Tryba Playing Triple The Average

Event 1 (Day 1)
Level 9 (300/600/100)
Total Entries: 332
Players Remaining: 153
Chip Average: 50,000

Chris Tryba
While we were going to give you a rundown of some of some of the bigger stacks in the room, the search for multiple "big" stacks didn't yield much of anything and when we passed Chris Tryba moving from a broken table we knew why, most likely because he has all of them.

While many players are playing either at or near the chip average, Tryba is playing close to 150,000 heading into the end of Level 9.

Foxwoods is Tryba's "home turf", or so he says in a recent tweet, but he hasn't been feeling a "home turf advantage" over the last year, as his last cash at Foxwoods came in 2014 version of this series, when he finished as the runner up in the Card Player Poker Tour Main Event for just over $90,000.

But that certainly doesn't mean that he hasn't been making scores since then, as he has over 140 live rated cashes to his name totaling just under $1,500,000 in earnings, with 20 of those coming over the last year at circuit stops from the WSOP, to the Heartland Poker Tour and nearly all the "local" tournament series.

But, despite the multiple poker titles, including two WSOP Circuit Rings he won in 2009, Tryba's crowning achievement on the felt and his biggest score came in 2012 when he won a WSOP Bracelet in a $2,500 Mixed Hold'em event, earning him just over $210,000.

He might be on his way to adding another piece of hardware to his poker trophy case if he can keep this pace up, as he is the far and away chip leader of the $100,000 GTD CPPT Event 1.
