Day 1 Officially in the Books
Hey High Rollers, the main event of the 44th annual World Series of Poker is chugging along, Day(s) 1A) B) & C) are in the books now and check it out, my buddy Mark Kroon has the chip lead!!! YES! Kroon, AKA the ‘PokerHo’ is a former sponsored pro at Ultimate Bet. We met at a tourney I organized at Four Aces Poker Club in Montreal, at the time, it was the largest ever event in Quebec with a $1500 buy-in or higher…that is, until the WPT came into Playground Poker.
Kroon is a large guy, very loud, and funny… usually he’s the centre of attention, in a good way, and he’s close friends with Phil Hellmuth, in fact Kroon was on the ESPN show, that starred Hellmuth and Annie Duke…the name escapes me…but it was pretty good. Kroon owns a bar in Madison, Wisconsin and hosts his own radio show in the Badger state. 246,000 in chips after eliminating Ylon Schwartz on the final hand of Day 1 C)…Schwartz a former November 9’er.
