Chris Kusha, Day 1A Level 10

Chris Kusha has ~245k and the lead going into Level 10. Kusha has ~325k in live earnings and is just over a year removed from his best live score. Last year, he had the exciting opportunity to make a deep run in the 2016 WSOP Main Event, falling short of the coveted Final Table with a 27th place finish. That earned him $269,430 and a taste of the biggest stage in poker.

Boris Kromas, Day 1A Level 10

Kromas comes into Level 10 with a tie for the lead, ~245k, after spending his dinner break at the cash tables. Kromas has ~$28k in career earnings but has logged over half of that this year. His big score came in a win at the Sands in a $400 in May for $13,500. He looks to find himself in a similar situation this weekend and is off to an excellent start here on Day 1A.
