Table of Death

@HPTPoker Championships Day 2 has a number of really tough tables among teh 20 in play for the 178 players who advanced to today. Let's take a walk around Table 5 and see who's here with HPT resumes.

Seat 1 - 'HPT' Cord Garcia, 2016 HPT Blackhawk champ, 6th at Reno. Oh yeah, he won the first WSOP Colossus, too.

Seat 3 - Duke Lee - 2015 HPT Reno Champ. Just ask him about multi-tabling two major tourneys going on at BOTH the M and the Rio during this year's WSOP.

Seat 6 - 2016 HPT Reno Champ Loren Klein. All he did this summer was win one WSOP bracelet and finish runner-up in a $10k buyin WSOP event 3 days later.

Seat 8 - Alex Greenblatt, runner-up at HPT Blackhawk in 2013

Seat 9 - Stan Jablonski, with 19, that's nineteen, HPT cashes on his career resume.

Add locals Sok Chean in the 2 seat (final tabled the Monolith here in 2015), Cherie Wallace in the 4 seat (final tabled the Ante Up World Championships here this year) Arish Nat in the 5 seat (a cash game specialist with 2 HPT cashes here at Thunder Valley) and San Francisco's Andrew Seidman in the 7 (31st in the 2014 WSOP MillyMaker) and there is not a soft spot.
