Erik Christensen

The afternoon wears on and the entry count continues to climb at a steady pace. We should easily top 150 before the first break and it won’t stop climbing until Sunday afternoon.

Erik Christensen is another familiar face in today’s field, getting an early jump on the big opening event. He came close to winning his first WSOP Circuit ring here back in September, finishing runner-up in the $1,125 NLH Single Re-Entry event, but he made it through last month. Christensen earned that first ring in Iowa in April to push his career total cash over $400,000.

In an interesting research stat, the win also made him the second most successful “Christensen” in WSOP history after Casper Christensen’s single cash for a 62nd Main Event finish.
