Edward Han, Day 1B Level 10

Edward Han came into Level 10 in 2nd place with 198k. Han has $46k in live earnings without a 5-digit score to his name. He may be one of the few PLO8 grinders out there as three of his cashes have come in that format including a good run at last year’s WSOP. He finished 19th in a $1500 PLO8 for $5,588 and 42nd in the $1500 PLO8/Big O for $3,908. Han turns to NL and a different venue as he searches for his first major live cash.

Sean Kurland, Day 1B Level 10

Sean Kurland came into Level 10 with 187k, good for 3rd place. Kurland had a really nice run here at the Big Stax series in 2015 with some heart-breaking finishes just off the Final Table. Here’s a look:

kurland results

Those are Kurland’s three largest scores out of his $29k in career winnings. He certainly hopes to improve on that great stretch of play from a couple of years ago.
