

Nieto also has a huge score this year. He took part in a 7-way chop of the Borgata Winter Open Kickoff Event. The $560 buy-in earned him $153,882 which makes up the majority of his career earnings. With only three cashes on his resume, it is fortunate to have played on such a big stage and succeeded. Nieto will now look to repeat that success and record his 2nd six-digit score out of just four cashes.
