Chance Kornuth is among the upcoming underdogs in poker

Most globally renowned poker professional players have had to go through the World Series of Poker and performed outstandingly.

This event is considered by the GPI as one of the most significant when preparing its weekly best top 300-players internationally. In a recent evaluation by the Global Poker Index (GPI), Chance Kornuth from the USA scored 2099.86 GPI points that placed him in the 130th place as of February 2015. However, this is not the only time he has been on the glare of publicity as he rose to global prominence when he clinched the WSOP bracelet years back. Along these tracks, it is crucial to pore over his notable winnings in covered tournaments to impute why he got this ranking.

At the fore of his resume is his WSOP bracelet that slipped in his trophy case in the $5,000 PLO where he brought the final table down to garner a whacking $508,090 in 2010. Later on the same year, he appeared in the PokerStars EPT Main Event in London where he placed 18th to walk away with £21,000. The following year, he played at the WSOP in a $2,500 NLHE finishing 131st to wring out $5,680. In 2012 at the WSOP, he cashed in the $1,500 NLHE for a 49th place to get $10,388, at the $10,000 NLHE Main Event finishing 156th for $52,718 and finally in the $3,000 NLHE Shootout emerging 22nd to rake in $9,086.

The same year saw him venture into the WSOP/E €3,250 NLHE Shootout finishing 14th to get €5,428. 2013 saw him appear in the WSOP again, first at the $1,111 Little One for One Drop NLHE cashing for 345th to get $2,354 and the $10,000 PLO Championship for a 34th position alongside $22,828.
Recently in 2015, he ventured into the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, Main Event coming third to garner $641,140. As of February 2015, he had amassed $1,542,185 in live tournaments only.
