Guy Who We Kind of Made Fun of For Not Being a Legend of Poker Leads Second WPT Tournament in Past Two Months

With only 18 players remaining, Joe Pelton, winner of the WPT Legends of Poker this past August, leads the WPT Festa al Lago at the Bellagio after three days of play.

Brandied23Pelton, who looks about as phycially imposing as Mr. Rogers, apparently has one helluva poker game, bringing a big stack of 1,288,000 into Day 4 play. Among the final 18 is a veritable "who's who" of players we've covered or kind of sort of covered the past year, including Brandon Cantu, Can Kim Hua, Carlos Mortensen, Michael "the Grinder" Mizrachi, Captain Tom Franklin, and Joe Tehan, whose name sounds too much like "Tehran" for our liking.

While we were tied up covering state lotteries, we missed that Brandi Hawbaker, a woman, led the event after Day 2. But in typical woman fashion, Brandi (at right), who kind of looks like a badass, flamed out, busting in 35th place.
