Champions Club Members Elias and Busquet Are Here

Feb 21, 2016

A number of big-named pros have been spotted playing Day 1 of the Main Event, including Darren Elias and Olivier Busquet.

Elias – last season’s WPT Player of the Year runner up – has five six figure scores in WPT events, including two victories. Elias’ first victory came at the Borgata in September 2014 when he won the Championship event for $843,744, which he followed up by winning the WPT St. Maarten in November of that year for $127,680.

In total Elias has $3.5 million in live tournament earnings, which puts him a little behind Busquet who’s amassed $6.8 in his live poker career.

Busquet won the WPT Championship at Borgata in 2009 for $925,514, but his biggest score was winning the EPT Barcelona Super High Roller for $1.1 million in August of 2014.
