Through the Lens: BigHuni’s Big Day

The USPO concludes on PokerGO with the $100K Main Event final table

This is it, the final day of the 2019 USPO. Over a million on the line at today’s final table, along with the $100,000 added from Poker Central to the eventual USPO over all champion. Coming into this event Stephen Chidwick and Sean Winter were tied a top the leaderboard, but with Chidwick’s elimination late last night, Winter is the front runner. Winter can still be caught by Nick Schulman and David Peters, who both advanced to today’s place. Here is a look back at some of my favorite images from yesterday.

As I shot down to upload these photos, I noticed a tweet from Dan Smith that was too good not to mention. Smith tweeted about the possibility of additional time banks, so you can clarify bet sizing as Chidwick stares into your soul. All too perfect. 
Can Sean Winter climb into the money today and lock up the title as USPO Champion? Winter will need to fade a comeback from a short stacked Nick Schulman to take down the title. Peters will need Winter to not cash, and then go on to win the event to have a shot. So many possibilities! 
Chris ‘BigHuni’ Hunichen carries a large chip lead into today’s final table. Hunichen has had so much success online over the last decade, he will put forth his experience today and try to close this one out. He is the only player to come into play with over 100 big blinds.
