We have a new television star on the EPT. His name is Ken Johnson, a PokerStars qualifier, from Eagle Mountain, Utah.
The 33-year-old qualified for the Copenhagen leg of this season’s tour in a 300 FPP tournament, but couldn’t find himself a passport in time to get to Denmark. There are special rules for special circumstances and he was able to switch to Deauville, where he made the second day with 32,750 in chips.
Back home, Ken runs a construction company and plays poker only recreationally (“my wife won’t let me play for high stakes”) driving into Nevada for live action, but staying at home to play on PokerStars. Now he’s constructing a stack of chips – he’s up to around 75,000 – and he’s to the left of the tower belonging to Ram Vaswani.
Stay tuned to find out how this one goes.
