Most of the players in the Event 1 field are local grinders or transplanted snowbirds who seek out the temperate climate of the Sunshine State. We do get a few people in the early days who come down to the Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood for early action and poker pro Tim West is one of them.

West decide to hop in 1D to take his shot at the $500,000 guaranteed prize pool and a title would add nicely to his already long list of accomplishments.

He has already booked over $2.5 million in career tournaments earnings, plus the little matter of nearly $4 million in online tournament earnings before Black Friday. West cashed three times this summer at the WSOP including a final table plus two WSOP Circuit rings.
