Lopez Looking For His Big Breakthrough

CPPT Main Event
Level 5 (100/200/25)
Total Entrants: 159
Edgar Lopez (Stamford, CT)
There are plenty of big name and big time players in this field, with WSOP Bracelet winners, Circuit Ring winners, Foxwoods champions and nearly everything in between, but there are also plenty of players in this Card Player Poker Tour Main Event field that are looking for their first breakthrough score and Edgar Lopez (Stamford, CT) is one of them.

Lopez has had a few results over the past couple of years, with all of them coming at Foxwoods, with his biggest score coming in a $200,000 GTD Mega Stack Challenge XXI event where made a Final Table run and finished 7th for just under $8,000.

We've seen plenty of players make their first big score during this CPPT series, including Robert Campion, who finished 2nd in Event 7 as well as last night's Event 9 champion, Tom Cady.

Could Lopez be the next player to breakthrough on the Card Player Poker Tour's biggest stage? Maybe and while he's at a loaded table here in Flight A, with Tarun Gulati, Teddy Geddes and Samuel Taylor, he seems to be holding his own currently playing near the chip average as play moves into Level 5.
