The pride of Island Park, NY, Mike Linster, has fired again in this final flight. We spotted him in some earlier flights, but no word on how many bullets he’s in. The professional poker player won back-to-back tournaments three years ago during the 2013 Winter Poker Open. In addition to that, he’s got one WSOP Circuit win and a WPT title. His WPT Regional Championship came in April 2013 at bestbet Jacksonville. That’s his largest cash to date, good for $296,521 of his more than $1.2 million in career earnings.
So far today he’s more than doubled his 25,000 starting stack and is up to about 65,000 in early action.
This flight is going to run until almost 5am, which means any players hoping to bag chips will be up late tonight.
