2013 Monolith Champ is Chipleader Now
Sure, Jasthi Kumar won $116,693 in this year's WSOP Main Event.
Sure, Jasthi won $80,480 last April by winning the WPTDeepStack Main Event here at Thunder Valley.
Did you know Jasthi is ALSO the 2013 Monolith Champion, having won this when the HPT came to Thunder Valley in September 2013 and took home $44,000 for that win, at the time his biggest cash ever in a tourney?
There were 593 players when Jasthi won the 2013 event, then called the $425 deepstack (before this had its uber-cool Monolith name).
Jasthi just knocked out a player TT>AJ here in Day 2 to move to 1,750,000 and with 32 players left he is 450,000 clear of the field.
