Another Fast Start For Nick Palma

CPPT Main Event
Level 7 (200/400/50)
Total Entrants: 177
Nick Palma (New Rochelle, NY)
In every Card Player Poker Tour event that Nick Palma has cashed in, whenever we take our first look towards the "chip leaders" he's had his name either at the top of that list or within the first few spots as he's constantly been able to get off to fast starts and build up an early big stack.

Palma's done the same there here in the CPPT Main Event, starting off strong as he's currently playing just over 100,000 chips, again one of the bigger stacks in the room.

He'll hope that his previous deep runs, which have seen him cash in three of the "preliminary" events as well as make one Final Table, were just "warm ups" as this $300,000 GTD Main Event is what matters most to these players as there is a massive prize pool up for grabs and the honor of being named CPPT Main Event Champion.

Some of Palma's biggest tournament results have come in big events as just last year he won the 2014 World Poker Finals $1,500 Main Event for $40,000 and is coming off a good start to 2015 after making a deep run in the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event.

While it's still very early in this event, Palma is always a threat to make a deep run and that threat is just multiplied when he's able to accumulate chips throughout the first few levels, something he's done time after time here at the CPPT and something he's done again here in the Main Event.

While we are making note of Palma as one of the chip leaders thus far, we won't update a complete list of chip leaders until after the end of the late registration and re-entry period.
