Joseph Liberta, Day 1A Level 7

Joseph Liberta is the defending champion of this event after winning last August for $124,463. That score remains Liberta’s career best out of a total of ~$642k in winnings. Over the last year, Liberta has added five more cashes to his resume with his best being a 9th place finish at the WSOP. His Final Table appearance in the $1k Event #65 earned him $17,019 and a chance at a bracelet that fell just short.

Liberta is working with less than a starting stack so far on Day 1A and shares a rotation with Joe Cashen, Mike Kemeter, Andrew Mullen, and Vince Teutonico. Still plenty of time to get things going however, with the starting stack still worth 60 big blinds heading into Level 8.
